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

The Last, but Not Least Decade

The short history of rock climbing 2000-2010 - this article will provide only a subjective viewpoint of the sample summary considering respectable, important and special events within rock climbing and all that’s connected with it, in the past years.

Arco Rock Junior 2010

More than 500 young athletes aged 5 -13 from 20 different countries made the ninth edition of the Rock Junior a success. Chris Sharma, one of the greatest climbers of all times, paid homage to the world's biggest youth climbing event.

Humbles stays home - Maja Vidmar onsighted 8b+
She did't like the plan for this season... First world cup competition not until July. Then she should maby climb rocks. After splendid performance on World Millitary Games, where she easily won - Slovenian climber Maja Vidmar packed her bags and went to Spain to measure up to the best world climbers. She did it with a route Humildes pa Casa 8b+, on sight.

Ice Climbing Trip to the Land of the Rising Sun
A trip to a land where you virtually cannot communicate, where the normal course of life is totally different to the one you are used to and where you are furthermore searching for climbable ice is a real adventure. But eventually this is what Markus Bendler, Hermann Erber and I wanted to face up at the end of this ice climbing season.

Why Yosemite? Answers by Top Climbers
There have been times when I have felt ashamed to be a Yosemite climber, and there are times when I feel as if I truly hate the place; but then there are times when I should rather be there than anywhere else in the world. If at times I hate the place, it is probably because I love it so. It is a strange, passionate love that I feel for this Valley.

Chris Sharma Quotes – Zen Thoughts
"It’s ideal to walk the middle line in life. It’s for sure the way of peace. I’m trying every day to find that way. I get lost on the path that from afar seems so simple. Sometimes I’m too lazy and sometimes I hurry so much. I’d like to be right between those extremes."

Andreas Bindhammer on the Czech Sandstone
"If there exists a fairy tale forest, it must be somewhere here. Vegetation is exceptionally lush. Big ferns and soft, succulent lichen surround the way to the crags. It is very warm - around 30°C. We start sweating in this subtropical Czech climate..."

Two Winners of Arco Rock Legends 2007


The winners of the second edition of prestigious Arco Rock Legends that took place on September 7 in Arco, Italy, were Patxi Usobiaga from Spain and Austrian climber, David Lama. Watch the movies with the winners on climbandmore.com!

Petzl Roc Trips
Let me explain what a Petzl Roc Trip is; it’s an international meeting of some of the world’s best rock climbers who are challenged with the “Ultimate Route” and lots of other routes opened especially for the event. We present a unique report on last year's Petzl Roc Trips written by Martina Èufar.

Petzl Roc Trip Kalymnos


As soon as I saw a poster of the Kalymnos Roc Trip on the last day in Millau, a smile crossed my heart, and it was not so difficult to leave Millau, because I knew I would be living my dream one more time this year! - Martina Cufar.

Ice Climbing on the Land of Ice
The name of the land itself – “Iceland” – sounded very suspicious to us ice climbers. Anyway suspicious enough to carry out an investigation and get some information about the ice potential of this land. Equipped with countless emails of the very friendly local climbers we - Markus Bendler, Hermann Erber and I – landed in Reykjavik...

MARKO PREZELJ: GLADIATORS AND CLOWNS D'OR
Trading (virtual) sex with Miss Fame?

Several people criticized me for participating in the Piolet d’Or ceremony this year. None of them were in Grenoble. Joining this circus gave me the opportunity to present my opinion about the award publicly.
