  • ❰ ICE CLIMBING ❱ Did you know that in Cogne Valley there are over 150 waterfalls of ice that become a paradise for ice climbers! #wearepangaea
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
📷 // @marc_daviet // It is said to be one of the best spots Europe to ice-climb. The Cogne Valley in Italy is a great playground for those who want to be adventurous in the winter. It works in a similar way to rock climbing but involves a pair of technical ice axes and more clothing to bear the cold!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
➽ A popular saying among ice climbers is that “if you can put a nail in with a hammer, you can go ice climbing” so if you're done with skiing or snowboarding or just looking for a new winter adventure, ice-climbing in Italy could be an amazing shout for you! Of course, a mountain guide is always recommended when doing these super adventurous sports!

  • A coach I’ve started working with asked me to write down the things I love most about climbing. It was a really fun and positive exercise 😊. Here are mine...what would your reasons be? -Community and socialising: I love the shared endeavour of climbing, the mutual protection and teamwork and it is such a lovely, supportive, happy community of people. -The post climb/trip high: Sometimes when I'm in the mountains I think ' why am I doing this - I'm never doing this stupid s**t again' and within 10 mins of getting down I'm already buzzing and thinking about the next trip. -Connection with nature: I always feel so alive (apart from first thing in the morning on an alpine start :) when I'm out in the hills and mountains and climbing just exaggerates that feeling. It's all about the Alpenglow :) -Building a complex pyramid of skills: For me all of the sport, trad, ice, mountaineering, courses is adding up to an ambition to go really high and I love that feeling of putting all those disciplines together. -Self mastery: I'm only human and I don't like getting really scared :) But when I work on my mind, break the task down, get it under control and get through it the sense of personal self satisfaction and worth is huge -Intellectual: Climbing (particularly trad and apline) really is a 'thinking persons sport' - complex equipment, forces and factors to learn and manage. I get a great satisfaction from understanding how things work and putting them into application to keep myself and others alive in a hostile environment..after all..."gravity never takes a day off" :) -The puzzle of the route: I love the attempts to figure out a way up and unlock the route when at first it seems impossible -Diversity: There are so many different 'climbing' activities that it feels like a sport with such breadth and depth - if one aspect becomes dull, or as the seasons change, there is always another. -Global travel: It's a sport than you can take anywhere and provides a great reason to go to some very cool places and experience culture, language, food, art as well as climbing

  • A tech tip a day keeps the ouchies away🤓
.
When we started up the wall it was -25 but at the top of pitch 2 the sun was already providing its strength. It was harder to build this anchor in this little hole that I found and I took the extra time to add some integrity to the anchor. .
What did I do that most people don’t? What do you like about this anchor and what don’t you like? What the heck is going on? And..... What could I have done better if we were descending from this point?

🇮🇹 Andare ad arrampicare su una bellissima cascata di ghiaccio e poi entrare al lavoro alle 14.30: la sensazione è strana. Per diverse ore vivi in uno strano stato di sospensione. Sei lì, nel momento presente, la scalata cattura tutta l'attenzione. Poi all'improvviso realizzi che prima di tutto sei fortunato a poter essere lì, ma anche che presto dovrai fuggire via, che hai una precisa scadenza, che devi viaggiare verso valle veloce e lasciarti assorbire dalle diverse responsabilità del nostro mondo grigio in cui dominano divinità assurde che nulla hanno a che fare con quelle che animano il nostro spirito più profondo. Il contrasto e al contempo la correlazione tra gli opposti turba i miei pensieri. La gabbia e la libertà convivono e si relazionano. A volte mi chiedo quale sia il vero senso di tutto questo. / 🇬🇧 Climbing a beautiful icefall in the morning and going to work at 14.30: weird sensation. For some hours you live in a kind of suspension. You're there, you seize the moment, climbing needs all of your attention. But suddenly you realize that even if you're lucky for this opportunity, you have a deadline. You soon have to run away and responsibilities of our gray world catch you. The gods of this world are so far from the ones who move our deepest spirit. Between the opposites there is contrast and a link too. Freedom goes with the cage. Sometimes I wonder what is the sense of this all.
