Adam Ondra Talks About Sending Silence 5.15d

Watch epic footage of the world's hardest sport climb

Adam Ondra answers some of the most frequent questions he’s gotten about his route Silence, the first 5.15d ever climbed, which he sent back in 2017.

“The strangest moves are on the V15 crux one, which is very physical, but the most precision-demanding climbing I have ever seen in my life,” said Ondra after the first ascent.

“It is very hard to turn upside down, ‘stab’ my left foot super high into the crack, doing it 100 per cent precisely, finish the sequence with this foot jam, doing the last move while doing the most extreme drop-knee I have ever done, which feel like it would tear my knee and back apart.”
