Steve McClure's Rehab Update

Steve McClure's Rehab Update
October 09, 2010 - 

September and October are my favorite months. The air is clear and the temperatures start to drop and everything looks a little more beautiful. And friction goes up and all those little holds feel so much better. But little holds are still feeling pretty bad. Three months in to a projected six month recovery from a finger ligament rip I still feel pain even looking at a Ravenstor crimp! So best plan is to run away. France in late September is still like the UK in Summer, and I figured being on a family holiday would distract...

Diego Montull Spends 3 Months in Mexico City and Taxco

Diego Montull Spends 3 Months in Mexico City and Taxco
October 09, 2010 - 

During the last three months in Mexico City I have been training from 6 to 7 hours a day, and when the weather of the summer allowed it I bolted some routes at El Chonta, close to Taxco, in the state of Guerrero, at the Chanchuyo sector. This is a very large cave, full of limestone tufas and stalactites, which makes climbing style very particular.

Do You Want to be a Part of my Gang by Simone Pedeferri

Do You Want to be a Part of my Gang by Simone Pedeferri
October 08, 2010 -  Five Ten

I turn on my headtorch, it's got late today up on the rock face. Or perhaps I wanted it to get late, just like I wanted to experience a large part of this vertical adventure alone. The moon rises behind the Disgrazia rock face, beautiful, full and imposing like in a Kubrik film. I switch off the torch and descend the final 50m of fixed rope in the silver light of the moon. Not far from here lies Civilisation, but I want to sleep at the base of this wall because my body, after 14 hours of climbing, is...

Colette McInerney's Take on the New Anasazi Arrowheads

Colette McInerney's Take on the New Anasazi Arrowheads
October 08, 2010 -  Colette McInerney

I’ve found I’m best at blogging about all the things that surround climbing and not so much the actual things pertaining to the act itself. Beta, sends, spray and even equipment are usually the last thing on my mind when I think climbing jive. My brain always turns to the more social aspects of the sport, like how my life is relating with climbing at the moment, the places it takes me, and the people I meet. More recently I found myself gear heading it with the best after I received a pair of spanking Five Ten...

Simone Pedeferri Completes FA of Quello che non c’è 8c+

Simone Pedeferri Completes FA of Quello che non c’è 8c+
October 08, 2010 -  Five Ten

Featured on Planet Mountain: "I've got a picture in my mind of a young boy's pure joy in reaching the belay on a new route. October 2009, a wet and humid day, the notes of "Quello che non c'è" sung by the AFTER HOURS drone out of my cd player, my eyes observe Sasso Remenno slowly getting wet, but beneath the north face the water isn't seeping so, like a child with a pistol, I search for holds to ascend the 50m wall since, as the song goes "at times what seems like dawn isn't".

Carlo Traversi Spends a Week in Magic Wood

Carlo Traversi Spends a Week in Magic Wood
October 08, 2010 -  Carlo Traversi

I completed one of my projects in Magic Wood, CH yesterday.  It is called The Never Ending Story and it's rated V14. I worked on it for about 3 days, and can honestly say it's one of the harder things that I've ever completed and certainly one of the best.
