The best crag in the world?

I write this Blog having just got back to our Gite in Gap after a great day climbing in Ceuse. I’ve only ever had 1 day at Ceuse and that was way back in 1995. I am now wondering what I have been doing with my life for the past 20 years! Many claim it to be the best sport-climbing cliff in the world and it would be hard to argue with this claim. Bullet hard limestone, stunning location, world class routes in all directions and at least on the routes I climbed today a definite old school feel about them. We headed up to the Berlin sector and warmed up on a technical 6b+ face climb that really reminded me of the Styx wall at Buoux, keeping you on your toes, literally speaking all the way to the belay.

Climbing Legend

Born in the suburbs of London in 1966, Moon started rock climbing on the sandstone outcrops of Kent and Sussex. A pioneer in the sport-climbing revolution of the 1980s and a bouldering legend in the 1990s, he is one of the most iconic rock climbers in the sport’s history.

25 years ago, he was the first person to climb Hubble at Raven Tor. At its inception, Hubble was the hardest sport route in the world, now widely recognised as the world's first F9a. And of June this year,  Ben made an inspirational ascent of Rainshadow (9a) at Malham Cove in Yorkshire.

A Summer of ups and downs Michiel Nieuwenhuijsen

In mid-June I was in Font, the season was over and I had no expectations. Just a week chilling in the forest, one of the nicest places I know. But despite the heat I was able to send my ‘summer’ project Chaos (8b). I felt really strong and confident about the summer to come, 3 weeks sending in Silvretta. But things turned out different. The day after we returned from Font I dislocated my kneecap, never go to the beach, what does a climber have to do on the beach anyway ;) I couldn’t walk, couldn’t drive, couldn’t stretch my leg, nothing. Straight away I knew that Silvretta was off the table and I was worried that the whole summer would be a big (climbing) deception. I know I shouldn’t whine too much, because I hardly ever have injuries. Recuperation still was boring, went way too slow and my mood was (occasionally) poor during it. Big thanks to my good friend and colleague Mathieu who helped me with this as a physiotherapist. The knee was slowly doing better and I was stRead More...

Weekend in Val Daone

I finally got a chance to escape for a weekend and go climbing! Bouldering in Val Daone and a quick stop in Arco, that was our plan and I only wish we had more time. Icecream, cappuccino, little shopping and saying hello to our youth team who are crushing there at the World Championships.
Then we were off.  Up in the Valley, the air was so much cooler and the fine granite boulders were waiting for us. I'm slowly getting back in shape after my finger injury and a busy summer, so I just wanted to enjoy it and climb a lot.

Definitely didn't expect so many multipitch adventures this year, but I’m not complaining. Well pleased! It started with a nice three pitch route, Quazar (6c, 6c, 7a), on Bobanova


Upon us all a little rain must fall

People in Sweden always talk about the weather. After the obligatory greeting phrase” hi, how are you” swedes always follow up with: ”What do you think about the weather?”, or ”The weather is wonderful/awful today!”.

I'm not going to complain about the weather, today I'm just going to be a normal swede. The summer hasn't arrived yet! Rain, rain, rain, rain, rain and some more rain; that's what this summer has been all about.


I feel sorry for the Swedish people. Summer is what we live for. We buy summer furniture and bikinis during the winter, we plan out summer trips years ahead and we're doing everything to make that summer tan longer lasting.


Summer is here...

...and so are the hot temps. We've been trying to handle all that with climbing on some river bed spots where it gets a bit cooler. I only wish I had more time to go climbing but we're in the middle of the world cup season and for me it means many days spent in the gym or going from one comp to another. We're just back from Toronto and Vail where we had some time in between the two comps and we went to the beautiful RMNP. I remember the last time I was in Colorado it was raining all the time and this time it was just blue sky. Amazing. Now we're back home and I did some routesetting and coaching for the team trainings and I went out bouldering a few times with Gasper and our french bulldog Mr. Truffe. I did a few FA's which is really cool but I must admit that usually the guys do all the hard work with brushing and searching and all that. Establishing new boulders or area's takes a lots of time and dedication but it is also the best feeling climbing something that's never been done bRead More...
