My vacation started off this year with a roadtrip from Moab to California. Late as usual, I charge through the night. I make it to Reno by the next morning and push onto NorCal by the evening. The next two weeks I'm going to be training skydiving on my tracking suit and wingsuit for Europe. So excited and nervous to take my sky flying to the cliffs of Italy and Switzerland.

My month and half trip in South America it has been fantastic so far. I got to climb Alpamayo which it is 19,511 foot located in the Cordillera blanca in Northen Peru.

The whole journey to get up and down that mountain took us 16 days with the help of Burros and porters. All and all a fantastic expedition. I'm heading next to spend couple of weeks in Colombia rock climbing and having great time.
Here is a short video of my trip to Fontainebleau in Spring 2013. Enjoy some impressions of this beautliful place. Fontainbleau for me is just one of the best climbing spots in the world and Easter this year, I had the great opportunity to spend a perfect holiday there with nice people and the best conditions you can imagine. Thanks a lot to Moritz Thon, Andre Wagner and Matt Maisak for this awesome trip!!!
