Football, Climbing Gyms & Dinners

IMG_1659

Scotland gave us a chance to wind down and visit with family; though, we did cram in a few hours of football in the backyard and some indoor rock climbing. We enjoyed our time with Kay, aunt Martha, and Michael and were very happy that we got to catch some time with Martin as well. We were also so glad to meet little Charlie. Don’t worry about walking, Charlie, just focus on that grip strength [...]

A Very Nice Place

We had already had a little taste of Nice – in the rear view mirrorĀ as we navigated the poor street signage on our way to Annot; but we were eager to see what else the little beach city had to offer. We settled in to a hostel called St. Exupery (a step in the right direction!) then took to the streets to find the beachfront where we got a taste of the rocky, crowded beach [...]

The Process

Often, as I’m taking videos of Richard bouldering, I get disappointed at the final result. He just makes it look too easy in the end. And sure, we often climb (as Richard has mentioned) easier grades that are just damn fun to work. So it would make sense that the final video doesn’t rival Dai Koyamada on Dreamtime, but there’s still a part of the story missing in that final video. And so, here’s a [...]

Annot: Good Place

No, no, it is a very good place. A good place for eating and drinking, a good place for Ellen to practice her French, and of course a good place for boulders. Our journey to Annot started with an Internet search. “Trusty Google can you help me find something” “Of course Mr. Hanna. What would you like me to find for you” “The meaning of life! The one answer” “42″ “Huh… Ok how about somewhere [...]

Welcome to beautiful Cresiano, population 500 people, 1000 boulders. A boulderer’s dream, nightmare and promise land. Cresciano is located in the Italian canton of Ticino Switzerland. This is a climbing area legendary in my mind due to the Dosage series of climbing films. We decided that we needed to work off all of the pasta & proscuitto weight we put on in Italy. This town, just north of the Italian border about 1.5 hours from [...]
