Age of Ondra

Every so often an athlete comes along who redefines their sport. Adam Ondra, the 25-year-old Czech crusher, is exploring a new realm of human potential in climbing. Late last year, he established a benchmark for the sport: a 5.15d in Norway he dubbed Silence. On the heels of this ascent, Age of Ondrafollows Adam as he innovates new training methods, establishes upper echelon first ascents and attempts to be the first person to send 5.15 on the first try. A rare, intimate journey with one of the greatest athletes at the peak of his powers.

Directed by: Big UP Productions / Featuring: Adam Ondra

Up to Speed

When climbing was announced as part of the 2020 Olympics, it was a monumental occasion for the sport. But many climbers were shocked to learn that one of three combined events required to compete for a medal is… speed climbing. 

Reel Rock correspondent Zachary Barr looks into this little-known and seldom practised subdiscipline of the sport, and the role it will play in shaping climbing's future. Barr's journey from the US to France (the birthplace of modern speed climbing) to South Asia (it's actually huge there) culminates at an international competition in Moscow, where speed demons race up a 15-meter wall in under six seconds.

The Valley of the Moon

Wadi Rum, known as the Valley of the Moon, is a vast landscape of sandstone walls in the Jordan desert. Hoping to lure international climbers, two Israelis team up with a local Bedouin guide to establish an 1,800-foot route, eventually recruiting American climber Madaleine Sorkin to help achieve their dream. The Valley of the Moon explores the importance of climbing as a way to cross cultural barriers, build friendship and chase adventure in one of the most breath-taking regions on earth.

Directed by: Henna Taylor / Featuring: Madaleine Sorkin, Eliav Nissan, Mohammad Hussein, Elad Omer

Queen Maud Land

A dream team of six elite climbers mount an expedition to one of the world's last great climbing frontiers: the remote frozen towers of Antarctica. Jimmy Chin and Conrad Anker tackle a new route on the 3,600-foot Ulvetanna; Savannah Cummins and Anna Pfaff summit the towering Holtanna; and Alex Honnold and Cedar Wright make a harrowing and hilarious blitz of 13 different spires spread across the ice field, including one pitch that Honnold calls “the scariest I have ever led.” Queen Maud Land, the name of this icy region, showcases a stunning, rarely visited wilderness, and the suffering and vision needed to climb at the bottom of the world.

Directed by: Taylor Keating and Cedar Wright / Featuring: Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin, Savannah Cummins, Alex Honnold, Anna Pfaff, Cedar Wright
