Enjoying the European Football Championships and getting some good climing done: the best of both worlds Wink. Basler Jura was wet, wet, wet! I tried some boulder problems, but just ended up trashing myself on slippery holds. I'm sure the bouldering is great when the conditions are right. I'd never been to the Vosges area in the North-East of France before, but now I can highly recommend it. It has some great red sandstone quarries with beautiful routes.

AlbarracinA climbing partner of mine made a trip to Albarracin in October 2007 and was all praise for this fairly new bouldering area. His description was of a magical forest with huge, red boulder stones and giant roofs, which offered a wide variety of problems and still had near endless potential. So instead of visiting one of the usual bouldering haunts this Spring, I decided to give this area a try.

Having just returned from the Harz, I wanted to post some of the pictures that I took. The Okertal area has really changed since I was there in 2004. The original sectors have been developed to include a range of new problems, and parcours with different difficulties have been added. These make for a nice change of pace and are a good way to get to know the different sectors.

Climbing in Gorges du Tarn, France PDF Print E-mail

Gorges du TarnFrance - For its sheer beauty alone, the Tarn is worthy of a climbing visit. The canyon is covered with lush vegetation and is a sight to behold during spring and autumn, when nature paints the forest in a mix of bright colours, reflected in the swirling currents of the river which cuts its way through the winding valley. I’ve been to the Tarn on three occasions and each time I have noticed an increasing amount of climbers. With over 500 sport routes on top quality limestone, the gorge is fast becoming one of France’s premier climbing locations.

RodellarSpain - Rodellar is probably one of the most impressive climbing sites that I’ve been to in Europe. With over 300 sport routes featuring a variety of breathtaking limestone walls, the canyon is a unique peaceful get-a-way nestled in the Sierra de Guarra, far from the bustle of everyday Spanish life. The climbing here is long and powerful combing a mixture of overhanging crags and deep caves. While at first glimpse daunting, you’ll find yourself in climbing heaven when you experience the quality of the lines that have been put up.
