Adam Ondra attempts to onsight Absolutní vědomí (Absolute Consciousness), the first 8b+ (5.14a) in former Czechoslovakia. The route, located in Beckov, Slovakia, was originally established by Tomáš Pilka, a.k.a. the Marmot, in 1992. Fifteen meters (49 feet) of crimps and slopers lead to the most regal top-out a climber could hope for.
