After a week in Margalef, where I did the beautiful "Bumaye" (8c+), back to France to realize my project : "Steppe de pierres", 9a. Last week with my girlfriends and some friends we went to Spain : Margalef. First days were top to climb, but weather forces us to go back to France on Friday. But motivation was there and I could top out "Bumaye", short powerful 8c+, right version of the Sharma project "first round first minute". Some photos of the route are here.
It was just announced that Team Geronimo Pro racer Michael Buell has been selected to represent the USA at the 2011 Pan Am Continental Championships in Columbia. We're incredibly excited about this opportunity.

After the world’s best start to a ski season pounded Squaw Valley with snow from mid November to New Years, a week of skiing in Juneau, Alaska, and two competition stops of the Freeride World Tour in Europe, I checked the weather and found that East winds were blasting at home and the weather was calm and windless in South Africa. I called Swiss Airlines, and changed my ticket to fly from Zurich to Cape Town, in order to visit a place very special to my friend and fellow fun jumper, Julian Boulle.
