Roctrip Zillertal - the video
The movie of the Roctrip Zillertal [26mn].
Inside the Team... with many interviews, but also pure action shots in rock climbing & bouldering. Team Petzl took RocTrip to the granite wonderland of Zillertal, Austria
the summer of 2008.
The international star power was unrivaled, with
the best climbers from Spain, USA, Sweden, France, Canada, Great-Britain, the
Netherlands and Iran all throwing themselves at the boulders and cliffs
of this magical valley.
Ueli Steck : New record on the Matterhorn
Ueli Steck finds himself in perfect physical conditions. For the past few weeks, the weather in the Alps has been beautiful and the conditions on the great Northfaces in the Alps have been great . After Ueli Steck's speed record on the Grandes Jorasses over the Colton-Macintyre route, it was very likely, that he was also going to try to establish a new speed record on the Matterhorn. Although in 2006 Ueli set up a new record on the difficult Bonatti
route in 25 hours, this time he would try to break the record on the
classic Schmid route on the Matterhorn Northface.

Scottish Ice Trip - Day 3
For what seems forever will this thaw ever come to an end?
After waiting with excitement for the last couple of months for the guys to arrive, all seems to be falling apart... Wanting so much to show people how good Scottish winter climbing can be things are off to a slow wet start.
Scottish Ice Trip - Day 7
The all white day...
It was a promising sight when I first peered out of the window this morning. Beyond the wet glass and besides a constant tapping of the rain, the mountains across the bay were covered in snow. Well, the temperature decided to drop at last. Our destination in the Glen Coe range was about two-hour walk away. But as I tried to catch as much as a glimpse of where we were heading, all I could actually see was a decently steep and long snow slope ahead of us, disappearing into white.
