Last week I planned a little rock trip with Garro. The idea was to do some emblematic multi pitch and then head to one of those sport climbing meccas that we have in Spain.Read More »Rabadá-Navarro to the mallo fire, Riglos.
We do not need to go to Chamonix for doing alpinism, we can find pillows outside of Japan and there is good crack climbing way closer than in Utah.
Whole weekend of blue skies,dry air and chili temperature? That doesn’t happen a lot in the fjords. Ove and me decided to go to Uskedalen and after a bit of persuasion Roar was in as well. Everything was set.Read More »Climbing in Uskedalen. The Norwegian Yosemite?
Around Bergen we have a lot of rock. In fact, it’s one of the best places I’ve ever been for summer climbing. That is a big statement, especially considering that I’ve lived for over a year in Chamonix, that I do a lot of climbing in Northern Spain and that I travel quite often for climbing.Read More »Bergen: the summer climbing destination.

“I was thinking to perhaps check out an unclimbed trad wall in Modalen if you are up for that. About an hour approach tho, and not sure if we can get up..So adventure :)”
Last week I felt it was about time for multipitch and trad climbing so I called my friend Garro. I must confess that i was slightly afraid, as he always looks for badass activities and I was still healing my injured ankle. The idea was to head to the Zuriza valley, on the border of Navarra and Aragon, and seek climbing activities with alpine ambience, modest difficulties and semi-equipped trad pitches. How could I say no to something like that!Read More »Climbing in Zuriza.
This weekend we were craving a proper ski alpinism activity. Pablo, as usual, achieved to convince us to go for the NW couloir of Forcanada (Malh de Pois).
The hike from the Val d’Arties to the Restanca refuge is of great popularity, especially considering it as a compulsory step of the normal route to Montarto (2833). But watch out on going blindly to Montarto, you may be missing some pearls!
Winters are not what used to be; at least in the Mont Blanc massif. After a night of heavy SE winds and rising temperatures it started to become obvious that we were not going to be able to ski any cool couloir in Grand Montets.
The mont Joly divides the valleys of Saint-Gervais-les-bains and Megève. It is one of the biggest ski areas in the Évasion Mont-Blanc domain and has exceptional views towards the MontBlanc, the aiguilles de Chamonix, but as well towards the Aravis mountain and the Fiz massif. When I used to live in Sallanches, the Mont Joly was one of my favourites ski areas.Read More »Backyard spots: Meeting Mont Joly.
