Guernsey's LED Moonboard

The LED moon boards are appearing all over the world, and we always love to hear about your builds, we got sent this email by our LED guru Chad, from Martin over in Guernsey. It looks like they had a brilliant time updating their moon board to the new LED system, it sure looked like thirsty work Hey Chad,   Thanks again for your help. I meant to get back to you sooner to let you know how it went, just in case you were interested! I actually finished a few weeks ago, and it's made the moon board so much more fun.   So, f**k me, that was a LOT of cutting, stripping, tinning and soldering of wires! Over a long weekend we had a lot of 3am/4am finishes and we consumed a mammoth amount of beer. I was lucky to rope in a couple of other guys or I might have gone insane! When I told one of them we could have bought the LED's from you (near the end), he nearly broke into tears, which frankly made it all worthwhile! Read More...

1. Les Étoiles Filantes. By Joost Hess  

Day 1:   First day of the 15/16 Font season. Conditions are far from ideal, but we are in the forest and we can climb. With Les Étoiles Filantes (8a) I did my 96th 8th degree boulder, only 4 to go!!

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.

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...

  Spring holidays in Fontainebleau didn`t offer as much climbing as I had hoped. Strong Atlantic cyclones gave
