IFSC Boulder World Cup Innsbruck 2014

20 05 2014

After watching this competition I must say the star of the event was Rustam Gelmanov.
What is your take on it?

Highlights (as I see it)

11:00 – “Yes I can”

40:40 – “Yeeeeeeeeeeeeees I can”

Hey Guys,

Training session @ Upper Limits – Bloomington, Illinois (USA)

7 06 2013

Back in 2011 I was fortunate enough to meet the Normal/Bloomington, Illinois, USA climbing community that trained at the Upper Limits – Bloomington climbing gym. Here is me, on a route that I have set with the aim of leaving a 5.14a project for the guys to work on.

[Personally, I never got the chance to do the redpoint, but I liked the moves and I can say that the holds were all small, the moves intense, and the only "rest" was hanging with one hand and one foot on (underneath) the roof].

 

Enjoy:

 

Cheers,

R.





Heart rate: bmp during a climbing day

20 05 2013

Here is the data from my little experience, using a HR monitor, during a normal (i.e. awesome) climbing day.

Personal HR references: 50bpm (basal) to 196bpm (maximum)

Fenda(bpm)

 

Let me know your thoughts, about this.

If interested, see also some data from one of my training sessions:

ICE climbing @ Serra da Estrela (Portugal)

14 03 2013

According to the legend every 8 years there is a weekend where “Cascata do Inferno” (waterfall from Hell) WI, V is thick enough to be climbed leading.

I was one of the lucky bastards that climbed it this year and, as such, I am one of the few who can testify that this ice waterfall actually exists and it is not just another portuguese climbing myth.
