Adam Ondra climbs 8c onsight while filming at Gimmelwald

After a stay in Romania Adam Ondra spent a few days in the sports climbing area Gimmelwald in the Bernese Oberland. The reason for his visit was sometimes a film shoot for the next EOFT movie tour.

Adam says euphorically: "Gimmelwald is one of the most aesthetic places I have climbed." During his stay, the Czech managed the onsight ascent of the 8c route under constant observation of numerous cameras Goldfinger, Also on the radar of Adam was the extension of the route Renardo Rules (8c), which is probably in the ninth grade of the French.
