Sheffield is the UK's climbing epicentre. Legends like Jerry Moffatt or Ben Moon have left their mark on the surrounding climbing areas. It is precisely this test piece that Adam Ondra uses in his homage to the 90s climbing film The Real Thing.
It's a gathering of superlatives, though Jerry Moffatt, Ben Moon and Adam Ondra meet. While Moffatt and Moon wrote climbing history in the 90s and noughties, the Czech climbing professional has shaped climbing like no other two decades later. During his trip to the United Kingdom, Adam Ondra visits their historical test pieces with Jerry Moffatt and Ben Moon - of course not without lending a hand himself.
