Bernd Zangerl - Same, same....but different...

Wanderlust… it is a strange concept. The desire to discover the unknown Same, same....but different Wanderlust… it is a strange concept. The desire to discover the unknown… far away places…What is this? It is an attraction to distant, random places on our Planet. This is an emotion that I am very familiar with. Yet, I am on the search for something very specific in these distant places. Maybe it is my inquisitive nature that is the catalyst to this desire. I am repeatedly pushed to these wonderful and alluring places. What am I really searching...

Greig Seitz Climbs Bambi 8A+/V12 - Greig Seitz
February 20, 2013 -  Greig Seitz

Recently, I went up to Matthew’s Winter Park. The area up there has mainly two boulders; the Hillside Boulder and the Millennium Boulder. As I went up to this new area, I only had one boulder in mind. This boulder is called Bambi. Bambi is an amazing roof in Matthew’s Winter Park. This boulder consists of multiple big moves through a steep roof. The redpoint crux is a long move to a fairly shallow two finger pocket. After I climbed through the pocket, I climbed through a technical slab to top it out. I was super psyched...

Competition Climbing 2013 - Greig Seitz
February 13, 2013 -  Greig Seitz

This year I have been focusing on climbing in competitions as well as climbing outside. Since I can still compete in the ABS youth series, I have been trying to stay motivated to train for gym climbing. It is hard to maintain a sense of motivation to climb inside while the temps have been so good outside. In January, I went to the ABS Youth Divisional Championship in Tucson, Arizona. During this competition, I met many awesome climbers. The excitement level was high with all my friends and competitors supporting each-other. I...

This is my third competition of the season. There were 63 climbers in the open category. This time the foreign climbers came from Toronto, New Brunswick and U.S.A. I met a very nice man, Josh Larson, who is on the U.S.A. climbing team.The competition had 50 problems for the qualifying round. The qualifying round was hard because the level of the climbers was higher than the last competition. I was amazed to flash problem 50 and this made me very pleased with the qualifying round. After three hours of climbing, I completed six problems beyond problem 41. This score...

Why is it Important to Share Information? - Hans Christian Montenegro

Why is it Important to Share Information? - Hans Christian Montenegro
January 06, 2013 - 

Some weeks ago I went to “Cour du Roi” in Val-David. I realized that there are many potential boulders to do. But, I don’t understand why people do not come to the sector “Cour du Roi.” I think the problem is due to not sharing enough information with other climbers, and they simply don’t know enough about this place.Why is it important to circulate information about a climbing sector?Improve and maintain the climbing sector.It is important that many climbers go to the sector to climb. When the people climb in the sector, the sector is cleaned, the problems and...
