Watch Matty Hong Climb 5.15s in Spain

When Matty Hong sets out to accomplish something, like sending two 5.15a routes in Spain, there’s nothing that can stop him from attaining his goal.

During his spring trip to Spain, Hong applied himself to no end to make quick work of La Rambla in Siurana and Joe Mama in Oliana. Watch below.

In a 2015, Hong did an interview with Moga Gear, where he said that his parents Steve Hong and Karin Budding introduced him to climbing at a young age.

“Both are still active climbers and my most consistent partners. I don’t remember when I started climbing, similar to how I don’t remember my first steps, but I know it’s always been a big part of my life and who I am.”

At the time, Hong had not climbed 5.15 and to the question “if you could give one piece of advice to a v15/5.15 crusher, what would it be?’ He said, “Check your ego; make sure you’re still having fun.”
