Adventure ahead!

I'm off to Fontainebleau for two weeks! I'm leaving tomorrow with a bunch of friends which means good times WILL be had. A forest full of sandstone blocs, plenty of time and a group of psyched people. Hoping for the best. It always turns out the best way possible it's just about staying focused and believing it. Stay tuned for a trip report :)!

meanwhile some SIKK shiat from Down under with DG& the crew

Can't sleep

Definitely can't fall asleep right now. Probably had too much tea/coffee while studying today and apparently even the gym session with a bit of campus boarding I did in the evening doesn't help. I guess watching climbing movies won't help either, but anyway... here's a few if you're up late too

Dave Graham vs Mind 2 Motion 8B+ from Bearcam Media on Vimeo.

BIG WORM with Dave Wetmore from Louder Than Eleven on Vimeo.

Something Old, Something New - West Virginia 5.14 from Louder Than Eleven on Vimeo.

not much climbing was done lately due to uni... but there will be more in the future :) I just remembered the project in Osp that is still waiting to be done, can't wait to get back on that one. And some other cliffs that will be hot in the winter/spring, provided the weather holds on.
I really enjoyed the above videos and there's one more thing I want to say... Dave Graham is a LEGEND.

p.s. this should be at the top of this post but anyway - Kruder has done The Story of the 2 Worlds!! I think this basically just reaffirms his place among legends along with the FAist of the historical block, DG himself.
