Adam Ondra made the first ascent of Bohemian Rhapsody 5.15a last week in Roviste, Czech Republic. He graded it 5.15a, the hardest in the area.
“I have spent the last two weeks climbing in the local gyms,” said Ondra, “and climbing around here. The situation is quite good even if you cannot travel abroad for now, so I have concentrated on areas that I haven’t seen in years. Roviště is a beautiful place, near the Vltava river, which I have frequented for many years as a child.”
After covid-19 isolation ended for Ondra, he made quick work of: Captain Marvel 5.14a, Louis Je Master 5.14b, Nesmrtelny Bond 5.14b and Iceberg 5.14c.

Understandably, I just had to return back to Roviště and finish the big project. As you could see in last week's episode, I got quite close, falling off in the last hard move before the route gets easier, but there is still one more 7C+ boulderproblem guarding the anchor. To make things more dramatic, conditions were not ideal with continuous rain showers throughout the whole day. Check out the epic circumstances while finally making the first ascent of Bohemian Rhapsody, the hardest route in Bohemia.
