In 2013 Adam Ondra set up a line at Hanhelleren Cave in Flatanger that seemed too intimidating to even climb: Project Big. Nine years after his first attempts, Adam Ondra is targeting the route again, this time together with Jakob Schubert. This video shows his first serious attempt to climb the route.
«ProjectBig Drilling in and finding out that there are effective handles was just overwhelming,” says Adam Ondra.
