This climbing pro is coach of Adam Ondra: Patxi Usobiaga

Today's edition of the video series Road to Tokyo shows how it came that the Basque professional climber Patxi Usobiaga coach of the currently best climber in the world, Adam Ondra, was.

About ten years ago delivered Patxi Usobiaga and at that time still very young Adam Ondra regularly a neck-and-neck race. In the year 2013, their relationship with each other changed completely. Adam Ondrawho was not specifically training until then, was looking for a trainer and asked Patxi at a meeting in Margalef if he would coach him.

"He's the only one I trust completely."
