Anonyme a demandé: Why is climbing so addictive? Signed, another climber

It is hard to tell but it really is ! I cannot even think of doing another sport now that I climb, I just wish I had started earlier…

Climbing in the snow… I like the fact that it is possible to climb even when the conditions look terrible ! I sprained my ankle that very day though :-(

Flash-back of this famous arete graded 7b+: L’Etrave. It felt great climbing this boulder, which is a mix between compression, crimps and foot technique. Still need to do the left variant which requires to jump directly to the big hole on the left…gigantic !

Just saw a recent climbing video about bouldering in Annot (Alpes de Haute Provence) that made me want to repost a couple pictures about this amazing spot.

Bas-Cuvier (Fontainebleau) -September 2007
This one is an old picture of me in one of the most famous boulder in the forest, “Le Carnage” Font 7b+. This is one is of the purest line ever that every climber is willing to do when on a trip in Fontainebleau. Photo taken by a german climber met on site, love it !
