We invite you to the 14th edition of Expedition Camera. Five adventure films where lovers of mountaineering, mountain biking, hiking and travelling will surely come into their own. ✨
🧗 The main blockbuster will be the new film with Adam Ondra, one of the best climbers of today, together with his follower, only 15 year old Pepa Sindel. The latter climbed a 9a+ difficulty route in 2022, the first at the age of 15. And their goal? To climb one of the hardest rock routes in Slovakia.
⛷️Okrem heights with Adam Ondra, we will also experience the sensation of powder skiing, the adrenaline rush of unicycling and cycling in Canada, we’ll do a fast-climb in Italy and cycling in Norway, and together we’ll get a glimpse into one of the most remote and least explored areas of our planet, the Peruvian-Brazilian Amazon.

Czech climber Adam Ondra is considered one of the best climbers of our time, ranked among the world’s top ten climbers on difficulty since he was twelve years old. And it looks like young Pepa Šindel is following in Adam’s footsteps. In 2022, he climbed a route in 9a+ difficulty, and he was only 15 years old! No one else in the world could have managed such a difficulty at such a young age except the two of them. The Shingle family spends a good part of the year on the road in their van, and this time they come to the Krpcovo area. Here, an extraordinary encounter between Pepa and Adam occurs. Their goal? To climb one of the most difficult rock routes in Slovakia.
