Turning Dark Cave into Real Gem!

Created by: Adam Ondra

Some places don't look amazing at first glance. They might be hidden in the woods, they might be dirty, full of cobwebs, and they might require a lot of cleaning. Derava skala (The Leaky Rock) is a small dark cave that has been neglected for many years despite the first free climbing routes being developed in the 80s. I did not like it myself the first time I saw it 20 years ago. With a new perspective and much more experience, I could see much better that this cave is a real gem , and the best lines were still waiting for the first ascents!

Take a look at the new video featuring the first ascent of Hogo Fogo 9a!
