Road to Tokyo #47: The Best Boulder Ever Built


“South of my hometown Brno, the land is mostly flat without any rock to climb. But once you open your mind and eyes, you can find true hidden gems to climb. The next Road to Tokyo episode is about this magnificent arete which was firstly ascended by pastor Ivo David in 2002 and was waiting for the second ascent. It is definitely the hardest boulder problem I have ever done in approach shoes.

Note: Believe it or not, I think it is easier to climb this arete with good and sticky approach shoes than climbing shoes. Ivo did it in climbing shoes though.” —Adam Ondra
