Climbing in Norrköping http://cutloose.be/blog/climbing-in-norrkoping/ http://cutloose.be/blog/climbing-in-norrkoping/#comments Wed, 05 May 2010 12:20:38 +0000 admin http://cutloose.be/?p=219 We took some time of from the conference to have a look around in the neighbourhood of the city. Not far from the centre, there is a nice sea port and a gulf surrounded by a forest.

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.

More juice please! http://cutloose.be/blog/more-juice-please/ http://cutloose.be/blog/more-juice-please/#comments Tue, 20 Apr 2010 23:45:08 +0000 admin http://cutloose.be/?p=200 I ordered some more batteries from amazon today to avoid the big failure from Friday in the future.

Got myself some 2700 mAh AA’s for the flashes and 1000 mAh AAA’s for my brand new Yongnuo RF-602 Flash Trigger’s. I continued the spending spree by upgrading the crappy GP battery charger with this baby. This one should automatically stop charging when ready. The charger from GP involved a guessing game, and not an enjoyable one.

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+.

Out with cvangtlicht http://cutloose.be/blog/out-with-cvangtlicht/ http://cutloose.be/blog/out-with-cvangtlicht/#comments Tue, 20 Apr 2010 00:34:08 +0000 admin http://cutloose.be/?p=183 On Friday, I went with cvangtlicht to Petrol Club where Chase&Status was playing. Wanting to try out some party photography, I brought the camera along for the ride.
Sadly, one battery of my “good” set died earlier that day and this left me with just one set with a lower mAh.
Stuck with slow recycle times and a set that could run out at any minute, I decided to shoot at ISO 6400.
Images can be found here with a fair bit of noise.

IMG_8521

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 :-)

Last sunday, the climbing school took us to Yvoir (Google Maps) for our first outdoor climbing session.

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…..
