Can I Onsight All Hard Routes in Soyhiéres During One Afternoon?

Created by: Adam Ondra

Can I onsight all hard routes in Soyhiéres (Switzerland) during one afternoon? Let's find out in a brand new rock-climbing video on my YouTube channel.

I was lucky to have Katy Choong as a guide. She is the local climber here and grew up climbing in this crag. Soyhières is one of the crags that I have wanted to visit for a long time. It is the southern tip of Basel Jura—a larger area where I climbed many years ago. Most of the routes in Basel Jura are rather short, fingery, savage, but Soyhières has some longer and pumpier routes. 

The goal was to sample some of the hard classics, and try to onsight all of them. I saved some of the routes from the 9th grade for another trip. There is also some potential for more bolting (maybe even cracks).

So watch the new video with Katherine Choong, my teammate from Mammut, on my YouTube channel and let me know in the comments which onsight you liked the most!
