Adam Ondra and Tommy Caldwell in conversation about The Dawn Wall

In the following video, climbing greats Adam Ondra and Tommy Caldwell talk about Olympia, The Dawn Wall, the connection between sport climbing and multi-pitch climbing, and their personal plans for the future.

The two professional climbers Adam Ondra and Tommy Caldwell haven't seen each other in person for a long time. What connects the two most of all is probably the most difficult multi-pitch route in the world: The dawn wall. Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson climbed the route with its 32 pitches for the first time in 2015.

Adam Ondra tackled the route in November 2016 and secured the first repetition of the 32 pitches after about a week. In the video below, they talk about The Dawn Wall and the preparations for the Summer Olympics in Tokyo.
