The hardest part about climbing at your limit is balancing the emotions of wanting something with such overwhelming intensity and also somehow finding the strength to let it go and be free from the pressure. I found some kind of middle path today on ‘La Planta de Shiva’ 9b. It was an absolute battle to the death and I will never forget it. Thank you so much to @dustygene @neelyquinn @seth_lytton @escharas21 (@shainasavoy from afar!) and the amazing people here in Andalucia for the support and the laughs and the motivation! As with every emotional send, I leave a piece of my heart at the chains!! Photograph from the incredibly talented @javipec Venga!

NO MORE FLIGHTS ️ Ever since I remember 9b was there on my life goals list. 2018 was planned to be the year to make the dream come true - I spent around 15 days trying “Fight or Flight” but in the end I wasn’t even able to climb it in two parts. The goal was faraway. This winter I decided to focus on my weakest points and together with my coaches we’ve set a serious training program. From the first day of this trip I felt a big difference in the route and a little later it turned out I can actually climb it until the last crux - the famous dyno. The dyno itself shot me down for a few days. Had to change the mindset from “trying” to “doing”. The pressure kicked in. The day came. I felt fresh and strong, motivated right enough. The conditions were prime, I was ready. The try was unique, I took risks and felt confident the whole way up, went all in at the dyno and suddenly it was over. So many years of training & dreaming closed in such a short period of time. Let’s live in the moment. Thank you @honngy , @lumartinez_93 , @jorgverhoeven, @patxiusobiaga_pucseries for sharing the passion for the project and @chris_sharma for giving us the opportunity to test ourselves. Thank you #MotionLab - Maciej Oczko and Magda Terlecka for commitment and help through all these years. Thank you my @julkastankiewicz & family for believing in me. Thank you Korona crew for motivation. Thank you @wojtekozakiewicz for the photo. • • • • @patagonia_climb @patagoniaeurope @scarpa_pl @scarpaspa @iurapl @blackdiamond @sublimeclimbing @wingschalk #climbing #climbing_is_my_passion #climbing_lovers #climbing_worldwide #climbinglife #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #timetoclimb #climb #climber #wspinanie #wspinaczka #wspinaniepl #arrampicata #klettern #outdoorclimbing #escalada #escalade #rocks #rockclimbing #sportclimbing #doyouclimb #climbingrocks #iloooveit #grippedmagazine #rockandice #climberslife #climbingisbliss #training #wingschalk

First ascent of “Black Mamba” 5.14b done...! This one was a proper fighter and had us both wearing through a pair of boxer shorts to get the FA of a really unique 50m boulder-route hybrid. The years of exploring down in the caves, still presents surprises and nothing can be taken for granted! If you thought one pair of gloves was enough, think again. If you assumed that tissue paper padding was for puppies, you’re wrong. If you wondered what it’s like doing the Angry Pirate Finish at the end of 40m of 5.14 pump-fest, then you know where to head . I’ll leave you with a quote from @petewhittaker01 . . “On Tom’s go, I knew he was on the way to a successful ascent when I started to see he was losing his boxer shorts...” #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #tradclimbing #crackisback

Bürs -- what a magical place! I'm floating on cloud nine, so full of bubbly joy at the moment after managing a personal best yesterday “Nobody is Perfect” (8c). I surprised myself by sending it on my third day of working the route. I finished this great day with a send of „Have Fun“ (8a+) • I had the pleasure to try the 8c for the first time with the master of Bürs @thomasachermann. Special thanks for the inspiration and being the best coach over the last 10 years! Thanks as well to my dad @clklaus for always supporting me and giving me the sending catch (and always freezing your ass off in Bürs️). Last but not least to my best IG post inspiration and proofreader @enchaine.avec.jonshen ! • Here is a snap of a neighbouring route (Prinz Albert) from last year. @mantleclimbing @kollektivsports @scarpa_de

Last day best day!!! So psyched to have climbed “Heritage” V14/ 8B+ in Val Bavona Switzerland !!! I have been pretty out of shape for me and still have a lot of work to do to get back where I was, this is why I didn’t try Heritage for the first few weeks of my trip. I then decided to try it because it was always on my list of climbs I wanted to do and my friends were most psyched for this area. Well I definitely surprised myself when I was falling grabbing the hold at the lip on day 3! This happens 2 times this day with one try on the hold. The last move isn’t suppose to be that hard, but at my height you can’t use the normal left foot hold that makes the move not so bad. Instead I had to use a really high, and too high for me even, foot that made me be in this weird balled up position where then I had to punch to the last hold before the top out. The weather was highs of 17-23C / 62-73F everyday with sun and not much wind at all and the boulder sits down in a area that doesn’t really get air flow. After the “colder” day where I got really close I thought it would happen next day, but the weather got sooo hot and really humid! I was having trouble just staying on the holds and not greasing off. Finally on the last day It because a bit breezy and had some cloud coverage. The high was still at 17-18C/ 62-64F, But the breeze made it way less humid! For my warm up I decided to do the top half one time and then I sat for a few minutes to chill. I looked at the climb and had a special feeling. I didn’t want to overthink it or psych myself out, but I had a feeling where I knew it was time. For my second try I decided to go from the start and the magic happened! I was standing on top of the boulder!!! Thank you @westmountainmedia , @dawoods89 and @robinoleary for coming out all those days I didn’t send for support. I definitely got frustrated from time to time when the first few moves felt hard because of the humidity. @petzl_official @scarpana @frictionlabs

La fête de l'insignifiance 8b+ Great line open by @barefoot_charles and soon repeted by @nicopelorson I spent the last week on it. On the 4th day it went. I am super pleased to have done it before the heat and to have done probably my hardest boulder. It's a tricky and precise boulder with a powerfull top out. I believe the guys for the grade, they used to know pretty well their subject. I still think it's not a hard one and for sure not an extreme 3 mouvs problem. Thanks @tessrgt for the support and the camera Soon 3 days in Innsbruck and a small week in Ceüse. Hopefully the second project will be in good conditions. @le8assure @petzl_official @planetgrimpe @scarpafrance #moutainhardwear #le8assure #teampgofficiel #noplacetofar #accesstheinaccessible
