Ya hace unos meses, la empresa americana de pies de gato y zapatillas de montaña Five Ten, se intereso por mi, después de unos contactos y espera, llego el momento e hicimos oficial nuestro contrato de patrocinio, porque si algo tienen es seriedad en lo que hacen, de esta manera, junto a muchos de mis compañeros de diferentes edades y diferentes ubicaciones geográficas se ha formado un buen equipo de escaladores de la marca Five Ten.
It's been a while since my last post... but I could say the same for the last time I touched some true rocks! School, work and comps have been pretty much what I've been trough all winter cause I didn't get to travel. Fortunately, here in Montreal Sun is warming up and snow is slowly melting uncovering a fresh smell of Spring! Hope is very high for going out climbing again in the local spots in a not so distant future!
So here she is, the third installment of the 7 trailer phenomena from our upcoming film Slippery When Wet. Next up is good friend and amazing athlete Drew Duval. Duval’s humble beginnings started right here in southern California before moving to the East Coast and continuing to progress his skills there.

I went upstairs took a shower and went to bet it was about 12:30, and we were waking up at 7:00am to go out climbing.
Regional sport climbing championships 2nd round of the regionals: It was held at my local climbing wall and it was great fun! I topped both of my qualifying climbs which put me in to first place going in to the finals. The final climb was awesome and I maneged to work my way through all these dynos to get my self very close to the top but just pumping out at the end! I placed first in the under 18 category!
We are in Albarracin since two weeks now. This area is definitely one of the best spots i have ever been to. The weather get's more hot and it's getting harder for me to climb in the sandstone blocs under these conditions. I used the cooler weather the days before quite good and i sent most of the beautiful and hard lines here. Now it's getting time moving on to climb in the areas around Madrid.
