Traveling around working, you realise the world works in a very clumsy way. Humans are crass useless things, we seem to have a propensity to just breath, and get fat. My least favourite places are airports and city motorways, I am lucky that its not Aleppo, or Gaza I'am zipping around, but still Iam in despair.
Romain Desgranges from Chamonix won the mens big event, it's only his second gold in about 14 years of comps, but if you have ever seen his precise flawless technique, and his never ending stamina you might be surprised that the boy can't walk on water.
Adam Ondra lost, shock horror. Adam the Ondra, the incredible guy that he is, has been climbing outside! Not the best things for plastic, golds come through working plastic! Olypians lookout, you are doomed to plastic prison, and hell. How did we turn a great wonderful pastime like climbing rocks, and mountains, into an indoor prison hell of urban hamsters?
Adam Ondra is off to the big stone soon, he has his eyes set on Salathea, and Dawn Wall. That's why he has been outside climbing, El Cap is decidedly outside. Dawn Wall has supposed 9a pitches on it, and is therefor possibly the hardest "Trad route" in the world. We will see, or Ondra will see for us. Good luck Adam, and congrats on winning the bouldering, no mistakes there eh?
Anak Verhoven won the girls comp, she is a fervent Christian, and climbs for Jesus. It seems to be working for her, I might try it.
