Forty metres below the summit, what seemed impossible at first has finally become reality. I would have never thought that I would be able to climb all those pitches free to reach the final testpiece.  It’s day nine on the wall and we are both tired from the previous days of climbing. But our motivation is stronger than ever. The sun is shining, we are hanging out in our portaledge and the weather is on our side. Although it is...

Pizza, Cappuccino, Espresso, Gelati, Pomodori…and Crack Climbing     Italy is best known for its food and great climbing in places like Finale, Sardinia, Arco, and Sicily.

Once it gets colder in Austria, when the summer is finished in the Alps and when conditions get better and better, that’s the time the Yosemite season starts.

Probably one of the most famous climbing destinations in the UK is the Peak District, but, because it’s too hot...

It was this time of a year where we got stoked for this almost regular trip to Spain. What i like most about Spain is the simple life. There is no rush at all. breakfast, drinking good coffee’s, go climbing all day long, having a good time together with friends, go for a beer, dinner and repeat. The years before we always wanted to climb as much as possible and try as many different routes as possible. But this time we both had a...

Why do I always like to stay in the Alps during summer? Because there is so much to climb! The Dolomites are special because of the long climbing history. For more than 115 years people have been climbing on these imposing rock formations and there are tons of classic old-school routes. In 1901 the first climber—remarkably a woman named Beatrice Tommason—made the first ascent of the Via Classica, the first route on the south face of...
