There aren’t words to describe how beautiful Fontainebleau is. All the hype about the bouldering area being the best in the world is completely true. The climbing is very technical, physical, and mentally demanding with many different kinds of movements and styles.
The second half of March this year, after so many years, I finally got the chance to climb at the really good areas of Spain.
Here we have a new climbing park In Bolton pass Estrie, Québec. Many friends are developing that area. The problems and the rock are amazing. I believe this place will get more traffic in the next few years. We need to be careful with the access and respect the trails and the environment. This place is remarkable, many nice hard potential problems with wonderful movements. I believe this is my last time in this park because I will move to BC. Here you find three wonderful problems: Vortex v10-v11, Cortex V12 and Samurai Crawler...
I have had a blast growing as a climber and as a person in Golden. For the last semester I have had to take a step back on training and take a step forward with community involvement. I founded and coach the School of Mines Climbing Club. I also was blessed enough to get to climb my way through Utah over spring break. I had a blast on moderates in Moab and then threw down in Joes Valley. So far 2015 is the bomb!!!
The snow has arrived in France and with it the possibility of finding dry rock outside is pretty much impossible. This leaves either gym training or ice climbing. I have never experienced ice climbing before and with my limited knowledge of the climbers and climbing areas here I was reluctant to start. But after meeting my friend Arnaud who is a local climber here in Grenoble with a lot of experience in multi-pitch climbing, rock climbing, and ice climbing, I was convinced to head out to the mountains to try ice climbing.
