March - Spring Break, Red River Gorge, Kentucky at Miguel's April - Climbing Competition: Bouldering Garden Comp June - Climbing in the Alps:
France, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, Austria
Spain - Es Pontas off the coast of Spain's Island, Mallorca. An arch of stone with deep water routes and a huge rope swing! Very nice. Spain offered a wealth of climbing opportunities along its Eastern coastline. The mountainous western coast line of Mallorca is heaven for the climber who is looking for the very steep. A quickly changing landscape will look like a village in southern France than the Verdon Gorge to tree line hikes along the continental divide and then coast line cliffs towering a mile over the pine tree forested coasts of the Mediterranean waters.
Switzerland - The Eiger is a massive wall of limestone. Lots of late season snow this year but the area offered rewarding summits, sport crags, and high altitude boudering. The Matterhorn is a very large vertical pile of loose blocks. Coming down is something to consider if you think about gaining this summit.
Germany - Climbing crags seemed much like areas I climbed in the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico during Feb of this year. The limestone is very pocketed, much like many other steep Euro crags, and force you to watch your step when walking along the top of the cliffs.
Austria - Steep Alp crags and a great varity of rock types sits just above and near one of my favorite crag areas visited during my 2010 Euro climbing trip, Arco.
Northern Italy - Arco, a small town near lago di Garda, known as "the Garden Lake" and sport climbing mecka of the southern Alps turned out to be more than I expected. I spent one full day deep water soloing on a vertical slab located on the north-eastern rim of the lake. Good times!
Southern France - Ceuse is an exposed dome of limestone on top of a hill top. The rolling mountains of this area offer many other enjoyable outdoor sport opportunities and adventures. The area reminded me of the Black Hills of South Dakota. On the south side of these hills is the famous Verdon Gorge. These are some the must see stops for climbers visiting southern France.
