Sea kayaking was my passion; I thought nothing can top that, the peace, being one with the motion of the sea, watching the sun set from the beach or kayak, sleeping to the sound of the ocean .... until my first climbing day in Aug. 2004... <p> Everything changed since that day, an unstoppable passion is part of my life now. I love the feeling of rock, the motion of moving across it, like a dance, stubbornly ignoring gravity. It is a beautiful sport, combines so many aspects: balance, technique, physical and willpower, calmness of the mind, being outdoors, meeting awesome and like-minded people. I can't imagine ever stopping it. </p><p> The people truly are a big part of it. It is so motivating to work on projects and boulder problems together. Never forget the fun, though, and the lazing about, the memories of past trips, and planing for the next one. </p><p> Speaking of trips, I went on my first climbing trip to France this spring. A friend and I checked out Buoux, Gorges du Tarn, and Céüse. What amazing places those were. Tarn was great, because we met 4 english people we spend the rest of the trip with. See, the people make all the difference. Céüse was just mind-blowing, if you don't mind the hike up to the cliff. "Realization" .... all I can say is big respect to those who try climbing it. Buoux ... well ... too many people ran over the routes already. It is very polished, even in the higher grades. </p><p> I started learning how to lead there, and have since done some nice sport routes. Trad climbing is next, but I haven't done too much of that yet, leading anyway. I try and second almost everything, though, am eager to learn, train to get better, watch experienced climbers, learn from their styles and listen to their advice. </p><p> So anyway, that's me, dedicated and always looking for new climbing friends with the same passion ... </p>

  If you're in the area I'm more than happy to show you some great climbing spots. It would be best if you are able to lead trad climbs, or my climbing partner comes along as well.
