As part of his video series, Adam Ondra shows how important route memory is in competitions and for rock climbing.

When climbing, studying movement sequences and mental preparation can make a big difference. In this case, one speaks of visualization, a technique that significantly helped Adam Ondra climb the first 9c route in the world. But he also uses the technology in competitions.
