Vor der eindrucksvollen Kulisse des Mont Blanc traten am vergangenen Wochenende rund 150 Athletinnen und Athleten zum ersten Lead Weltcup des Jahres an. Neben der Weltcup-Wertung ging es in Chamonix auch um den Titel des Europameisters im Lead 2015.
Because of the demands of top-level competition climbing, athletes who focus on this discipline often have relatively few hard ascents under their belts on real rock. Ramón Julián is a notable exception to this rule.
In this episode we accompany Ramón Julián to Fussimanya, a bouldering sector near Savassona, where Ramón will show us how he trains on boulders. Normally he prefers climbing routes, but this special boulder problem, "Boix boig" (8b+), is great for his training.
Find out how climbing champion Ramón Julián trains at his local gym with an intense climbing regimen and beastly workout schedule. He explains how he manages to train against his weaknesses, as well as how he maintains long hours while listening to his body.
For the first time in his career, two time world champion and two time European champion Ramón Julián sits down in front of the camera to talk about his career, his training, his outlook on competition, and how to live a life based on climbing.
