Before to talk about Hueco Tanks, I propose you a short movie about the Spanish Trip. 

Daniel Woods on his new problem, Mirror Reality

I first got word from Dave Graham in May of 2011 of a potential new project in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. The climb is located a few hundred feet past the Moraine Park turnoff, on the right hand side of the road. An obvious landmark to look for is the raging river filled with house sized boulders, running underneath the road bridge. You park in a pull out just past the bridge on the right and run a few hundred feet up the hillside into the woods.

The Zanskar Odyssey: High Alpine Bouldering in the Hidden Himalayas - PART 1/3

This past fall, Colorado climbers Pete Takeda, Abbey Smith, Jason Kehl and Mick Follari journeyed to that lofty crossroads where continents meet, ancient cultures mingle, and great religions clash — the kingdom of Zanskar in the Indian Himalayas. They were looking for adventure, a fresh perspective, and the most aesthetic boulders in the world's greatest mountain range. It's a postmodern blend of traditional expedition climbing and new school bouldering, it's a search for the highest hardest climbing moves in the world.

The Power Powder contest

Petit retour rapide et en images sur le Power Powder, un événement fort sympathique mixant ski et escalade.
Cela se passait chez nos cousins Italiens, à la Thuile d'Aoste sous l'impulsion d'un homme passionné, Moreno Dalle Molle.
L'idée n'est pas nouvelle en soi puisque les Arcs avaient déjà organisé le Trophée Ski Escalade à l'époque d'un certaine Isabelle Patissier.

Navalameca : back to the future

VIDEO - Evolution Tour - the teaser

This is the story of a child suffering from the Rubinstein-Taby syndrome. Born in Martinique in 1977 of unknown parents, Philippe has always suffered from several malformations that have restrained his freedom of movement. But his perseverance and autonomy nevertheless enabled him to follow a "normal" and successful schooling. But having access to "normality" is not everything, and encouraged by his passion for challenges, Philippe discovered climbing in 1994.
