Portare North Face a un meeting d’arrampicata nel settore boulder più bello di tutto il Trentino? A volte è un duro lavoro, ma ci tocca farlo comunque 😊
.
E complimenti anche ai ragazzi di @cleanforclimbdaone , che non si limitano a scalare ma s’impegnano nel diffondere un approccio consapevole al mondo outdoor

Windgather Rocks

Awesome day out with four climbers from @mileendclimbing. Windgather in west Peak delivered in bucketloads, and everyone got their grits! Well done to Emily, Shashank, Michael and Dolly, can’t wait to get up there again before it gets all too chilly. #peakdistrict #gritstone #rock #rockclimbing #climbing #mileendclimbingwall #climber #climbers #crag #cragging #tradclimbing #tradisrad #adventure #weekendwarrior #headonout #ratherbeoutside

Reposted from @amga1979 (@get_regrann) - One of the most basic but critical climbing skills is tying into the rope. Here's a bird's eye 👁 view of the "start hard finish easy method." Using this tip results in a perfectly tied figure-eight follow through. And no - a barrel knot is not needed, nor is a back up.

Pretty hard to muscle through slab, way easier to blame it on your shoes and go back to the crimpy stuff

Learning how to set feature problems, and here’s @samgtmeyer breaking all my beta (i asked him to). 😂
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
It’s been interesting trying to figure out how to set a route that will work for someone my size and also someone much bigger than me. So far it hasn’t been super successful since I suck at dynos and get scared of big moves. 🤣 But I’m gonna work on it!!! Hey other routesetters 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️ how do you do it?

Lundy Island - The Landmark Trust

Back from 4 days climbing at #Lundy.

Amazing island with lots of wildlife as you can see in the picture. By the way, it is a #babyseal, not a Labrador as lots of people said.

You access to the island by a an hour and a half ferry from Devon. The island is owned by the #NationalTrust therefore it is very well maintained.

You feel the wilderness as you walk around. There are few building in the island. A pub, a shop, a church, a lighthouse and few others.

We stayed in an old mansion that add to the atmosphere. If you are on budget you can also camp in the island.

The rock here is mainly #granite, of the sharp kind. Virtually unpolished, at the moment (with few exceptions). Unfortunately the #ClimbersClub has used in its guidebook the start system, therefore the 3 starts routes may be busy and will start to get polished (sooner or later). Most of the climbs require abseiling so it is not a good place to go with children and I think that pets are not allowed in the island. The island is full of sheep, goats, birds and Scottish cows!

As you can imagine there are climbs for all grades in the island but we felt particularly spoiled at the E1 level. I haven't seen many VDs around though.

You can see what we climbed there iny UKC logbook: https://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/showlog.php?id=172934

Picture is me seconding on the Fifth Appendage, E1 5a (although that bit that I am climbing in the photo felt harder) at Devil's Chimney.

Cathedral Peak

I use to believe that hiking to the top of the toughest and highest peaks was worth every amazing view! Though that is still the case, now climbing to the top of peaks is my go to!
This was at the top of Cathedral Peaks in Yosemite, Toulomne Meadows.
We ascended to 1,800ft (if not more) to the base of our climb. We ended up just picking a “route” to go on that day! The climb became more tough than we anticipated, yet still finished it! We then had to go back and forth with repelling/free climbing/hiking down the climb. Once we hit tree level we then had a good 2.5-3 mile hike back. We found a plentiful amount of booty, which in the long run helped out rap down the climb!
In total the climb took us approximately 12 hours, from start of the car back down to the car.
Not sure what the name of the climb is or graded as, but we are going with;
~~All Nighter Booty Call~~
(still unsure of the grade, but let’s just say it had it difficult parts!) Can’t wait for another adventure soon!!!!

Sometimes fate is like a small sandstorm that keeps changing directions. You change direction but the sandstorm chases you. You turn again, but the storm adjusts. Over and over you play this out, like some ominous dance with death just before dawn. Why? Because this storm isn't something that blew in from far away, something that has nothing to do with you. This storm is you. Something inside of you. So all you can do is give in to it, step right inside the storm, closing your eyes and plugging up your ears so the sand doesn't get in, and walk through it, step by step. There's no sun there, no moon, no direction, no sense of time. Just fine white sand swirling up into the sky like pulverized bones. That's the kind of sandstorm you need to imagine.

And you really will have to make it through that violent, metaphysical, symbolic storm. No matter how metaphysical or symbolic it might be, make no mistake about it: it will cut through flesh like a thousand razor blades. People will bleed there, and you will bleed too. Hot, red blood. You'll catch that blood in your hands, your own blood and the blood of others.

And once the storm is over you won't remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won't even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm you won't be the same person who walked in. That's what this storm's all about. ― Haruki Murakami | Cap Gun Ban, Rocktown, GA. Photo: @wheelwood

I wish I could experience my body the way that I see it in climbing photos.
I look in the mirror and pinch the fat I have on my tummy, notice the bags under my eyes, the wrinkles forming on my forehead. I consciously work to appreciate my body, but I don’t know if it’s a battle I will ever win.
Then I see this photo and notice the back muscles I never see, my flexibility, the way my hair flies when I go for a big move, and I feel beautiful.
It makes me sad to think that I am so conditioned by society that I have a hard time celebrating this amazing body of mine, but climbing helps. Seeing photos like this helps.
Thanks @titlenine and @freyafennwoodphotography for capturing these moments and sharing them with me.

Photo and caption by @gnarlynickolas // I brought a camera and tripod up a climb on lovers with my friend Dennis. I had intended on taking startrail photos, but when I got to the small ledge at the top of pitch one I noticed that the milky way was rising directly in line with the cliff. I really couldnt pass up the opportunity to get this shot so I put the star trails on hold for a while. I'm stoked to have a night photo from Lovers Leap since I seem to climb there more at night than during the day haha.

Have to deal with a small injury these days. So, no climbing, no mountaineering😔 From one day to the next I had a lot of time, and out of nowhere there were many unconscious thoughts, feelings, fears and questions coming up on my mind. Deep stuff. And no chance to escape. It was annoying. So I had the choice to ignore it, or to face it. I have chosen confrontation. It was exhausting but I realized how necessary that injury was. It was a chance! What felt hard in the beginning turned out to be a gift. Now I feel like I've dropped a pound of stones that I had beed carrying for so long. And suddenly I can feel how my injury is getting better and better✨ Everything is healing. Sometimes it just takes time.

So when your body tells you to take a break - listen and take it seriously! You should always take care of your mental and physical health🙏🏼 Being healthy is a result of the  choices you make every day, and even the little victories matter. Choose wisely - and LOVE WITH YOUR WHOLE DAMN HEART! Just saying😊😊 Foto 📸 @paediil
