MYO headlamps and AA/LR6 rechargeable batteries
Due to advances in the performance characteristics of AA/LR6 rechargeable batteries (especially their higher output during discharge), they can in certain cases of intensive use, cause quality and safety problems with MYO-series headlamps. When the headlamp is used with AA/LR6 rechargeable batteries, if a short-circuit appears in the cable connecting the battery case to the lamp, the cable can spark, melt, or catch fire. This poses a burn hazard to the user.
From Boulder to the Red
So, I'm in the middle of a flashback right now-first climbing in Boulder, Colorado and then the Red in Kentucky, just the same as last fall.
As allways in Boulder I stayed with my friend Christian "Verve" Griffith and climbed with both new and old friends. Some people I would now later join up with here in the Red -Tony and Isa, Lynn, Abbey, Jason, Melissa, Dave...
Veterans Christina Griffith and Lynn Hill knows teamwork is the way forward, mt Evans.
Rudeboy RockAfter 2 days of resting my leg and hoping for it to heal a little bit it was time to climb. But not only that, it was also the main day of the event -first the "flash rally" and then the big party!
I managed to walk up to the "Motherload" and found it packed with people. I teamede up with Steve and started warming up. The leg felt ok in all moves but highstepping and heelhooking. Ok, that'll do...

The deep fried south
We moved on further south, me and a bunch of froggies (Tony, Isa, Lafouche, Erwan, Guillaume, Gérome, Fred, etc). Our main target was the mythical bouldering around Chattanooga, Tennessee. First up was the Lilly boulders. Maybe not the best place ever but totally ok as a little break on our way.
Back to the roots
Back in Sweden again after yet another trip. It's pretty crazy how these days I don't eaven feel as I've been away when I get back home. Anyway, back I was and it felt pretty good. The season is at it's best right now and the forests are really beautiful with all the wild colours.
I ended up staying a bit longer in Sweden then I had planned, mainly because I had to fix my car. I didn´t mind though, did a bunch of concerts, the conditions for climbing were good+I had more time to spend with my family. Anyways. Right when the car was fixed it was time to move on. I had planned to do the 25 hours+ drive to Catalunya my self.
I´ve been around here for a while now. There is not much to say than what I dicovered several years ago (and many others with me) -this is THE place for climbing. The areas around Lleida has it all. Now staying with Dani and climbing a muerte day after day, these photos sum up some of the latest weeks of activity...
