Echoes . Outside is hot and sticky from MOUNTAIN EQUIPMENT on Vimeo.

WARNING - contains strong language!

'Why Echoes, it's a good question... It came from one of my first essays, also called echoes. This essay was an echo into my past life, a reverberation to and from the life I had made for myself. [...]
Echoes of a parallel life, of the life we were expected, or trained to live, but there, just on the periphery, just out of reach, is another life – a life – a much better life – the life we all hope to live, but not many do ... It's there, just there – bouncing, echoing around in everyone's head, but it is just that, an echo, a parallel never to be reached or experienced...'

try harder... - A Rocklands Journey from Ben Norman on Vimeo.

I had the opportunity to spend 3 weeks in the climbing paradise of Rocklands, South Africa, during the August this year. This is a video I put together about my Rocklands Journey. I hope I've managed to convey some sort of idea of how spectacular both the environment and the climbing really are and I would urge anyone to go if you have the chance!

BD athlete Daniel Jung on INGA (9a) at Gorges du Loop, France from Black Diamond Equipment on Vimeo.

Black Diamond athlete Daniel Jung spent some time in southern France last year and recently sent us the following report and video of his redpoint of INGA (9a), a combo route that starts with a boulder problem and finishes with roped climbing.

I went climbing in the Loup Gorge in southern France towards the end of September. Gorges du Loup means steep walls, sintered rock, but unfortunately chipped holds too. In the Deverse sector there are not too many natural routes. Those few that aren't chipped, however, are super cool!

I liked INGA a lot. It is unchipped and probably the steepest route in the sector. It was first climbed by Dai Koyamada and repeated by Enzo Oddo. The first half of the route runs underneath a roof that is protected with crash pads. After that, you exit via a short route called 7pm J.P. Show (8c). The boulder problem roof can be climbed by itself too—it's supposed to be about 8B. Before I get into linking an 8c after an 8B boulder, I had to be certain first that I could be certain to do the 8c exit.

I could free 7pm on my fifth attempt—things were going well! I did not find 7pm particularly hard for an 8c ... But in the end, the last ten moves on sloping holds were to be the crux of the whole of INGA after all.

After a lot of guesswork about hook placements to keep my rear end on the wall, I solved the roof boulder. But I still wasn't overly optimistic. Heat waves, cuts, or calm winds could make the climb impossible yet. But fortunately everything worked out and I could climb the roof boulder for the first time. That was a very suspenseful affair! I ended up falling off the last hard moves before the anchor... I was too excited.

After a long break I made another attempt. Just for practice, because the route would not be in the shade for long and the sun was on its way. The boulder went really well again and I was just below the last slopers below the anchor—and the sun was there too! But it all worked out well and I could get to the anchor before the sun. So INGA had been freed earlier than expected and I was once again ecstatic!

The story of 7pm is very interesting. The line was bolted by a Mr. J.P.. with the intention to chip a 7b route. Fortunately he was scooped by Alex Franko who could climb the natural line free. 7pm J.P. Show is the only natural 8c line in the sector... so folks, don't go chipping holds ;-)

Talk to you soon!

Sondrio Street Climbing

L'arrampicata arriva nella città di Sondrio con il primo Street Climbing Contest organizzato dal CAI sez. Valtellinese in collaborazione con i ragazzi della Val di Mello.
Sondrio, sabato 18 dicembre. Ore 19.30. Sul campanile di Piazza Campello due strane sagome illuminate da un fascio di luce avanzano verso l'alto, parallele, aggrappandosi a ogni pietra e sporgenza della torre ligariana.
E' la scenografia di Sondrio Street Climbing 2010, che anche quest'anno ha visto la luce grazie all'impegno del CAI sezione Valtellinese e del suo Gruppo Giovani. (www.vaol.it)
"Il Sondrio Street Climbing è un'occasione per accendere l'interesse della popolazione verso la disciplina dell'arrampicata, ma soprattutto un un pomeriggio di divertimento per la nostra città."

"Un modo per valorizzare il centro cittadino creando un momento di vera aggregazione tra giovani e contesto urbano, avvicinando più persone alla cultura della montagna."

Our goal is to share our motivation for bouldering outdoors. We guess it is the best thing that climbing offers and hopefully some of you will try it for the first time after watching the film. But remember that keeping the nature clean is very important cause we all do not want to annoy other climbers and residents.

Thanks for watching. Keep on crushing and we are always happy about feedback.

Corsica Bloc 2012 from Žiga Janež on Vimeo.

This summer we went to Corsica. Primary goal was bouldering but at the end I managed to climb for two days. Rest of vacation we were just enjoying all the beauty of Corsica landscape.
I am a little bit disappointed above Corsica Bloc bouldering guide. Is it strange or I just didn't found the trick of using it. My personal grade for bouldering spots can be found in the movie.

Places we visited:
- Calvi
- Lumio
- Restonica
- Bavela
- Palombaggia

We will visit Corsica again, this time with rope.

This video was made with Cyberlink PowerDirector 10, Samsung Galaxy S2 and lot of fun.

Rustam Gelmanov and Anna Stöhr are the 2012 Boulder World Cup winners For Rustam a fourth place was enough because Kilian Fischhuber was already eliminated in Saturday's qualifying. (a tiny mistake in the first problem as you can see in the video) The day's victory in Munich fell to the flawlessly climbing Akiyo Noguchi from Japan and Dmitrii Sharafutdinov from Russia, who is suddenly in world-championship-shape again. Very pleasing from a German perspective: Juliane Wurm climbed to the podium, taking only 3 tries more than Akiyo and one more than Anna. In the men Sean McColl from Canada and Jakob Schubert from Austria finished second and third.

Perfect conditions in the final rounds and the biggest athletes participation attracted a huge audience response. 65 men and 51 women from 28 nations went to the start. A total of around 15,000 people wanted to see their performances. They were not disappointed: the finale at around 20 degrees and light winds prevailed perfect conditions for bouldering.

Boulder World Cup in Munich 2012 - Men from bergleben.de on Vimeo.

http://www.bergleben.de/klettern - In the great final of the boulder world cup 2012 in munich Dmitrii Sharafutdinov won ahead of the strong Canadian Sean McColl and Jakob Schubert from Austria. The Russian won also last year in Munich and topped out all four final boulders. Only one try more for reaching the four bonus holds was responsible for McColls lost - he was not able to climb only one boulder in the whole competition. Kilian Fischhuber didn´t reach the semifinal so Rustam Gelmanov won the Overall Boulder World Cup 2012 ahead of the two austrian climbers Fischhuber and Schubert. The germans managed to reach semifinal with three athletes (Baumann, Danker, Conrad) and finished on the places 10, 13 & 18.

AliasCinema presents "THIS WAY" Episode1- Squamish - Genius Loci from AliasCinema | Alex Lavigne on Vimeo.

Alias Cinema presents "This Way", a four part series profiling Arc'teryx Athletes Jason Kruk, Will Stanhope, Jon Walsh and Will Gadd.

Episode 1 - Squamish - Genius Loci.
Featuring Arc'teryx Athlete Jason Kruk and Squamish pioneer Hamish Fraser.

In 1991, tallying more than 20 days in ground up style, Hamish Fraser, Peder Ourom and Mark Gandy established "Genius Loci", a stunning 5 pitch route leading up the Squamish Chief Grand Wall.
Despite it's classic and legendary status, close proximity to the ground, and modest grade (by modern standards), the route has believed to have not been freed in a single ascent until 2012.

VIDEO PROFILE: BD athlete Sarah Seeger in the Frankenjura, Germany from Black Diamond Equipment on Vimeo.

Black Diamond athlete Sarah Seeger met up with videographer Bernardo Gimenez and took him on a tour of her life and climbs in the area. The result is one of Bernardo's finer video profiles for us, one that does a magnificent job of capturing Sarah's spirit and the inspiration she draws from the demanding climbing of the Frankenjura.

Alizée Dufraisse finds her sense of place on the steep limestone routes of Siurana, Spain. From pole vaulting to classical piano, when she puts her mind to something, it's on. Her fun loving, positive attitude and powerful, yet graceful physique has helped her push the limits of women's sport climbing.
