“I’m basically a total beginner. It’s like a different sport,” says BD Athlete Adam Ondra. After swinging through the BD headquarters to pick up a fresh rack of redesigned C4 Camalots, Ondra drove straight to the Utah desert to try his hand(s) at the world-famous splitters of Indian Creek. First up? Supercrack of the Desert—established in 1976 by Earl Wiggins and known historically as the first line ever climbed in what’s now considered the mecca of crack climbing.
