    "When I was asked to make a video about Dani Andrada, at first I was super psyched and was looking forward to shooting it. Then, I realized that I had never filmed sport climbing, or even taken my camera on a rope (except to film a highball) and that I would not have time to try even once before going there. So I went to Catalunya not knowing what to except and quite nervous about screwing up while on the rope... Now that I am back, I only want to try shooting routes again! If you are looking for a pure action video, this is not what this is. This is more of a 'video illustrated interview'. If you want to know more about Dani and his motivations, you are at the right place :-) Dani has a strong reputation and all I can say is that he is as motivated as you would expect him to be. He is either climbing or bolting, or doing both in a day. He just never stops. And on top of that he is a genuine good person spending most of his non climbing time rebolting older routes to keep Siurana safe. Weather was not kind with us, having fog, rain and very strong winds but it gave us some very intense tries in Siurana (sorry for the shakiness in La Rambla but I could not fight such wind...). And like Dani says, if you can do it in bad conditions, you will feel stronger when conditions get better..." - Haroun Souirji Music licensed from WithEtiquette.com and MelloMusicGroup.com PS: the video was shot and edited in a very wide cinema aspect ratio. This is a test to see how well it could fit climbing. I couldn't stress enough that it looks best on a real TV so if you have a nice, big flat screen at home, download the movie (link on the right) and watch it there! -------- For the filmmakers out there.

        • Enzo Oddo Sends La Rambla 9a+ (5.15a) at Siurana, Spain


          from Prana Living / Added

          16-year-old French phenom Enzo Oddo has climbed yet another 5.15 with his repeat of La Rambla original in Siurana, Spain. The route was first climbed before Oddo was even born by Alex Huber to a stopping point 3/4 up the wall, and it was subsequently extended by Ramón Julián Puigblanque. The accepted grade for this route these days seems to be 5.15a, but Rock and Ice has a good recap of this history of the route including Huber’s thoughts on how the grade of this route and many others has been inflated over the years: “It’s a fact that La Rambla increased in grade from 8c+ (5.14c) to 9a+ (5.15a). Often people believe this is due to the route extension, but in reality the difficulties do not change substantially with this extension.” ~ClimbingNarc.com

                    This is a Deadpoint Magazine piece withTom Bolger from the UK. Tom took a day to shoot this route, which at the time was one of his hardest. The very physical style and amount of difficult routes is what separates this crag from anything else.

                      Nueva serie de Lippi Outdoor, que acompaña a nuestro embajador Tomás Ravanal en la búsqueda del primer 9A+ en Chile. Episodio 1: España, Minastirith Direccion: Benjamin Camus / ACECINE Sinopsis: Septiembre marcó un hito en la carrera deportiva de Tomás. En Rodellar, España, encadenó la ruta llamada Minastirith, que es un 8c+, durísimo, que tiene pasos de buolder. La primera parte consiste en alrededor de 5 metros aproximados de techo, donde se concentra el grado, para salir y continuar por un 7b, con chorrera que no permite descanso. En total, la ruta se extiende en alrededor de 15 a 20 metros. Esta es primera vez en la historia que un chileno encadena dicho grado fuera del país. El primer y único 8c+ logrado anteriormente, fue también encadenado y propuesto por Tomás uniendo dos rutas en Las Chilcas (sector El Cubo) “La Pura Puntita” 8a+ para continuar por Contacto (8c) en 2010. Minastirith fue trabajada por Tomás primero en 2011. Junto a los pegues que dio este año, en total la habría intentado unas 18 veces. Y como si fuera poco, al día siguiente Tomás encadenó un 8a+ de 35 metros a vista en el sector de Surgencias, Rodellar. Texto: www.chileclimbers.cl/ www.lippioutdoor.com
