SOME PEOPLE BUILD WALLS, OTHER PEOPLE CLIMB THEM.

For us climbers the walls are fundamental; they are the places where we create, explore, dream and socialize. They are a symbol of growth and union.

Unfortunately, on a global level, this is not always the case; they are too often seen as a division, as a way to separate people and communities. "Walls are Meant for Climbing" is an initiative born to celebrate and enhance the climbers' community, to show once again that walls can be a meeting point and not a division!

On August 18th, @thenorthface will offer the chance to climb for free in over 150 gyms around the world, donating, for every person that climbs, $ 1 that will be donated to support the Nepalese Khumbu Climbing Center project.

I will celebrate this day at the Vertikale Kletterzentrum Brixen Bressanone. Who wants to join me?

Old but gold, right @francoislebeau?
I met Franรงois many years ago at RRG. He was on a trip, combing his main passions for photography and climbing (were you already into chips and salsa at the time?!๐Ÿ˜‰)
This is probably the first photograph he took of me. A couple of years later we reconnected and since then we've shared a lot of adventures together.
Always smiling and keen to understand my ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡น french, he shares his good energy wherever he goes. I don't need to say anything about his photography as it speaks for itself... I just wanted to give you a glimpse of the person behind the ๐Ÿ“ธ. Keep on the good vibes amigo, you're a good one!... see you soon for another portaledge party ๐Ÿซ๐ŸŸ and some OW sessions!

I miss ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ญ already

On our second day on the Eiger we decided to climb "Magic Mushroom" (yes, we like to repeat routes with this name ๐Ÿ˜œ).
The weather was still too unstable for spending more days on the wall, so we opted for a one-day route.
We started early to climb this 20+ pitches beautiful route, which ends exactly on the famous base jumpers exit (the mushroom ๐Ÿ„); we were happy to stand on the top before the storm arrived and after having both free climbed it. Big up to @rogerschaeli and @christoph_hainz for putting up this really nice steep alpine sport climb on perfect rock: everybody should go and give it a try ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป
And now, how will day 3 looks like? Any suggestions?

Yesterday we changed our plan and enjoyed the classic "Deep blue sea". I was positively surprised by the quality of the rock: so good! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

We topped out just in time for the thunderstom, so we even didn't have to take a shower ๐Ÿ˜œ

Big up to @louderthan11 for the nice work and the good time spent on the wall! It's almost that time of the year again ;-)

The more I travel, the more I understand the beauty of my home region. It feels good to be back here.

Bye bye Canada ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ!

I'd always wanted to climb this @sonnietrotter's test piece, located in such a beautiful place ๐Ÿ”. I'm glad we drove up to Lake Louise before to fly back home.
โ€ข
I don't have a pic of the send, so I just sneaked one (๐Ÿ“ธ @skupinski) of strongman @timemmett ๐Ÿ˜‰
P.S... the left hand crimp is gone...

"Cobra Crack" ๐Ÿ
I wished I had more time to try this stunning (and painful) line!... but I guess I simply got overmotivated for Dreamcatcher.
โ€ข
Well, life is about choiches... and now I've two more reasons to go back to Squamish ๐Ÿ˜‰
Thanks to @joolyhart for the nice ๐Ÿ“ธ

Bye bye Squamish!

We spent our last day climbing some wider stuffs with friends. Now it's time to drive north for a couple of days, before to fly back home.
Thanks a lot to all the old and new friends for the nice time we had here in BC! Hope to see you all soon!

@thenorthface @blackdiamond @lasportivagram @frictionlabs @vertical.life.climbing

We came to Canada with the idea of checking out Squamish and then drive up north. One month later, we're still here.

Usually when I visit a place for the first time I prefer to climb a lot of classics, instead of focusing on just one climb. This time things went different and I just couldn't stop trying "Dreamcatcher". I got too close too many times to just give up, but now I feel it's time to move on and do something else. It's a hard decision to take...but I'll be back with colder temps!
