Hampi: first daysHi, Well, Alex, Ju and I just arrived in Hampi... Oaouh!!! It's so beautiful, but in the same time so hot: the summer season is ending. This is not the best for climbing, neither for my fingers... But anyway the landscapes are amazing, as the temples. We can only climb at night, it's a short space of time: hope it's going to be enough to make some problems. There are boulders as far as the eye can see. Liv's passport has been lost, so she's going to fly to bombay only on Sunday with Evrard. Everything is going to be OK...
Hampi tripHello, I'm in Bombai with Julien Nadiras and Axel Ballai. We've just arrived from Geneva, and we'll take a bus this evening to Hampi (about 20 hours to go...). There is a lot of poor people here, it's crasy to see that. I'll try to give you some news during my trip.
Vertik TripThis week-end was the Vertik-trip, a Belgium competition. Some climbers were invited for this challenge of ultime problems and routes. Working the morning, and ultime try in the evening in front of a crazy public. I did third for the boulder problem, and first in the route. With my total of points, I won the competition. Edu Marin was second and Gabor Szekely third. Congratulations to the organizers for this great event.
Treblinka, first tryHello, This is my first news, and I would like to speak about my last trip: The Cimaï. Two weeks ago, I did Treblinka: 8b, it's an old, but really nice route. I'm so happy I've done it, because it's a legendary route in France.
Warm-up route: Rodéo, 7a.
Film feelingsThe Outdoor Games are almost over.
It was really fun to discover the 7 team's movies, and each one made a very great job ! We are very happy with our film and I really wanted to congratulate our editing crew, managed by Guillaume Broust, for his professionalism and talent. A huge thanks to Denis, Chris, Seb and Guillaume.
The crazy weekThe action stage is over, and the whole crew had a super-great-time in such a magic place... We definitely had a crazy week, running everywhere, connecting one things after another... And it was the same for the editing crew that didn't sleep so much during the last 3 days, but they did a very professional job.
Between us, the atmosphere was really friendly, relax but efficient. Those Outdoor Games were a very strong human adventure, meeting new people, sharing time and passions all together.
