It’s that time of year again. The time when everyone in the climbing industry strolls into Salt Lake City. And I am no exception. I love the chance to see friends and meet new people. OR is a crazy event which is a great time every year. I was planning on competing at the OR competition but a sprained ankle got in the way. I know it sounds like a huge set back but really my ankle will be fine.
Five Ten® climber Sebastien Lazure has been crushing the boulders in Rockland, South Africa. In the last couple weeks he climbed 10 V10s (3 flashed), 6 V11s, 2 V12s and a V13. He is presently 2nd on www.8A.nu for bouldering in Canada.
I have been in Rocklands, South Africa for just about three weeks now. The weather has been quite back and forth from hot to cold to rainy and most everywhere in between. Fortunately, I have had quite a few fair weathered climbing days over the past few weeks to keep my complaining to a minimum.

At the beginning my idea was to deliver the supplies that I’ve brought to the Hushe kids, but after I’ve been invited to stay on Kanday village for a few days, I realized that this village have less support than Hushe, since it’s a place that most of the expeditions pass without even stop. Kanday is the last village before Hushe, with near 160 habitants split between the old and new zone, since half of the village was destroyed by a giant rock fall in the year of 2000.
