I was pleased to find some boulders within this forest and before moving on was able to pull off some impressive first-ascents in my jeans and sneakers
One line looked quite interesting: a flat plate with tiny holds. Sadly far too tiny for the big, slippery sneakers.
Hopefully, there will be some actual (hard) climbing next week in Niederbronn les bains.]]>
In other news: the route I built in the local climbing gym last Sunday seemed to well received when I dropped by. Besides some bouldering and gymnastics, I spent the better part of the evening promoting and discussing the route. It’s quite fun watching people climbing your creation and some falling out of the crux moves In the end, we graded it 6a+.]]>
I found it difficult to move through the massive crowd to get the shot. Not to mention, avoiding someone blocking line of sight or having one of the other 5 photographers in the middle of shot. I don’t know how C does it, but he seems to manage really well. I myself prefer to have some movement space.
To be continued? Maybe.. Although not having the camera and bag smell like an ashtray is pretty nice
The party itself was off the hook! Chase&Status delivered as expected. And it turns out there is such a thing as good dubstep, not the boring stuff I heard before… go figure]]>
The highlight of the day was definitely climbing the route ‘Just like a woman’. I led the first pitch of this two pitch route graded 5c+ and 6a. Some really cool moves and a super experience.
Can’t wait till next time…..]]>
