The last weekend, I've been in Ax les Thermes, this is a nice little city in the french pyrenees. I was there for the film festival 'Explos'.
During the four day's there were a lot of good film presentations each evening and even during the day.
For my part, I've been invited for two films: Friday night Laurent Triay was presenting for the first time his film 'Ultime démence'. His film was a documentation about me and my first female ascent of the multi pitch route he bolted by himself in the gorge of Verdon. Then, saturday night I've been on stage together with Julien Nadiras and Vladimir Cellier for the Argentinia film 'Tuzgle'.
This film is really like a work of art. I advice to everyone to telecharge this film on www.barakafilms.com, because it is defently not a standart climbing film, it's an advanturejourney...
Beside watching films, we've had a good climbing day in Génat together with the whole group: Lafouche, Laurent, Juju, Vladimir, Mariona and Cédric.
Cédric made a quick sent of an 8c, on his second go, and he flashed an 8b+. Not bad at all!
For my part, I've had a weight training on an ultra physique 8b because I was falling four times in it! ;-)
These four days in Ax les Thermes were exactely what I needed after the hard multipitch sent in Sardinia: Tranquillo, tranquillo and fiesta, fiesta...
Thank's a lot to Phil Bence and his crew, the event was super good organised and I really enjoyed to be part of the festival!
