“I would like to take a look at it”

Adam Ondra, in an interview with Squamish Climbing Magazine about his thoughts on Yosemite and the Dawn Wall:

Yes, I feel ashamed that I have never been to Yosemite, and this climb is something that make my fingers sweaty! I don’t say this year, but in the future I would like to take a look at it.

Just a look?

Adam Ondra Climbs His 100th 5.14d Or Harder

Finally.

Other than the sheer absurdity of the number, what I find most interesting about this is that Ondra did his first 5.14d way back in 2006 when he was just 13.  Since then a number of incredible young climbers have come along – Enzo Oddo, Ashima Shiraishi, Mirko Caballero  to name just a few – but Ondra’s record in all aspects of climbing is really unmatched.  Incredible.

“I kind of know how to climb”

Adam Ondra, in an interview with Evening Sends:

For me, however, it takes less time to adapt [to bouldering] because I have climbed many kilometers of rock in my life—on all kinds rock and different angles. I don’t want to boast, but I think I kind of know how to climb. Anywhere, anything.

Understatement of the year?  Good interview.
