Last year, Adam Ondra visited the Drill and Chill Festival in Bosnia where he established and climbed a 5.15a/b, one of the hardest routes in the world, and also climbed Bosnia’s first 5.14d.
This short video is about Ondra bolted the two routes. “It was a big inspiration to hang out and interview this exceptional climber and a true joy to see the potential of this place celebrated this way,” said filmmaker Sebastian Wahlhuetter.

Last autumn I spent a lot of time in Balkan countries. They are not very well known for climbing destinations, yet it does not mean that climbing is bad. It is just fantastic and I am glad this film really captures not only fantastic climbing but also vibes in these countries in general. Every country is different, yet in every country, I felt so good and welcome. Balkan Notes takes you to Bosnia, Croatia, Macedonia and Albania. Who likes numbers, you can watch FA of two 9a+/b's, as well as onsight of multipitch 8c. Thanks, @blackdiamond and all others who made this happen. I am really happy with the result.
