About Adam Ondra

Adam Ondra (born February 5, 1993) is a Czech professional rock climber, specialising in lead climbing and bouldering. Described in 2013 as a prodigy and the leading climber of his generation, Ondra is the only athlete to date to have won the World Championships in both disciplines, during the 2014 edition. He holds an analogous record in the World Cup, being the sole athlete to have won in both lead (2009) and bouldering (2010).

Ondra started climbing at age 6, and by the time he was 13 years old had already climbed a route rated at 5.14d. Rock and Ice magazine states that by 2011, Ondra was "onsighting 5.14c’s by the handful", and by 2013 had "more or less repeated every hard route in the world—easily". As of November 2018, Ondra climbed 1550 routes between grades 8a (5.13b) and 9c (5.15d), of which 1 was at 9c (5.15d), 3 were at 9b+ (5.15c) and 3 were onsights at 9a (5.14d).

Ondra is also the only climber to have redpointed a route with a proposed grade of 9c (5.15d) (Silence, September 3, 2017), the first climber to have redpointed a route with a proposed grade of 9b+ (5.15c) (Change, October 4, 2012), the first to flash a 9a+ (5.15a) route (Super Crackinette, February 10, 2018), and the second to have onsighted a 9a (5.14d) route (Cabane au Canada, July 9, 2013). According to The Economist Ondra is "regarded as possibly the best climber ever to fondle rock". Source Wikipedia
