The Nightmare Before Sendmas (Hopefully!!!) - Erica Carlson

The Nightmare Before Sendmas (Hopefully!!!) - Erica Carlson
November 27, 2014 -  Erica Carlson

About a week ago, we had the first Alberta Climbing Association (ACA) comp of the year and it was hosted by my home gym, Calgary Climbing Centre. These comps are always a blast and are very well organized. Simon, the manager of the south location, has been hosting comps for 10+ years and has ironed out pretty much all the kinks you can have in a competition. This competition consistently runs on time, which is testimony to the level of organization they have. Unfortunately, this is the first time in over 6 years that I was not...

Jeté du Canard V11, Gatineau park in Luskville - Hans Christian Montenegro

Jeté du Canard V11, Gatineau park in Luskville - Hans Christian Montenegro
October 22, 2014 - 

Here you are, the V11 Jeté du Canard boulder from the Gatineau park in Luskville. There are a few repetitions for this boulder because it is hard to do and hard to find. You have to walk at least 40 minutes trekking up a mountain with yours crash pads. The first ascent proposed a v11 then, two people did it. They have proposed a v10. I propose a V11. I think we need more repetitions for getting a consensus. The problem looks easy but is very hard for short people. Actually, short people have to use very...

The Toymaker PEÑOLES 2013-2014 - Diego Lopez Montull

Going to Peñoles always gets me motivated because it's safe to say that it's one of the places I've been going to the most, and the amount of projects accumulating grows. Each year more and more people show up and it looks like this year won't be the exception. A lot of climbers, many of which are very good friends, have plans for coming. You could say this area was my high school and university, to which I've put a lot of time and effort into.

Halloween Boulder Session in the Witches' Village - Alessandro Penna

Halloween Boulder Session in the Witches' Village - Alessandro Penna
November 04, 2013 -  Alessandro Penna

Finally, three days off work! We have a look at the weather forecasts and we finally choose the only sunny place in Italy.. Triora, the witches' village! I've been there climbing so many years ago that I actually didn't remember so well the boulder quality of many lines.... but it has been brought back to life with the new Varazze bouldering guidebook by Christian Core, so I decide to have a new exploration to this area. The spot is so and so, in a dry riverbed, with a lot of vegetation... but the rock is so smooth, some...

The Ghost Ship 8B+/V14 FA in Champorcher - Niccolò Ceria

The Ghost Ship 8B+/V14 FA in Champorcher - Niccolò Ceria
May 28, 2013 -  Niccolò Ceria

The arrival of spring is often associated with hard times to climb in good bouldering spots like Ticino and many others. For April, May and June I think there are still good areas where it is possible to climb with cold and to keep the motivation high to bear the summer's arrival in the lower lands. For this season, the spots where I would have liked to go were Val Bavona, Barbara refuge, Fionnay and Champorcher.As always happen, it is really hard visiting all these places before the vernal temperature becomes summer. So I opted to climb in two...

"The Crackline" 8B and "Tai Lung" 8A+ - Niccolò Ceria

Hi! As I previously wrote on February the 10th, these last weeks has been set for a period of Pan gullich and it was fine devoting twice per week to this kind of training which is probably my favorite one. With the new holds assembled at the end of January, I can train more campus moves than in the previous sessions, In fact I was motivated to start. I usually did eight exercises for each session using four different holds. Every exercises was repeated for three times for each arms, resting 30 seconds for the change of arm. Between...
