Video #1: BD athlete Adam Ondra bouldering in Fontainebleau, France from Black Diamond Equipment on Vimeo.

Video by Black Diamond - Adam Ondra has recently focused his energies to the world of bouldering, and the results have been stunning. This December, fresh off his second ascent of Gioia (V16) in Italy, Adam set off for his first-ever visit to the iconic boulders of Fontainebleau, France. BD sent videographer Alvi Pakarinen down to Font to film Adam during his four-day trip, and he was on the scene for a slew of hard sends by Adam, including his stunning flash of Gekko Assis (8b+), one of the hardest flashes in history, on his last day in the forest.

This is video #1 of the three-part series Alvi edited together, as Adam discovered just how tricky and fickle Font climbing can be. Adam, though, is not one to get pushed around for too long, and he quickly comes to form and rails off a series of V12s and V13s, including Sideways Daze (V13), Fata Morgana Bas (V12, flash), and Satan I Helvéte (V13).
