After a long week of setting for the Dark Horse, I was hankering for some rock like a lil’ chunker aches for tootsies before bed-time. So, I went outside. At the risk of jinxing myself and my friends, I have to say that the send train as of late has been running on a seemingly endless track with the momentum of a freighter barreling towards some unknown destination. SLAY-TOWN, USA. What? Hayden Miller was able to take down Prince Paul in good form, working it from the ground up while taking a few very controlled ninja falls....
The outdoor climbing season in Vermont in dwindling. There is frost on the ground almost every morning and the mountains (where the boulders live) are getting snow, ice and/or rain a few times a week. I am sad to say the season seems to be coming to an end, for this part of Northern VT anyway. I do, however, hope to get some chances to test the winter bouldering, sans topouts and with snowshoe approaches.
Express trip to Margalef, Spain and some bouldering days in Ticino, Switzerland. During the last couple of weeks I climbed alot on the rocks. I took some day trips on the Swiss granite and I'm starting to feel on good bouldering shape again...What a great feeling! I also got something done!! A few 8a a+'s sent very fast, a few flash 7c c+'s and finally after many months without I sent a cool hard 8b in Chironico called The Crackline!

Climbing trip in FrankenJura end of October. So it will be my first post on the blog!!! Two weeks ago I had the chance to have Monday off at work ! So what best to do for a 3 days weekend? Go climbing!! At first the chosen destination was supposed to be Magic wood in Switzerland... But unfortunately the weather forecast didn't seem nice. So we had a look at the weather map and we found our destination: Frankenjura in Germany!
As promised what now seems like a long time ago, my new website is ready!!! Unfortunately there were unforeseen issues with my original domain name, jamespearsoncliming.com, which postponed the re-launch considerably. I leave for the communication black hole of Chad early tomorrow morning, so rather than make you wait even longer, a good friend of mine has kindly lent me a rather odd domain to use. Jamespearsonclimbing.com has temporarily become realbigpimp.in, so go take a look at all the new content, dressed in shiny new clothes.
