Scary Ground-up First Ascent on Legendary Czech Sandstone

The new video is on fire! Climbing on the Czech sandstone is special, just like the local climbing scene and its ethics. The name of the game is opening the routes ground up and making big runouts between rings or bolts. Check this video while local legend Tomajda and I open a new crazy route, "Zpřítomnění" (Falling into Presence), with a desperate boulder problem on the very top of the tower. Personally, it is one of my favorite videos as it tells so much about the essence of sandstone climbing in only 12 minutes. Climbing on the Czech sandstone is like nowhere else in the world, and it is one the best I have ever seen. 
Watch the great new video on my AO YouTube channel and enjoy an ultra-light climbing shoe, Mantra by La Sportiva, dedicated to medium and high-level climbers. It allows maximum freedom of movement for fluid and engaging climbing! Stay tuned for more content and climbing FUN with La Sportiva.
