It looks like Adam Ondra isn't the only talented climber in his family. This past week, the two-time World Cup champion's older sister, Kristyna Ondrova, became the second Czech woman to climb a 5.14a route when she sent Kudlanka, near the siblings' hometown of Brno.

She may not be as well-known abroad as her brother, but 26-year-old Ondrova (her surname is the feminine form of 'Ondra') is an accomplished climber in her own right. While she's never competed in a World Cup event, Ondrova took third in the Czech Championships in 2009. Check out the video from her finals performance above.
