"Impossible" LOVE ? ;-) New film with Adam Ondra

I think the most important is being "mad" to climbing.
You have to really love climbing, otherwise you will give up with climbing after some time.”
Adam Ondra

Is this love possible just for ... Adam Ondra (and other superstrong climbers) or for us normal climbers too ?
For all of us ?

What do You think ?

Even if You work 12 hours a day, have a family to manage and so many problems to solve.

Even if You are 13 years old, no car, no money.

If both of You climb, and not so easily, no more than 6as.

Is it possible for You too to really love climbing ?

"Trigga Nigga" 25 from Jerome Pink on Vimeo.

In October 2009 I realised a long goal of mine whilst on Chemo, to climb the Nowra classic "Trigga Nigga" 25. I picked this climb because it required me to work on both my endurance and strength, the two aspects of my climbing most damaged by the chemo therapy. At the time I chose TN as a goal I was having trouble walking up flights of stairs so in the end it was an incredibly challenging goal. In the end I suspect the process was much more important for me than the actual achieving of the goal. So enjoy the video, and as always comments encouraged.

Sometimes love is to build a whole world just to share a single little part of it.

" The more I travel the more I meet people and the more I hear about bitchiness, about people who don’t like certain other people.
There are a variety of reasons for why people don’t like other people, and it’s a fact of life that not everyone is going to get on really well with everyone else, but in climbing people really seem to take a dislike to one another.
Perhaps it’s because they are all so passionate about rock climbing and this is what they have disagreements about, but I think it’s a bad way to be.
In my mind, it would be better if everyone could act as a positive support for everyone else and encourage them to improve, adapt, and push things forward.
That probably sounds far too idealistic but I’m sure things could be more like that than they currently are.
The one theme that unites all the top climbers I meet is their love for rock climbing.
They just want to go out and climb.
They don’t really care about 8a.nu, internet chat, magazine reports or chatting BS about climbing, they just love rock climbing.
They couldn’t care less if they never reported anything else they did or if no one knew what they had climbed, because they really only do it for themselves.
I’m sure there are exceptions to this, but for the most part people choose this lifestyle because it’s what they love.
I also think the general public are too quick to judge the achievements of the top guys without really knowing or understanding anything about them.
This is also a great shame because I’m sure if people were to know these guys personally they would have a completely different opinion.
I’m not guilt free, I realise that I’ve been part of this in the past, but it’s something I realised was a bad mistake and have tried to learn from the mistake.
I’m not judging anyone or trying to make moral statements about anyone’s opinion.
I just want to encourage everyone, avoid slagging people off, try to remain positive and continue to love rock climbing.
I hope that everyone else can do the same because loving rock climbing is the glue that binds us all together. "

27cragsclimbervoice8a and many others are amazing sites, but sometimes, expecially if you worked a lot to envision, bolt, clean routes or boulders, you want to monetize a little your efforts.

9b can help you in this aim.


As you can see here, in 9b there are many " topo groups ".


You can add a discussion in every "topo group".

In your discussion you can edit and publish your own climbing topoguide, as a "paywall", a "destination page", requiring climbers their payment by credit card or paypal to access and read, even on SMARTPHONES (iphones, android phones, ...)


After having paid, climbers can see, save and print your climbing topoguide.


In this discussion you can add:


1) PHOTOS regarding one specific SECTOR (of routes or bouldering, dws lines)


a) "PHOTO topo":

It's very easy to edit a photo topo:

- upload a photo of a rock in a topo group discussion

- drawn the lines

- write names and grades (an example…
