Adam Ondra is back on our weekly video feature with more dancing and an onsight attempt of Solitary Souls 8c+, a route bolted by Nico Favresse and first ascented by Alfredo Webber at Le Piazzole, a smaller crag in Italy’s Arco region. The route is the obvious, 35 metre central line of the crag that looks as beautiful as it does intimidatingly long.
Adam delivers his intro to camera like he’s presenting a BBC documentary, totally at ease on camera, speaking with the same composure that he shows on the wall where he makes an 8c+ onsight attempt look like a warm up. An astonishing 11 years after his first 8c+ onsight, Adam dispatches this one comfortably. With Adam’s commentary running in tandem with the send footage, we’re given a special insight into his thought process on the route and the reality of the route compared to his imagination. This one looks like a walk in the park but it’s nothing short of world class, enjoy!
