Adam Ondra in Fontainebleau - Video #3


Video #3: BD athlete Adam Ondra bouldering in Fontainebleau, France from Black Diamond Equipment on Vimeo.

Here is video #3 of the three-part series Alvi Pakarinen edited together of Adam Ondra's trip to Fontainebleau, France. This one captures Adam's flash of Gekko Assis (V14), one of the hardest flashes in history, on his last day in the forest. Adam said about the flash: "First two moves were OK, then it was very hard to move left heel to the left. I was very close to falling, feeling that I was losing balance for a moment, but somehow I stayed on the rock. There is a one thing that I really love in climbing: heel hooking. And the rest of the problem is about awkward heel hooks, and I felt pretty solid... I felt unstoppable at that very moment."
