Climb High! Indoor Climbing Tips!

Climb High! Indoor Climbing Tips! | Adventure Travel destinations | Scoop.it

"Increase your strength. Climbing is both strength and technique dependent. If you do not have a minimum level of strength already, or you are not maintaining the strength that you do have, it may be important to do strengthening exercises"

"Take the steady road to increasing your climbing skills. If you go for the hard climbs before you’re ready, there’s a higher chance of injury, for example, straining a shoulder muscle or even popping finger tendons"

"In a debate between the environment and the economy, the environment seems always doomed to lose. Why?

Because it is assumed that the environment cannot solve pressing social challenges such as employment and poverty alleviation.

But what if it can? In one small country in Central America, the environment has triumphed – not at the expense of the economy – but to its infinite benefit, and that of the 4 million people living there."

Series good foodstuff for the brain- Getu Valley China 1 at coletteloc.com | Adventure Travel destinations | Scoop.it

Well done to Colette, that I do not know, but I love the photos and the storytelling is very very nice. Thanks Colette. I'll come back for more.

"Needless to say this event was a spectacle before even considering its location. Over 50 Petzl Athletes and 500 added international climbers from all over the world met together to climb, chill and party in Getu. There are people I’ve met on Rock Trips, that I would never see otherwise and usually never see again until the next year’s event. But often you meet a new person, swap plans, trade beta and touch base along the way on your next climbing trip. It’s really a very cool thing, and something Petzl has nailed in terms of celebrating what it means to be a climber and traveler. They bring this feeling to a new community in each event, and later display the experience for the entire world through video, photos and blogs. Bravo!"

New Topo – Escalade En Drome Provencale

New Topo – Escalade En Drome Provencale | Adventure Travel destinations | Scoop.it

If your are looking for a climbing destination now, even in the winter and in spring, the "Drôme Provençale" in France is where you need to head. It is a stunning region with millions of possibilities for rock climbing but not only. Cycling (go on ! you can climb up the Mont Ventoux and say "I've done it!"), Water sport (not too far in the Ardêche) but also horse riding are great activities !

 

So if you are heading to the Drôme (and you should!), get this new guidebook about the Climbing in the Drôme Provençale. It is really well done and the english version is amazing even if it is a french "topo" !

The rise of health and fitness travel in Europe

Use your free time wisely !

"Health and Fitness Travel provides active wellness holidays world-wide, and has new healthy breaks for people who are time pressured, burnt-out and in need a quick healthy getaway to recover. Paul Joseph of Health and Fitness Travel says “Preventive health care is the one thing that we can take control of. We should make it our own responsibility to take care of our health, and this is very important especially in times of anxiety and stress where people suffer from lack of sleep and poor diet. We are growing in self-awareness and becoming more conscious of the very limited time we have to look after ourselves. The British are more stressed than most other countries; demanding workloads and longer commutes are eating away at our free time, leaving us feeling unhealthy and in need of a holiday to improve our health and well-being. The average person puts on 4 pounds of weight after every inactive holiday and more of us are now choosing to swap fly and flop breaks for more healthy ones to promote a healthier lifestyle.”

'On Assignment' Follows Photographer to Breathtaking Heights in Yosemite
August 19, 2011 | Filmmaker Renan Ozturk follows photographer Jimmy Chin on an assignment for National Geographic to document a climbing expedition in Yosemite. The jaw-dropping cliffs don't seem to phase either of them, as they dangle from ropes impossibly high up to get just the right shot. Make sure to watch this full screen to appreciate the spectacular landscapes, not to mention the vertigo. Ozturk talks about how he got into filmmaking in an interview with The Atlantic.
