A short video of Adam Ondra has just been released online from Bernartwood - the maker of the Adam Ondra film The Wizard's Apprentice. There's some awesome climbing footage of Adam here, and of special note is Adam climbing his local 9a first ascent - Tanec Kuratek (dancing chicken), which is a 9a chimney/bridging exercise!

Here's the intro to the film from Bernartwood:

A new short video featuring Adam Ondra´ s old climbs of three 9a - 9a+ routes, which were initially filmed for the movie The Wizard´s Apprentice, but did not make it into the final version of the movie. So they are really old now, in many aspectst, including the old-school way of filming.

Despite that, two of them are still the hardest routes of Adam´s home climbing area and of the whole Czech Republic. And it would be amazing, if somebody would finally try them... :-)

More about The Wizard´s Apprentice here: WWW.ADAMONDRAFILM.COM/EN

This video consists of following routes:
Xaxid Hostel 9a/+ - Mišja Peč / Osp / Slovenia
Tanec Kuřátek 9a - Jáchymka cave / Moravia Carst / Czech republic
Perlorodka 9a+ - Lidomorna sector / Holštejn crag / Moravian Cars / Czech Republic

Well, old stuff goes through this video away to create space for for somethig new, hopefully much better. But what?

We are currently working on a new and much more challenging film with Adam Ondra called Change. Still a lot of work and traveling ahead of us, but you can already take a look at many photos, videos and texts on the new web-page about the movie.


New free 20 min long "Behing the scenes" movie about CHANGE movie project coming in the first half on May, follow the web-page!
