Weekend Stoker: Ondra Sending Eagle 4 5.15b

Adam Ondra made the first ascent of Eagle 4 at Saint Léger du Ventoux in France earlier this year and graded it 5.15b.

Like on many of his hardest routes, Ondra makes a number of ACL-blowing drop knees, displaying his incredible flexibility while pushing hard through his legs to take enough weight off his arms so he can move them up.

“Today, it was dry, I felt strong, made through the hard part and fell five metres from the anchor from totally easy terrain,” said Ondra after his send. “Luckily, I could do it even second time in the late afternoon.”
