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!
I don’t believe Alex Honnold does much drinking, but if representing a brand of Scotch Whiskey allows him to continue his climbing career more power to him. In this short
add video, we see Alex go about his day, talking about his van and life as a climber…also whiskey. Enjoy!
You can head over to Epictv.com to watch a new short video of Dave Graham, Jimmy Webb, Jan Hojer, Michael O’Rouke, Isabelle Faus, and Chad Greedy pulling down on some hard projects and…shooting trees with a shotgun?? I’m not really sure what the ethics are like up in the Secret Garden, but I don’t think anyone would be to happy if I started blasting off rounds at the local crag. To each his own I guess?
Plugging my entry to the Petzl RocTrip Photo Contest. It would be really amazing to get to go on this trip. The 50 photos with the most votes will go before a panel of judges and one winner will be chosen. Please give my photo and any others a vote if you think they’re worthy!
Nalle has been throwing down a lot of hard ascents near Maltatal, Austria lately and this one may be his hardest ever. A known project for about 13 years, the sit start to Bügeleisen climbs up a large, overhanging block of stone. Having to fight poor weather conditions over the past few years, Nalle finally found the fitness and conditions necessary to take this project down. In a Facebook post Nalle says the this line “could be the hardest thing I’ve climbed”. That’s saying a lot considering his recent ascent of Gioia, a problem that’s been given the rating of V16 by both its first ascensionist, and Adam Ondra who nabbed the second ascent!
