Weak go home

Reaching the new 'super crag' above the Spanish town of Oliana the first thing you see is a huge tufa, like a fat drainpipe of poured grey concrete stretching down from the summit. Automatically you see the weakness, finding the link between the ground and the top. You want to get up this cliff and this is the way!

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.

Link - ups: do they count for much?

Not really, but does anything in our sport really make sense? We look for the hardest way up the wall, then try and find the easiest way up it! Link-ups are fun for training, though often make two OK routes into one really good one.

Wet or What!

Chris Sharma's strategic strike of Maple Canyon

Sharma onsights two 5.14b's and more...

Chris Sharma, fresh off his recent standard-setting send of Jumbo Love (5.15b) at Clark Mountain, made a weekend stopover in Maple Canyon, Utah on his way to Mill Creek.

He went directly to the Pipe Dream, a massive cave capped by a huge 70-foot roof and known for technical horizontal climbing on Maple's signature cobbles, and onsighted T-Rex, one of the three 5.14b's in the cave.
