Climbing The Americas (Road Trip) – vlog #2

Climbing The Americas (Road Trip) – vlog #2


So even though we are without climbing gear
basically, except for my harness and my climbing shoes, just totally randomly we bumped into
my friends and we’re going climbing! Book of Love, another amazing 13d. Book of Hate. Book of Hate? Oh! So it’s not book of Love, Book of Hate. 13d/8b like stemming 30 – 40 meters. It’s amazing, haven’t been there yet. So the first time I put the shoes on I need
to get it with the plastic bag in because it’s more slippery and you get it in. The second time I get in, it’s already a little
bigger, the shoes are warmer and it’s ok. A soon as the shoes are really tight the plastic
bag also prevents from like scratching your toes from above. It’s less painful, and definitely very recommended. The leading climber climbs with the tag line? Yeah. On his harness? I didn’t know how to turn. Like also with the left wall being so steep,
sometimes I was like.. only my foot cut loose and I was standing like this and it almost
felt like resting. Like I could be resting the feet. It was close, I just.. this one started
sliding, I needed to chalk up my back. I just had to make the transition from like
chimneying down to the stemming and I couldn’t find the transition. Unfortunately, it will be dark very soon and
we don’t have a headlamp so if I wanna climb I need to give it one try now. Well an amazing first day! I’m really happy to have done it. On the second try, I really didn’t have any
time to rest, especially for the calf it was a problem but I was just sprinting my way
up to the top and I didn’t run out of my power in my legs, and I was just stemming and maybe
trying to spoil the power also from my arms. But you can’t really get pumped on your arms,
but you can easily get pumped in your calves and that’s what really counts. Be happy!

    I like the idea of the road trip, climbing various walls, but this kind of video needs more climbing shots. Just an opinion.
