London-Paris-Grenoble-Val Di Mello-Gothenburg: the running man odysée
It was time for a little tour: London-Paris-Grenoble (St Hilaire/Crolles)-Val Di Mello. But before that a little party at my house wich always includes bbq+loads of music.
tightly packed musicians at my tiny place in GBG
This 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 try
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.
Hampi: first days
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...
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.
Hampi a few pictures. suite
New day, new spots, and new pictures...
My skin is so bad, but I'm so happy to climb here, that I go until the blood. All the day we meet new people and we climb together on new and classic spots.
David from switzerland in " Goan curner" a classic but so nice bulder.
