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...
First 8b+ on sight
Last week, I went with the french team to Cuenca (Spain), for a training course.
The goal of this training course was to try hard routes on sight. We had bad luck, because it rained 4 days in the week, so we climbed under the rain, in the wind and the cold... It was really sticky.
Version du trip à la française.
A l'occasion de la sortie du sweetspot de Nike ACG sur notre trip en Chine, je vous fais une petite news.
Nike ACG a lancé un mode de communication original. En effet, le but est de réaliser des sweetspots aux quatres coins du globe sur les différents riders du team, pour présenter les différents produits que la marque distribue.
Back to the last few weeks...
The last past weeks were very busy and fantabulous ! Now I'm back to my sweet place, enjoying life, ski as the snow just felt and training on plastic... But the great feelings and memories of the last few weeks are still very omnipresent in my minds...
To conclude Hampi trip
Hampi is really the sanctuary of rock climbing. You can see boulders on 360°, this is an amazing landscape.
Everybody is friendly and curious, it's funny when they ask why we wear those mats for going climbing. Poverty is omnipresent, and we can always see any bare children on the dirty ground.
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 !
