Adam Ondra climbs Solitary Souls (8c +) onsight | Video

This video shows Adam Ondra's onsight ascent of the 8c+ route Solitary Souls in the Le Piazzole climbing area near Arco.

Solitary Souls is one of the few routes in Arco that he has not yet tried - and quite consciously, writes Adam Ondra. The line is absolutely amazing so he wanted to wait for the right moment to give the line a proper onsight try. Said and done. On March 12, 2022, Ondra joined the von Nico Favresse furnished and by Alfredo Webber first climbed route and clipped the deflector a little later – without falling, mind you.

The recently released video by Adam Ondra shows the solid onsight ascent and the story behind it.
