Tough Enough - scalata estrema in MadagascarTough Enough, tradotto significa "Sufficientemente Difficile"...
Tough Enough è il nome di una grande via estrema lunga 400 metri nel cuore della valle di Tsaranoro in Madagascar.
Nel giugno 2008 Arnaud Petit, Stéphanie Bodet, Sylvain Millet et Laurent Triay partono con un solo obiettivo nella testa: liberare le 10 lunghezze di ottavo grado di questa bigwall africana.
Long Routes - Petzl Team extend themselvesThe Petzl Roc trips get better and better, bigger and bigger. This year was no exception, with single pitch routes 100m long, I don't think they get any longer. I was invited again, obviously as the token Brit, there for dry humour and poor dress sense and perhaps because I've won a few trips, even up against the likes of Sharma and Andrada. Fortunately they hadn't spotted it was clearly either a fluke or involved some serious cunning. On performance alone I think I'd be lucky to scrape in!
Summit success for Ueli Steck at Gasherbrum IIFriday, July 3 2009 - Gasherbrum base camp:
It is running quite good here. From Tuesday until Wednesday I was
already for the second time at camp 2 at 6500 meters. Overnight. The
weather was pretty bad. Nicole, my wife, descended from camp 1 back to
Base Camp with two Pakistani.
