From the Petzl Facebook page, 13 year-old climbing phenom Ashima Shiraishi has scent her first V14! This girl just keeps it coming. I can’t wait to see her push the limits of climbing in the years to come! Congrats Ashima!
Some Petzl sponsored climbers including Dave Graham, Dani Andrada, and Paul Robinson boulder around Macedonia using the new line of Petzl Crash Pads. Along with the great bouldering we even see a quadcopter rescue! Enjoy!
A few weeks ago Minnesota strong man Jim Merli sent the sit start to what is one of the hardest problems in the Midwest, The Amateur(V12/13) at Sawmill Creek Dome in northern Minnesota. Jim dubbed the complete line “L’ Étoile du Nord”, french for “The Star of the North”.
Jimmy and Daniel are in South Africa for the next several weeks taking advantage of the winter temps in the southern hemisphere. They’ve already gotten busy repeating some of the hardest lines the area has to offer, as well as putting up some new ones. We should see a new 8C or two by the end of this trip!
The first in what is to be a three part series of Jimmy Webb crushing hard in Europe. Enjoy!
I’ve thrown together another blog site call Adam’s Escapades. While still a work in progress, this site will highlight my own adventures in rock climbing, hiking, biking, or anything else I might do outdoors. Follow the link to check out my first post about my first time bouldering at Governor Dodge State Park last week. I hope you like it!
