Adam Ondra writes: “Understandably, I just had to return back to Roviště and finish the big project. As you could see in last week’s episode, I got quite close, falling off in the last hard move before the route gets easier, but there is still one more 7C+ [V10] boulder problem guarding the anchor. To make things more dramatic, conditions were not ideal with continuous rain showers throughout the whole day. Check out the epic circumstances while finally making the first ascent of Bohemian Rhapsody, the hardest route in Bohemia.”
