The Traverse of the Gods
Or the God Of all Traverses? I’m not the fittest of
climbers, but it’s not often that I turn up at a cliff and only manage one
route before crawling off exhausted! But the mega traverse at Craig-y-Longridge
is way longer than the average route!
Lucky for us this is such a good cliff, as we don’t have
that many world class sport venues. This isn’t Spain.
But we do have a few. This is the most important confirmation Adam Ondra has
made, the fact that he’s returned for a second week means he must like it here,
after all, he could go anywhere in the world for sure.
A perfect mountain
Bits of rock can look pretty much the same, it doesn’t
matter where you are in the world. Big features, crazy formations, caves,
pinnacles, whatever; up close and pulling hard, rock is rock. In a place like China
you need to escape the system and explore the view, just to know where you are,
or you might as well have stayed home!
Borre handed me another beer. The main dude behind the
Norwegian Rockmaster. The second event, in 2010, had been a good one. "Steve,
how can we make the competition even better?" I thought for a minute. "You want
something that stands out from the crowds? The way to go is DWS!"
Première au Lunak
Au mois de septembre 2010 une équipe de jeunes alpinistes s'attaque à la face Sud-Est du Jobo Rinjang Ouest ou Lunak 2, un sommet vierge de 6940
m au Népal. Récit et vidéo de cette expédition dans le Haut Kumbu avec Seb Ratel, Maxime Belleville, Mathieu Detrie et Mathieu Maynadier.
I am right now in Slovenia, in Kamnik. It is midnight, in the room, my favorite song from Lhasa who sing a song called "My Name".I am here now during 3 months and I am a bit high. In fact, I am quiet satisfy to be here for many reasons, I feel like in the laboratory where I found solutions who help me to grew up. I am like a ghost who is here like a spectator of his life. I walk step by step that i could call : Evolution/Revolution.
