Kjerag - Steve Mcclure

Kjerag - Steve Mcclure
July 27, 2011 - 

The first time I set eyes on Kjerag I knew I wanted to climb it. Perhaps the world’s most famous BASE jumping cliff, this 1000m vertical wall rising straight out from the sea was just asking to be climbed. In most cases dreams like this remain dreams, with logistics, finances and life in general standing firmly in the way, but this time I had my hand held. The Norwegians are such a friendly bunch, and on-it with their organising. As soon as I said I was keen all I had to do was find a window.

This route is the stuff of legends! And climbed by the legend Johnny Dawes. Blasted into fame in the film Stone Monkey with a Zappa sound track that elevated the route above every other in the quarries. Even the simple name blatantly indicates that this isn’t just another slab or wall. This is THE masterpiece, climbing out from the biggest hole via the biggest challenges.

Ethan Pringle's 2 days in Vienna- part 2 (Saturday the 14th)
May 22, 2011 -  Ethan Pringle

I awoke on Saturday morning at a friend’s house after sleeping for about ten hours straight. Despite the long night’s sleep I still felt exhausted- the previous night’s lack of sleep had finally caught up with me. I didn’t have a key to my friend’s apartment, or the building, but I needed some food for breakfast and I didn’t want to wake him up, knowing he’d been up all night setting for the comp, so I left his front door slightly ajar and the held the lock to the door of the building open with a piece of paper...

After a month climbing at Ceuse, my legs needed a break from the hike- Party in Vienna! And I guess there was the World Cup as well. I figured since I was going to be in Europe for three months this spring that I’d consider attending one of the bouldering WC to get a sense of how strong I would need to be to do well in one in the future. Near the end of April, needing a break from the brutalities of Ceuse, I checked the competition schedule on the IFSC website and saw that there were two...

Lucky for us this is such a good cliff, as we don’t have that many world class sport venues. This isn’t Spain. But we do have a few. This is the most important confirmation Adam Ondra has made, the fact that he’s returned for a second week means he must like it here, after all, he could go anywhere in the world for sure.

I was supposed to be in Alaska for some heliskiing and photography but unfortunately the worst drought since 30 years led to a massive lack of snow and so my friends and me decided to postpone this trip to 2012. Within minutes my focus switched again from deep powder runs to bouldering. I immediately found myself back in the gym training my ass off and trying to get in shape for the long awaited Easter holidays. After a nasty sinusitis and a week of Antibiotics I only had one and a half weeks left to transform those weak finger...
