The route called Paco and an injured pulley

The route called Paco and an injured pulley
June 20, 2015 -  Martina

I finished my last blog talking about the new route called Paco that Nico bolted the recently discovered cliff in the Aiguilles Rouges. As soon as there was occasion (that means somebody to watch after Paco and Tommy – thanks “mamie” Nathalie and papi Dominique!) I joined Nico in »his« more than 40m high and overhanging cliff that he called »Ventilator«.

In the winter time or in the periods of rain we take advantage of every occasion to escape in the friendlier climate of the south of France. This time we spent Tommy’s April school holydays in Gorges du Verdon. 

Wild Bunch Dodo’s Delight (w/ Nico Favresse)

Wild Bunch Dodo’s Delight (w/ Nico Favresse)
April 22, 2015 -  Nicolas Favresse

Four years after Vertical Sailing Greenland, Captain Reverend Bob Shepton (79) calls the Wild Bunch (Sean Villanueva O’Driscoll, Benjamin Ditto, Olivier and Nicolas Favresse) back onto his boat for a major mission! On board of the Dodo’s Delight (a 10m sailboat) the team measures up with arctic ice, polar bears and ferocious storms, in search of the holy grail: to find unclimbed big walls and musical enlightenment. After some mouthwatering walls and tunes in Greenland, it's in Baffin Island they find big virgin walls to feed their musical inspirations propelling the group to ultimate all-new heights!" Entirely shot and...

Slacklust: Coast to Crest - Dan Krauss

Slacklust: Coast to Crest - Dan Krauss
February 20, 2015 -  Five Ten

"Man it’s cold” I thought to myself as I pulled my head out of my sleeping bag. “Is it morning yet?” No... It was still pitch black outside. I did this every hour for the entire night. David’s booming snores filled the pop-up camper on top of the van. Everything inside the tent was wet from freezing condensation. When I finally saw the frosted grass turn orange, peeking out of the tent's air vent, I begrudgingly got out of my now-ice-covered sleeping bag and pulled on my puffy jacket. My whole body shuddered as I climbed out of the...

Climbing Trip to the Mythic Cliff with Colette McInerney

Climbing Trip to the Mythic Cliff with Colette McInerney
February 04, 2015 - 

This summer came together much like most of the best things do, completely unplanned. I had been blabbing pretty insistently about a girl’s trip to Ceuse in an attempt to “put things out into the universe”, you know concentrating my “energy” and all that. But alas the trip came to fruition while the perfect limestone cliff was the last thing on my mind. Now almost 6 months later and I find myself looking back on a summer full of Ceuse memories, from the once daunting turned therapeutic hike, to the intimidating climbs now proud achievements, to the once unspoken...
