Frankenjura again! A short five-day trip, which turned out to be amazing!
I don’t believe that the Frankenjura needs any introduction…
I have been trying “Shadowmover” on and off this year, but it was only at the beginning of June that I made the “click” in my head and really went for it.
“shall I continue?” he asked whilst hanging on a crimp, gobsmacked I yelled: “Yes, you fool! Finish it!”
If you’ve planned a sport climbing holiday and you still want to gain some fitness before you go, then this course might be the right one for you…
Last weekend I climbed Spirit, an old route in Belgium …
Last week I went climbing in Ettringen…
Having all the time in the world is a strange position to be in…
We’re in the last month of our trip and our agendas are slowly filling up with appointments in Belgium, Holland and Germany. Things are coming to an end and somehow that seems alright with me.
Ali-Hulk seemed to be a nice project, so why not invest some time in that…
Yesterday: Benoît Davison – one of Northern-Britain’s finest lads – climbed “Pata Negra”, a true stamina-monster in Rodellar.
A good friend of mine told me I should write about processes. “Nobody cares about raw facts, Micha, it’s all about the process!” Point taken…
Much has happened since my last post! I’ve experienced that resistance doesn’t only exist in theory and we’re doing our very best to destroy our mobile home; hitting walls and balconies (hitting a pedestrian next time)!

Since two weeks we’re on Spanish soil, which means that our sabbatical has finally started!
As mentioned in my previous post; during New Year I was in Spain…
Jawollo! It did it!
Last Sunday I finally climbed “Hobby Extra”, a classic test piece just south of Vienna. It was named after an old brand of strong cigarettes, the Austrian equivalent of Belgium’s “Groene Michel”.
Loads of things happened since my trip to Margalef! I was able to send my boulder-project “Hocus Pocus” and my route-project… My head went crackers!
We’ve been in Margalef during the last two weeks of February. It was great to spend some time in the sun after those arctic first weeks of 2012.
This year I will have spent equally as much time visiting doctors as I have spent in a climbing gym.
As Spanish climbing wisdom says: “It’s more important to feel strong than to be strong.”
Net terug van Rodellar. Veel valt er niet over te zeggen, enkel dat het een fijne en ontspannende trip was.
Het is alweer twee maanden geleden dat ik nog wat deftigs gepost heb. Ik had het gewoon te druk met… klimmen. Maar het moet gezegd worden: sinds m’n trip naar Spanje in januari was de drive wel een beetje weg.

Vanaf toen ging het alleen maar beter, mentaal kreeg ik een enorme boost en twee dagen later lukte wat vorig jaar in april nét niet lukte: “Espacio Tiempo”
