Some climbing areas and routes look terrible at first glance, but are actually better than expected. One of these areas is Derava skala in Slovakia. In this video, Adam Ondra shows how he changed his mind about the area.
Humid air, moss and spider webs at every nook and cranny. This is how you can imagine the climbing area Derava skala (The Leaky Rock). Twenty years ago was Adam Ondra climbing in the area for the first time and, as expected, was not impressed by the area.
He was recently drawn back to the area, with a "new perspective" and more experience, he suddenly recognized the potential of the area and opened the 9a route Hogo Fogo.
