In 2008, a friend of mine advised me to try a V6 boulder grade. On the first reaction I thought he made a bad joke but after to check holds and the line I was thinking : why not to try?
One week later after finishing some previous boulders I went to try " Rumeurs Vagabondes" V6. This boulder is located in La Capelle's place not so far the romania small town : Uzes.
I wear my climbing shoes and slowly going to found the beta for my body. As you know if you already some previous posts I don't any force in my forearms. It means the story changes all the boulder.
After couple tries on the hardest movement I was starting slowly to believe I could get a chance and to climb my first V6 or 7a for european grade.
Day after day and week after week, at least, 2 months I visited and I tried a lot this amazing and exhaustive boulder. and one day I got with a miracle to ascent all the Rumeurs Vagabondes -V6.
It was a big surprising and I could not realize I climb my first 7a which for me could be compared with a 8a for the regular climber. Even if the comparison doesn't work so simply like this but just for your understanding it is faster to explain like this
Well! After 6 years to travel like crazy in all around the world with my @Evolution Tour journey and the Wild One documentary I needed a break to refund myself on the performance.
The 3rd janurary 2015, I went without expectations to re-climb this line. The same process, I tried to remember all the hardest movement and slowly I fell in the shape.
After 3 hours to spend on this boulder, I got again the end.
Finally! I am not a finished climber, not getting old at all and I see news and others perspectives.
To end the topic I propose the movie about this problem that I never get a chance to film before.
