We are absolutely speechless on the success of today’s climbing meetup with Women’s Climbing Collective! Today’s event gathered together 25+ women ranging from seasonal climbers to brand new climbers for a packed two hours of climbing. We ended things a bit differently today by hosting a conversation about gender bias and equity with Chicago Foundation for Women. Thank you to everyone that showed up despite the gloomy weather. We are so excited to continue to build such an amazing community of female climbers. See you next Saturday for our March meetup from 10 AM - 12 PM!
“Il Cubo” (Italian for “the cube”) is a rather unknown big area of boulders in the woods at the bottom of the valley, right off a village called Arnad. We had no topos so had to randomly choose what to get on. Most problems are sandbags anyway 😁
Had the time to warm up and pick a couple projects before it got too chilly, then we just went off to bouldering indoors instead 🤪

A team of climbers ascends Aoraki / Mount Cook in New Zealand. The climb is quite difficult, and a fatality occurs almost every year.

Conheci o Davi a pouco mais de 1 ano atrás na @ubtescalada. Ele mora no RJ, trabalha em Brasília, estava buscando melhorar sua escalada e otimizar o pouco tempo que tem disponível para treinar, então me procurou para que eu o ajudasse com isso. Na época, ele escalava 5° grau e estava ralando pra mandar 6° grau.
Hoje acordei com a notícia de que ele tinha encadenado seu primeiro 7c, a via Montanha Verde, no Platô da Lagoa. Essa é uma via bem atlética e com agarras pequenas, num estilo oposto ao que o Davi estava acostumado a escalar, o que deixa explícita a sua evolução e a importância de um treinamento sistematizado.
Fiquei feliz demais com essa notícia, como se fosse eu quem tivesse completado essa escalada.
Davizera, parabéns pela cadena!
Obrigado pela confiança e por me fazer parte desse processo.
Que venham os 8°'s!!
