Just Do It is the crown jewel of Smith Rock, the birthplace of hard sport climbing in America.
The 45-metre testpiece was, in fact, America’s first 5.14c, climbed in 1992 by the French superstar J.B. Tribout. To this day, Just Do It remains a coveted ascent by the world’s strongest climbers.
But to look at that mega pitch, with its cryptic sequences spread over 18 bolts and think ‘maybe that will go first try’ is a realm occupied by just one climber: Adam Ondra.
Just Do It is such a iconic route, bolted by Alan Watts 1989, first ascended by JB Tribout in 1992. The first 5.14c (8c+) in America, taking the middle.part of East face of Monkey Face. Extremely stoked to have done it today in the best style possible – onsight. @montura_official @blackdiamond @lasportivagram @mytendon @gardatrentino
