5.14 First Ascents in Guadalacazar - Urs Moosmuller

5.14 First Ascents in Guadalacazar - Urs Moosmuller
October 14, 2013 - 

The next cave we visited is a massive 80m cave deep in the wilderness surrounding Guadalacazar. The cave holds the largest amount of routes and some of the best. The bottom of the cave is filled with hundreds of stalagtites ranging from very small stalagtites to massive 4m long stalagtites. Just seeing this impressive natural phenomenon is a unique experience. At the deepest part of the cave you can find inscriptions from the local people dating back to the 1800’s. The cave was originally used for ceremonial purposes for the recently deceased, but now sees very little attention and...

The Small Victories Can Be The Most Important - Kegan Minock

As I was talking about in my last blog post, I have been chasing the elusive garden project. My last entry ended with hope of success during the following day. That was not the case. I was once again shut down on the same move that had stumped me during my first session. I decided that it was my beta that was not working and tried a few other possible sequences.Once midday rolled around, it became way to hot for me to be able to hold the fat pinch, let alone cut feet and swing out. Sitting impatiently under...

Back in the Hood - Tim Rose

Back in the Hood - Tim Rose
October 11, 2013 -  Tim Rose

Perfect conditions prefaced my rainy arrival in the New River Gorge. Plink... Plink..... Plink... rain danced down the tin roof and onto an empty porch that otherwise would have been occupied by the fold that had taken refuge inside. Many a day has been spent watching the weather slowly melt down the slopes of the gorge and saturate every exposed surface. "Yup" I yawned and stretched. "No hurry to get out today", steam fogged my glasses as I took another sip of coffee. And that's about how it went for the...

Mayan Smith-Gobat - National Park Closure....
October 09, 2013 - 

“What the… ?!? The government can’t actually do that, can they…”But it turns out they can… And they have!The first I heard about the National Parks (including Yosemite) being shutdown was from some fellow climbers on the Nose, while Sean and I were simul-climbing past them… And this was just a several second snippet of conversation – I just laughed and definitely did not believe would ever happen. However, we passed 11 other parties of climbers on the Nose that day – Way more that either of us had ever seen on one route ever before! Everyone had...

Magic Wood - Giovanni Cevio Traversi
October 09, 2013 -  Giovanni

I am in Magic Wood, Switzerland! I can't tell you all how psyched i am to be here! This place is incredible! The town of Ausserferrera is by far one of the most beautiful places i have ever been in my life. The forest is so amazing here and the boulders are unforgiving. I have managed to, in a weeks worth of climbing, completely thrash my middle and ring finger tip on my left hand. This does not make me happy, but what are you gonna do? Life can't always go as planned. Luckily I can still climb, I...

Climbing in Guadalcazar, Mexico - Urs Moosmuller

Climbing in Guadalcazar, Mexico - Urs Moosmuller
October 07, 2013 - 

Guadalacazar is a small farming town located an hour north of San Louis Potosi in central Mexico. The climbing consists of perfect limestone varying from bullet hard blue vertical walls to massive stalagtite filled caves of white limestone. On first arriving into the town there is no sign of any climbing and it looks like so many small towns in central Mexico with rolling hills vacant of any rock formations. Then on further inspection you find massive caves in the center of holes in the ground. All the caves are underground with light shinning through the openings. It is...
