Climbing: video of Anna in Arrow Head

Saturday Anna and I went to the Mesa Verde sector in the Gorges du Loup. This nice little cliff along the river has 30+ routes between 6c and 8a+ and most of them are excellent. This time we made a video of Anna climbing Arrow Head, probably the most famous 8a in the Gorges.

Climbing: Dies Irae and Deverse

As always when the temperatures rise on the French Riviera, Deverse becomes the best climbing cliff. Unfortunately with the rain and moisture we had in the past weeks, many routes are wet but there still are enough to make a big climbing day.

Alpinism: Aiguille Carree – Frendo Ravanel

Jon Griffith, Carine Salvy and I climbed the Frendo Ravanel route at the Aiguille Carr√©e (3716 m) in the Mont Blanc Massif. That was our first day of photo shoots for Berghaus. We left Argenti√®re quite late and when we reached the end of the last hard pitch, it was too late to top out […]
