The crazy week
The 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.
The 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.
Every sunrise is the sign of a new day. Here every new day means new places, new boulders, new climbs and new emotions to share. Our crew have a lots of fun, climb hard and most of all we realize how lucky and happy we are to be here.

Another view of Hampi's area... Boulders and boulders everywhere...
There's soooo much to say about our days here !
The people, the climbing, the good vibes, the skin pain and the food...
Behind the pictures I hope I could share a little of those great moments with you... (photos : Axel Ballay, Mike Fuselier)
Typical India Kids... so full of life !
After an epic story to get a new visa at the last minute we finally managed to reach India. This country is beautifull, full of colors, rich of magic landscapes and history. Indian people are very lifefull, always smiling, always nice, it's incredible.
Evrard, Vaibhav (our local guide and friend) and I went thru Hampi where we met the rest of the crew : Mike, Axel and Ju Nadiras. All of us are so lucky to be here !
I was looking since a long time to came here, inspired by the pictures I've seen before. But the reality is far better that I excpected it would be.
What's new ?
Smith Rock was a lengedary cliff for sport climbing in the late eigthies. What cimber hasn't dreamt of the line "Just do it" ? (5.14c) The First Ascent was made by JB Tribout in 1992....
"To bolt or not to be" is another really technical famous route where more than one climber has been shut down. JB did also the First Ascent in 1986... it was the first 5.14 in US...
