climbing
In climbing I do things that I enjoy and want to do not the ones that are currently in fashion.

Andreas Bindhammer about St. Anger
During Easter Andreas Bindhammer put up a new route in Arco, Italy. He called the route St. Anger and graded it 8c+/9a. In the interview he is talking about his latest accomplishment, the preparations for it and the next goals for 2008.

Ines Papert on Flying Circus
"I had Flying Circus in mind since 2005. Unfortunately the ice did not fully come down over the overhang. I decided to wait for the perfect conditions, so I had a chance of onsighting the route. Also, since I dropped out of competition circle it is much easier to be in the right place in the right time."

Ueli Steck on the Eiger Record Climb
If a route is faster to climb solo then you have to climb it solo. If you try the Nose, is it definitely faster in a team. For me personally a team record does not count at all. It's just the fastest time that counts…

Iker Pou: 7 Walls on 7 Continents
In 2003, Iker and Eneko Pou, began their amazing quest „7 Walls, 7 Continents”.  It is a challenge that no other mountain climber has taken before.  The mission was to climb seven toughest routes up seven toughest walls on seven continents. The brothers completed the task last December.

Marko Prezelj Interview - Part 1
In the eighties climbing was very well organized in Slovenia. If you wanted to take part in an expedition organized by our association you had to prove yourself, show your skills in the mountains. It was not like making promotion in the media like it’s now. Now you can fake it, then you couldn’t. There was no cyberworld, so your staff was good or not.

Lee Cossey on El Cap Climbs
"Freerider is the perfect first free route on El Cap. Each of the 35 pitches is beautiful and there are so many different styles of climbing on the route from technical slabs to boulder problems, pumpy corners and, of course, wide cracks! This route is within the abilities of many climbers and I was surprised that there were not more people out there."

Alex Huber on Pan Aroma
The nature of the rock is something unique. As soon as you start changing it, it's shit. My understanding of climbing is to see a natural obstacle, just take on the challenge and climb it. If you fail to do it - try again, try to get better or leave it for others

Josune Bereziartu - Part I
It’s normal that when a woman climbs a route, some climbers lose respect for that route. They think: if a woman can climb that route, why not me? Maybe it’s not so hard? Maybe I can do it, too. That way of thinking is deep-rooted in our society, not only in the climbing community.

David Lama on a Malaysian Trip
We didn´t really know what to expect from this trip. In the end we found a paradise for every climber. There are so many incredible rocks that you can’t climb them in your whole life! It was really unbelievable and we had to decide very well which of the walls we are gonna bolt and which we´ll leave for others, who will hopefully climb them soon.

Andreas Bindhammer on La Rambla
La Rambla is visually attractive and athletic challenge. On May 2, 2007 Andreas Bindhammer managed the 4th ascent of the route, the day after he climbed Broadway 8c+/9a (formerly 9a) after 3 attempts. Andreas Bindhammer tells us how he managed to climb one of the hardest routes in the world.

Bernd Zangerl: Why Bouldering
It’s the BEST. It’s about power, it’s about focus... You can force your body to the limit. You can try the hardest possible moves... And it’s the fun of bouldering, hanging around with people I like, travelling to areas I want to see, trying projects which I am interested in, drinking cappuccino and talking about the only important thing.

Ueli Steck on His Alpine Solos and a New Route on GII
For me soloing light and fast makes sense. There are big faces where soloist can be faster than a team. So the situations when you can be more effective than a party of two people are what I am really interested in. Climbing such routes as 'Bonatti' on Matterhorn makes more sense. I am sure you can solo this route totally safe in one day. This is just a step further…

Robert Jasper on Yeti
The Eiger North Face is a very important part of my private climbing history. For me it´s the best and the biggest face in the Alps, and with very dramatic history.
