Autumns Fruits - Andrea Cartas
December 05, 2014 -  Andrea Cartas

Near Madrid there's a crag called Fin del Mundo (End of the world) with exigent routes, not as easy and confortable as Catalunya ones, powerfull and long moves only adapted to tall climbers and crimpy lovers. There I did an excelent 8a+, just few tries to link long reaches and dinamics moves included a crazy jump to a shoulder, could be 8b in Catalunya easily. Then i travell again to one of my favourite crags, Jaen, were tufas style prevail and were I did easily an 50m 8b. A crazy overhang with tufas and a...

Boulders in Gatineau - Hans Montenegro

Boulders in Gatineau - Hans Montenegro
December 02, 2014 - 

This post shows the boulders in Gatineau (Luskville, bloc du penguin and Home cliff). You can see a drawn topo made by a friend of mine (Jonathan Audy). He is always helping to develop climbing in Quebec. This topo is for the Luskville bouldering. Luskville (35 minutes from Hull): You can see many interesting problems and I believe that there are some potential boulders for developing too. This is a nice place; the approaching pad is ok for the first section. After that, you have to walk up the mountain. It is not easy with more...

Boulderween Competition at Georgia Tech - Francesca Metcalf

Boulderween Competition at Georgia Tech - Francesca Metcalf
November 29, 2014 - 

A few weekends ago was the annual Boulderween competition at Georgia Tech. This is a small comp that we hold at the campus climbing wall every year around Halloween time as a fundraiser for our club. Since it's a Halloween comp, a lot of people climbed in costumes; I dressed as a fire bender from Avatar the Last Airbender, but the costume was pretty toasty, so it didn't last long.

A Cold Weekend for Team Fire - Nicholas Milburn

A Cold Weekend for Team Fire - Nicholas Milburn
November 29, 2014 -  Nicholas Milburn

I always knew climbing was dangerous, but I never really had a true grasp of how bad things could go. I have heard stories about people injuring or killing themselves, I have fallen and missed pads, I have pulled draws out of the wall and I like climbing highballs, but I have never seriously hurt myself. I often joke about how close I come to serious injury sometimes, but I actually grasped how close I really was to injury. I have a much better grasp of how dangerous climbing can be after my recent trip to Joe’s Valley. ...

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...

A Lesson from the Red - Aicacia Young

A Lesson from the Red - Aicacia Young
November 27, 2014 -  Aicacia Young

One fine October day, I received a text from a friend saying, “Hey, anyone want to go to the Red with me in two weeks"? Um, seriously? Ask me a real question. OF COURSE I WANT TO GO TO THE RED! It’s been like 3 years since I touched that heavenly sandstone! I was so giddy I could hardly stand it, but two weeks wasn’t much time to prepare for the Red, or any worthy climbing destination for that matter. It had just started cooling off in Austin to the point that I didn’t feel like...
