Disappointment, Perfectionism & Identity in Climbing - Aicacia Young

Disappointment, Perfectionism & Identity in Climbing - Aicacia Young
November 09, 2013 -  Aicacia Young

Climbing has become one of my strongest passions for so many reasons. Outside of the physical benefits of the sport, I feel that climbing has greatly improved my mental and emotional health. After some mild disappointment last weekend, I decided to explore the reasoning behind my disappointment, and my discovery was a bit deeper than I had originally anticipated. Disappointment is something I’ve struggled with a lot during this last year of climbing, and I just now realized how pointless it is. I think that disappointment is certainly normal for most people, especially in climbing, but I...

Autumn Coaching in Fryer Belgium - Michel Kleinjan

Autumn Coaching in Fryer Belgium - Michel Kleinjan
September 27, 2013 -  Michel Kleinjan

Just back from a two day coaching trip to Belgian climbing area Fryer. Two years ago Tim Reuser (19 years) tried 2 hard routes in this very hard graded climbing area. Shingen, 8b+ and Namche Bazar 8b were too hard that time. We went back to explore the grade again. We had 1 full day and one morning to do both routes. As a coach it's my role to get the best out of a climber. In this particular case it came down to make sure Tim was able to focus 100% on the climbing of those routes. So...

Projecting Begins - Urs Moosmuller

Finally after several days of work my project was completely bolted and ready for attempts. For me this is one of the hardest routes I have attempted and right off the ground you hit a hard V8 boulder problem on small crimps to a perfect no hand knee bar rest at the base of the 15m horizontal ceiling. An awkward 12+ section hugging a hanging block leads to an 8 move V9 boulder problem to a good double knee bar rest. Half way out the roof you get to relax for a minute before the six move long V11...

Mexico Part 1 - El Potrero Chico - Urs Moosmuller

Mexico Part 1 - El Potrero Chico - Urs Moosmuller
April 03, 2013 - 

On Christmas day, my friend Daniel and I decided to head down into Mexico to check out the climbing in El Potrero Chico. El Potrero Chico is located right beside the small town of Hidalgo just an hours drive from Monterrey. Monterrey is one of the largest cities in Mexico and has recently been taken over by two major drug cartels and is considered one of the most dangerous. Coming over the border was nerve racking, but surprisingly easy. We got through customs in twenty minutes which must be some kind of record, because we have heard stories of...

Colette McInerney - Take Five with 5.10 Athlete Gabri Moroni

Colette McInerney - Take Five with 5.10 Athlete Gabri Moroni
March 15, 2013 - 

I first met up with Italian Gabriele Moroni, 25, two years ago it was on the other side of the world during Petzl’s Rock Trip in Getu Valley China. Besides having perfect English and negating my perceived perception that all Italians had dark hair, Gabriele stuck out in my mind from his incredible climbing performance. Gabri, as his close friends call him, was one of the only among a trove of talented athletes in attendance to send the Rock Trip’s “Ultimate Route” Coup de Bambou, 9a (14d). When I saw Gabri again this spring in Catalunya Spain he seemed...
