Back to the Real Thing - Adam Ondra in The Peak DistrictVideo

© Adam Ondra

Adam Ondra has released his homage to the classic climbing film The Real Thing in his latest video which documents his trip to The Peak District in January. 

Despite the flying visit, Adam managed to do a bit of sightseeing, taking in Broomgrove Wall, Stoney Middleton, and the School Room, before heading to Stanage Plantation where he managed to flash Jerry Moffatt's The Ace (f8B) and make a quick ascent of Ron Fawcett's Careless Torque (f8A).

One of the best climbing films I've watched in ages. Ondra & Moffatt is a real winning combo. So nice to see how super-psyched Jerry is for Adam's success. Also loving the cuts into The Real Thing... "10 minutes to the Tor, no 5 minutes...!"

This was great. Brought back memories of watching The Real Thing in a dingy cellar trying not to over train
