Adam Ondra is a sponsored Beal athlete from the Czech Republic. His performance in sport climbing and bouldering, both in competition and on the real rock, had raised the bar in so many ways. In a recent trip to the Red River Gorge, Ondra flashed many of the hard test-pieces that have thwarted numerous climbers to this day. Ondra also completed an incredibly hard route in a granite cave in Norway called Change. Ondra, as well as many others, are saying that the Change route might be the hardest one in the world.
