Between the two North American World Cup bouldering competitions, Adam Ondra took a break from the plastic to try some of Colorado’s outdoor test-pieces. In Wild Basin, Rocky Mountain National Park, Ondra sent White Noise (V14/15) after three or four attempts and made easy work of Bear Toss (V13) with a flash.
Daniel Woods established White Noise in 2012. Ondra claimed the fifth ascent after Matty Hong, Dave Graham and Paul Robinson.
Ondra will be competing in the IFSC Bouldering World Cup in Vail, Colorado, this weekend at the GoPro Mountain Games. Last weekend in Toronto Ondra placed third in the men’s bouldering competition.
“The competition was good; after the first two problems, it was all very well played for me,” Ondra said in an interview with Gripped Magazine after Toronto’s World Cup. [Click here to watch the full interview]
