  • Kamasutra Flash

    Drytooling Kamasutra Flash sounds like a ‘different’ thing. But no, it’s just ‘iceclimbing’. Really. How to kill a Nomic iceaxe/aka Kamasutra D13+ flash! Iseo, Italy just days after the Worldcup in Saas Fee. Before the last stage at Rabenstein we wanted to relax, climb and enjoy the Italian sun. We need to. I picked up the cold …

We missed the first two competitions; the first which was …

  • Worldcup 2013 and 2014 Olympics

    …and there it is. The 2013 Worldcup schedule. The UIAA announced the schedule for 2013 with some new things and some old things. Old: Worldcup in Busteni (why?) I’m surprised. If you read my post about the last Worldcup there, you can understand why I’m ‘slightly’ surprised. (See here, here and here) New: Worldcup in Rabenstein (Italy). …
