In The Wizard's Apprentice Pavlicek introduces us to the climber behind these astonishing results - a serenely quiet teenager who prepares for his march through each grade methodically, and who includes his parents in his circle of climbing friends. We also hear from Ondra's parents, who are also climbers - Ondra's mother tells Pavlicek that she taught Ondra to swear as a way to stop him crying when he failed on a route - and from rock-god Alex Huber, who puts Ondra's achievements into context. The film spans a year, and covers some very significant moments in Ondra's career. Ondra makes some spectacular sends, of course, but he also meets some hurdles - routes he can't onsight, conditions that threaten his climbing schedule, an untimely lapse in concentration - that mean his ambition and drive go unrewarded, for a short time, at least.
