Pangaea: The Adventure continuesThe Pangaea expedition to the Kamchatka region of Russia has ended. Despite some sketchy weather, the young explorers managed to take full advantage of their expedition's final days. The team shared some unforgettable moments with a group of dogsledders and their dogs, climbed a volcano and enjoyed soaking in the hot springs in Petropavlovsk, the capital of Kamchatka.

I know, this is in a way, a pretty boring performance post...The year, as we on the so called earth (and in the s.c. "west") call it, is coming to it's end. For me it means the end of a cycle and soon the beginning of a new one. The climbing cycle. I usually take 2-4 weeks of, in the end of the year, from climbing to recover 100% and then start the training for the new season. But after climbing just so much this year I still felt I wanted more. As I already started to feel tired from all the climbing this year I put in a last effort to try to do one more route.
Pangaea: the Russian expedition has leftThe six young explorers selected for the Pangaea expedition to Russia have set off on the adventure of a lifetime. Following the Selection Camp in Switzerland the young explorers returned home to finalize last minute details as a unique journey into the dry, volcanic region of Russia awaited them. On the day of their departure they met Mike Horn for the first time and together they will share their discoveries and encounters with the Siberian people in Kamchatka.
Cuba. Grimpe et découverte...Il y a énormément de choses à raconter sur Cuba.
On a vécu des aventures uniques: bartasses à travers la jungle, moustiques, guêpes, chaleur et moiteur…
On a grimpé sur des concrétions incroyables, découvert des spots peu
communs, fumé les meilleurs cigares qui soient et pour sure, dégusté le
meilleur café du monde …
Les rencontres étaient très enrichissantes, les paysages magnifiques et les ambiances à vivre !!
