It’s not all #psicobloc here in #mallorca this route is a magical journey through a wind carved roof. It’s called Wonder Woman and this new cliff was developed by @kerstin_helbach_mallorca and Armin and son Batman.

Yangshuo

#throwback #tbt back to 2005 when I met up with my dear friend @oliviahsu plus hubby @simoncarteronsight who had already been in town for a week getting the the suss on things in #yangshuo. My first morning there and hubby hits me up with a special request, “can you blast up this grade 31 quickly this morning?”, because he’d worked out an angle on this beautiful piece of rock and it was the first – and possibly last – blue bird day of the trip.
I thoroughly enjoyed attempting the route and needless to say that Simon nailed the shot once again. Even after all these years I’m still amazed at Simon’s ability to visit a new climbing area, eek out some special angles and come away with a swag of high end shots that truly capture the place.

The climb is Nine Deep, One Shallow (5.13d) at Banyan Tree Crag.

Microcosm

By | Instagrams | No Comments

Perfection is what I strived for as a young gymnast. But, thankfully life, and the way you move through it, is not judged with a score out of ten. So, I soon dropped that ideal. I didn’t, however, drop my pursuit of pushing myself – physically and mentally – into realms that gymnastics could not offer. Gymnastics made me scared; climbing gives me courage.

The moments when my body is performing at its maximal capacity, while my mind is entirely immersed in the task at hand, are moments of perfection to me. These moments of flow are what keep me exploring for the next ultimate line.
Words written by me for the book #rockclimbingdownunder. The photo is of me crimping on credit cards while climbing the stunning line of Microcosm (31) in the Wolgan Valley several years back when I experienced these moments of flow. How privileged we are to experience such freedom. #tbt.
