Bio

Born in 1993, Adam Ondra begins to climb at an early age thanks to his parents, also climbers, and right from the start the talent of the child didn’t pass unnoticed. At 8 he climbs his first 7b + and at 13 he closes his first 9th. The enfant prodige begins to distinguish itself not only on rock but also on plastic, entering the world cup circuit at just 16 years old. Champion in life as well as in sport, with a dozen 9a + and a repetition of 9b behind him, at the age of 18 Adam became ambassador of the Climb for Life project, becoming a bone marrow donor. In 2014 he made the history becoming the first climber to have won the world champion title in both bouldering and lead. In Flatanger, Norway, Adam Ondra signed two of the greatest achievements in the history of sport climbing, opening in 2012 the first 9b + (Change) and in 2017 the first 9c (Silence). Moreover, in 2016 he repeated in just 7 days The Dawn Wall on El Capitain, Yosemite, considered the hardest multipitch route in the world.
