First Ascent of The Penrose Step V14 • Carlo Traversi

First Ascent of The Penrose Step V14 • Carlo Traversi
February 18, 2014 -  Five Ten

In the fall of 2013, Five Ten Elite Athlete Carlo Traversi traveled to Leavenworth, Washington to attempt the longstanding "ladder project".  Just minutes from the main road, this impeccable shield of rock had resisted attempts for nearly a decade.  After 4 days of work, Carlo made the First Ascent of the line calling it "The Penrose Step" and giving it the grade of V14, making it the hardest boulder problem in the state of Washington.

Touching Rock After a Long Time - Christian Muench

Touching Rock After a Long Time - Christian Muench
February 17, 2014 -  Muench

I didn't get the opportunity to get outdoors for quite a while now, studying for university during the semester and learning for my exams afterwards. Now - with only one exam left - I used the opportunity of having two weeks to prepare there, to get bouldering at Kochel for a couple of times. Even though I trained a lot in the gym during wintertime, I really had some back pain after the first sessions there - such a physical style of climbing.But it feels so good to get back on the rock!!!So far, I climbed "Supercontergan" (FB 7c)...

Bishop and the Rope Season - Nick Bradley

Bishop and the Rope Season - Nick Bradley
February 15, 2014 - 

So lately I have been taking quite a few short trips out to Bishop, which has been both fun and beneficial to my bouldering ability, but holding me back from ropes. Basically I've been projecting and projecting and sending harder than ever before, but I'm struggling on finding the focus on one particular event, such as Open SCS Nationals, or bouldering hard outside. This will all level out soon enough I'm sure though... Anyway, here's some updates on what's going on:

Trippin - Episode 2 - Madeira with Mark Scott and Sam Flanagan
February 14, 2014 -  Five Ten

Madeira, Europe's lost MTB paradise? That is no longer a question, but now a statement. Madeira should be next on the hit list of your next riding destinations, everything you could ever need on one epic island. Epic trails, awesome locals, insane food and the sickest views! Trippin headed to Madeira, located just off the African coast, back in January for a joint project with Aspect Media. Not knowing much about the island or its riding scene, we were very pleasantly surprised. Hopefully you have seen Aspect's beautifully shot edit, but now it's time for what our lens captured...

Welcome to Brazil - Benjamin Rueck

Welcome to Brazil - Benjamin Rueck
February 14, 2014 - 

After about a two week rest from Africa, an opportunity to travel down to Brazil arose. Kevin Jorgenson and I were invited to go with adidas to explore and put up new lines. It was an incredible mission to go have a whirl wind experience in three or four climbing areas in South America’s largest country, as well as meet with interesting folks. The answer was fairly simple; “yep, I’ll go!”My bags were packed… I was ready to go… I had that quirky song “Leaving on a jet plane,” on my mind and as I approached the ticket counter...

I'm back in Siegen after a good time in Siurana. I'm glad to be taking the Rambla sending experience home with me. I tried it last year and I wasn't lucky. This time it went better. It was a big challenge for me, to get the endurance and to be patient.I don't like giving up when I know that I can do something. I needed to be very patient. Each time when I felt close and thought I would do it soon, something kept me from having good tries. Normally it's like that at least once or two times...
