“Dreamtime” by Thilo Schröter

(Kommentare: 0)

Two weeks ago a hungry animal chewed through some cables in my car and it’s been at the mechanic since. I was forced to stay longer than planned, and things could have been pretty sad alone without a car, but luckily I could join @melissaleneve for some sessions in Dreamtime, and today on the fourth one it went down! Right after, I got the message that my car will be ready tomorrow, so it’s finally time to close this chapter, and get going on the long drive. Happy to go home but psyched to come back!

“Kryptos” - second woman to send V15

(Kommentare: 0)

For BD Ambassador Kaddi Lehmann, climbing a V15 boulder problem all started with fixing the gears on her old mountain bike. But those accumulated miles she pedaled uphill to Kryptos—an aesthetic limestone seam in the Swiss Jura—pale in comparison to the internal journey she endured to reach the top of that boulder. On that intrepid internal voyage, Lehmann discovered that success didn’t hinge on physical power, but on motivation, belief, and happiness.

This is her story.

La Danse Des Balrogs, world’s first 8B by Fred Nicole

"La Danse des Balrogs", put up in 1992 by Fred Nicole as world's first 8B boulder problem. My biggest obsession of the past years. I've never put so much effort and heart into a problem. So many days alone under this boulder, so many doubts. So many beautiful sunsets and quiet hours listening to the birds there.

Hide and Sick 8B+/V14 - Paul Robinson (4K)


On my final day in Maltatal, I was able to make the 2nd ascent of "Hide and Sick," a new 8B+/V14 from Jernej Kruder. The line proved to be quite powerful and crimpy. It was amazing to work this line and eventually climb it. I hope you enjoy the short!
