• DeepWaterSoloing- psicobloc...
    DeepWaterSoloing- psicobloc... … is a form of solo rock climbing, practiced on sea cliffs at high tide, that relies solely upon the presence of water at the base of a climb to protect against injury from the generally high difficulty routes. Although this is viewed as a relatively new style of climbing, it probably originated in the late 1960s or early 1970s in Dorset, Southern England or Majorca. Real development of the style began in 2001 with Klem Loskot's ascent of "Loskot & two smoking barrels", an spectacular double-dyno in Majorca's Porto Christo. It's current highpoint was reached when Chris Sharma after many tries finally climbed "Es Portas" also on Majorca in 2006. This type of climbing is most famously practiced on the coasts of England, in Thailand, Vietnam and on Majorca but is potentially possible on many more sea cliffs as well as above rivers and lakes around the world.

3 klassische Eifel Klettereien, 1990


Leider alles Klettergeschichte, diese Routen sind heute nicht mehr kletterbar! Udo Neumann in "Hühnerbrust", Gregor Jaeger in "Bibos Idee" und Udo Neumann in "Negermemme." (alle Routen übrigens "top" geklettert, auch wenns nicht so aussieht ;-)  -

Silbergeier

Very nice video of Nina Caprez and Cedric Lachat in this mythical Rätikon route, with Nina making the first women ascent of one of the hardest multipitch routes in the world.

R.I.P. Patrick Edlinger

If you started climbing in the early eighties, there were only a couple heros to choose from and among those outstanding climbers, Patrick Edlinger was not only the most glamerous, he was also the one "who had it all". Some of the most inspiring imagery of that time showed Patrick Edlinger soloing barefoot in the Verdon and Buoux or repeating everything in the western US in unheard-of good style. He single-handingly developed the Verdon and Ceüse (!!!) and, just when everybody thought he was just a poser (some of his film were rather "french" ;-) - he won all the important competitions! Among them was Munich 1989, the pic below shows him on the final route.

Patrick Edlinger winning Munich, 1989

In 2006 he moved to La Palud to be close to his beloved Verdon Gorge where I shot the pic of Patrick and his kid in 2005. He became only 52 and will be always remembered for one of the characters who shaped modern climbing forever!

Patrick Edlinger with his kid, Verdon 2005

Somebody already uploaded my video comparision of Patrick Edlinger and Wolfgang Güllich in Munich 1989 in bad quality (after the break) but I will re-upload it in better quality as well as other footage we have of Patrick...

Chris Sharma about Letting Go

Chris Sharma talks about the ‘inside game’ of climbing – how our thoughts can either hinder our performance or enhance our experience. The universal idea of letting go and focusing on the present moment allows us to more fully enjoy our passionate pursuits and our lives… of course this is easier said that done.

Der alte Mann und das Mehr


Im August/September 2009 verbrachten Toni Lamprecht, Uli Strunz und Benno Wagner mehrere Wochen in der Verdonschlucht, um den fantastischen Kalkwänden Südfrankreichs eine wunderschöne Erstbegehung abzuringen. Das Resultat: „Le Vieux et la mer", mit 7 Seillängen bis zum 10. Grad eine der anspruchsvollsten und besten Erstbegehungen vom „alten Fuchs" Toni:

„Hat man einmal eine Route im Sektor „Ula" geklettert, so kommt man nicht umhin, rechts davon immer wieder mit staunenden Augen den glatten, vielleicht spektakulärsten Pfeiler der gesamten Schlucht zu bewundern. Bald schon ist man gedanklich gefangen - auf der Suche nach kletterbaren Linien.  2008 dann einmal richtig abgeseilt - und da konnte ich meinen Augen kaum glauben. Im Slalom durch leistiges Gelände ist da was möglich. Ein absolutes Wunder!
