[VIDEO] Climbing Trip to the Mythic Cliff with Colette McInerney

This summer came together much like most of the best things do, completely unplanned. Colette had been blabbing pretty insistently about a girl’s trip to Ceuse in an attempt to "put things out into the universe", you know concentrating her "energy" and all that.

Arnaud Petit Climbs The Forgotten Trad Classic “Natilik” in Ceüse

Céüse is arguably the most well-known sport climbing cliff in the world and its walls boast some of the hardest routes ever climbed. With such a plethora of hard, bolted climbs on offer, it's easy to understand why visiting climbers choose to focus on these rather than the crag's more esoteric classics.

[VIDEO] The Story Behind Jonathan Siegrist's Send Of Biographie/Realization (9a+/5.15a)

Jonathan Siegrist came to Europe with a few goals in mind. One of the foremost was to climb the world's first 9a+ in Céüse, France. He knew from the start that it wouldn't be easy. Over the course of four weeks he worked the route and prepared himself mentally and physically by keeping his hype high, eating lots of hard-boiled eggs, and enjoying the French countryside. He was rewarded for his perseverance when he became only the eight person in history to send the line first imagined by Jean-Christophe Lafaille and first actualized by Chris Sharma - Biographie/Realization 5.15a/ 9a+.

[VIDEO] Chris Sharma is “Back in Ceüse”

Chris Sharma hat im französischen Top-Klettergebiet Ceüse viele Spuren hinterlassen und mit der "Biographie" nicht nur einen persönlichen Meilenstein geschaffen. Nun ist er "Back in Ceüse" - begleitet von einem Kamerateam, um wieder einmal eine Neutour einzurichten und sich daran zu versuchen. Schöne Bilder und eine tolle Dokumentation, wie Chris sich einer neuen Route im Vorstieg nähert. Einzig der Helm oder vielmehr ie Art des Helms, den Chris beim Bohren im Vorstieg trägt, irritiert dann doch ein wenig und das liegt nicht nur an der Farbe...
