Rai rain and even more rain today. So we're all depressed and unhappy and especially thinking about our precious projects...

And again we're chillin' in Gap the capital next to Ceuse.

I think we're addicted to internet...

Yesterday was quite a good day, and the days before actually too. Eythor also climbed Bibendum (7b+) and I flashed Dititic Line (7b) and tried Teuchipa 7c. Valdi onsighted the route (wich is as many points as climbing 8a+ minus 5 points on, thats what we're joking around about at the moment. Everybody here is keeping a list on 8a, except me, I'll only start doing that when I really climb 8a.

Today we'll chill-out at the gorge close to the climbing area Orpierre together with Leon and Wouter (see picca, Wouter relaxing after the 1hour walk up to the cliff) some Duch friends of mine.

Anyway, we're having fun :)

See our pictures on Picasa:

Bourinator 8a Flash

Last saturday Valdi flashed, completely unexpected...Bourinator, his first 8a flash.
On the end of the day he stepped, actually quite cold, into the route. He decided not to climb back in the start as it was quite an difficult boulderproblem. So, he went just in one all the way :)
I yesterday finally climbed Bibendum, 7b+ and now up for the 7c...or maybe even more...

Alain Chevallier

Last week we had another restday, and another...and another...and on one of them I found this guy reparing weapons for the locals. Tiny little shop, harly any light, and still beautiful to see how open everything is, no locs, closed doors, just a little social place with him and one of his friends on a visit.

The weather is really hot, we are hot and after " days of climbing in Céuse we're also amazingly P-U-M-P-E-D
We really have to get used to the long limestone routes again and that will take a couple of weeks I think, but after that I can't wait to hang in for example Bourinator or something like that :)
Here some picca's of first Ailefroide bouldering and then climbing and swinging in the route Bibendum in Céuse.
