If anyone has the qualifications to call a route the toughest in its category, it’s the world’s most accomplished climber.

Adam Ondra can’t stop, won’t stop. Still a couple of years shy of his 30th birthday, the Czech crusher has sent more 5.15+ sport climbs than any of his contemporaries by orders of magnitude. In so doing, Ondra has single-handedly redefined our notion of what’s possible.

This March, he bagged the first ascent of Italy’s hardest rock climb, “Wonderland,” 5.15b/c, and proclaimed it one of his “proudest first ascents.”

This brief documentary from Mammut follows Ondra as he projects the prize line. So, kick back and press play — beta burns, broken holds, some rebolting, one very fussy tufa, and a historic redpoint await.

Runtime: 21 minutes
