Loaded with power

Another one from my list is done :) We're having such good and intense days here in Hueco. Looking forward to everything that's coming up!

It's so good to be back in Hueco!

Here is a short movie from Purple Flowers, the V9 roof I did yesterday. I think the next 5 weeks we're planning to stay here are gonna be gooooood! Time to crush!

The amazing Joshua Tree

The famous Joshua Tree

 The idyllic campground in the middle of boulders. Want some coffee?
Slab master

G in one of the classics Stem Gem V4. The hardest V4 I've ever tried. There are no holds and so many ways to do it. Awesome!

Diary of a dope fiend V8. It's quite a hike to find this hidden roof. But it's really worth it. The view is awesome and the problems are really good. It begins with a crack, goes over these hueco's and ends with slopers... had to fight hard at the end!
 Another classic with four stars Streetcar named desire V7. A corner with bad feet and a dyno at the end...still trying.

Beautiful sunset with Joshua Trees

Packing bags...

...for a trip to the States! In a week I'll be flying over the Atlantic to San Francisco CA!
Me and G, two crash pads, one big car, 68 days, from California to Texas...and endless number of amazing boulders...sweeeeet :)

We're planning to visit some new places we haven't been before. That's why we're flying to California where we'll first go to Joshua Tree for a few days and then drive to Texas.

Back to Hueco where we have some unfinished business to do! After spending one month there last January I said to myself, I really had to go back one day! I had a finger injury back then and I was just getting stronger when it was time to leave. So I left Hueco thinking about the problems I wanted to do like Loaded with power, Dark Age, Pourple Flowers,...

When it'll get hot in Hueco we'll go to Bishop. A new place to explore and new projects to find. Can't wait!!!

I'll keep you posted... but 'till then here's a bit taste of a desert: from Strongfinger Productions - our last trip to Hueco Tanks:

Happy new year 2011

For some it's a new beginning, for others it's just another cold day...:)
I wish you all a lot of beautiful and crazy climbing days in 2011!!!
