Gorges du Tarn 2015

It was an amazing week, climbing in Gorges du Tarn with Bleau Climbing team during the second week of the Easter holiday.
Beautiful weather, nice people, good atmosphere, a lot of climbing, some personal bests and climbing improvements on both a physical and mental level.

Some impressions :

  • Flashed my first 6a lead climbing on rock : Nique le lière in the Figues au Cul sector.
  • Cooked spaghetti for approx. 50 people with a great team (Peter, Lieven, Hanne, Anneke, Jasper and Tim)
  • Finished a lot of 5s on sight or flashed them.
  • Discovered that my tent isn't waterproof anymore. Luckily there was a bridge that kept part of the camping site dry, so I moved my tent there during the rainy night. Yes, I slept under a bridge. ;)
  • Almost finished a 6a+ on Noir Désir and started working in a very exciting 6c on La Muse, two projects for next time, so I know what I'll be training for the next few months. :)
Great trip, looking forward to the next one!
