Deep Water Solo Contest

I returned home from my summer trip to France with an 8a red point, lots of other routes, a good tan and a feeling that I could, if I wanted to, get in a really great shape in a short period of time. But since the next international competitions I will be participating in is not set until october and november I chose to take it easy and enjoy what was left of my summer vacation.

However, this weekend on the 1st of september there was a competition located near the place I live. In Aalborg at the harbour frontage, a Deep Water Solo contest took place. Of course I had to participate! In this life there is only one thing that I really, deeply hate; cold water. Even in the summer when it is 30 degrees outside and most people just dives into the nearest bathing place as quick as possible, it can actually take more than half an hour for me just to get my feet into the water. So to contest in a Deep Water Solo contest above a harbour has never even occurred as a possibility for Read More...

Perfect orange sand stone, awesome lines and shapes, a beautiful view and lots of good people. That’s what Rocklands is all about! I have spent the last four weeks in this bouldering paradise and it has truly been what any boulderer would dream of. This was my second trip to Rocklands. I was there last year as well and by the end of that trip I knew I had to come back this summer. There are so many boulders to try and so many areas to go. And still there seems to be a lot more potential! Most of the climbing is slightly, to very overhanging on good in-cut crimpers/holds and with mostly good friction. There are both small and safe boulders where you don’t need many pads or even a spotter, and there are high, beautiful and majestic lines with amazing moves and lots of climbing. There are good boulders on any level and the scenery is perfect!


Training, competitions and finally Rock Climbing!

I can finally write a new blog! :) In the last months I have been very busy with school because I had the exams, but luckily the school is over and now I can climb seriously. I trained a lot because I had some Italian Cup competitions to participate in.  

-Italy Boulder Cup in Ivrea: 7th place -Italy Boulder Cup in Firenze: 29th place (my worst comp, I was not really in shape). -Italy Boulder Cup in Gressoney: 5th place (my best result, I was in the final with five other athletes, I was so happy.)   Some bouldering outside thatRead More...

La Coka Nostra 8A+ - A Gem in

Recently I was able to finish off  "La Coka Nostra" 8A+, a quite new line in Tumpen, Ötztal. It's a great compression climb that reminded me a bit of Black Shadow and The Vice in Rocklands.... Check out the footage of that solo - mission!   http://vimeo.com/42026229Read More...

Is life aroad trip? For MOON climber Isaac its not far from true. The past fall, winter and spring seasons has been completely jammed pack into one giant road trip this year. We've been traveling from one place to the next with constant sending of classic problems along with new development at home crags in-between trips. After being to the Southeast of the U.S. for the first time, and digesting what it had to offer, its definitely changed my perspective as to what is worth developing and what is clearly not, back home. Seems like this sort of awakening is an amazing thing to frequent into the overall climbing experience, oh yeah and also the whole cultural difference was quite shocking. From the shift in humidity levels to the local banjo talk, it was like being straight out of the movie "Deliverance". All in all it was one of the top road trips ever, there is a video on Moons Vimeo page here http://vimeo.com/38232081 <Read More...
