Melloblocco 2013 - day 1: China lanterns load the particular heavens

Subject: Melloblocco 2013 - day one: Chinese lanterns fill the sky

 

Saturday 27/04/2013. Last night marked the start of the 10th Melloblocco, the festival that will transform Val di Mello - Val Masino into the world's capital for bouldering and climbing until Sunday 5 May. At the Filorera Centre the program for the next 10 days was announced, as well as the book about Melloblocco before dozens of Chinese lanterns were released into the night sky to the beat of "Kreole Gang".

"Drops fall from the scattered clouds. It's raining onto the burnt tamarisk..." And (at least for now) it's raining at Melloblocco. As forecast, the 10th Melloblocco got off to a wet start. But last night, during the opening ceremony which celebrated the first 10 years of this event, no one seemed to notice. Regardless of the rain over 300 Melloblockers had already arrived in Val Masino. And the usual registration ritual had begun in earnest: Mello (and its T-shirt) are a religion, yes, it really does seem as if some simply can't do without. And it's also for this reason that this year there are 10 days filled to the brim with events: every day holds a new surprise in store. Such as the first one, last night after the opening ceremony, namely that unexpected launch of Chinese lanterns. The sky filled with lights which slowly disappeared out of sight while the meadow was packed with people dancing, improvising to the (outstanding) Kreole Gang – New Orleans Street Band. The atmosphere last night was great... one of tangible, unbound happiness.

Boulder surprises - the boulder problems have been covered. This is just one of the numerous warnings to all climbers: Simone Pedeferri (the route setter and inventor of the Mello problems) announced that the 7 competition problems had been covered. No need to worry therefore, it'll be possible to climb even in the rain. And as soon as it stops raining, the rock dries off very quickly indeed, meaning that you'll be able to climb almost immediately.

Melloblocco today - Marzio Nardi and the climbing scene. Today's program includes two events which discuss climbing and its history. The protagonist is Marzio Nardi, the climber from Turin who with his creativity and his initiatives has played an important role shaping the last 15 years of climbing in Italy. The first appointment is at 18:00, at bar Kundaluna at San Martino (Val Masino) with the book presentation "Marzio Nardi is dead" introduced by the author Elena Corriero which recounts Nardi's life story, the climbers he met and the last 25 years of climbing's evolution, from crags, to bouldering and competitions. The second appointment is "Gravel", a play narrated by Nardi himself which through words, images, videos and music explores his climbing experiences and the last 15 years of rock climbing. All of this takes place this evening at 21:00, in the Mello theatre tent. The seats are obviously crash pads - don't forget to bring yours - for this special, unmissable bouldering session.

Melloblocco book. Last night the Melloblocco book was officially presented at the Filorera Centre. This volume retraces, since the start in 2004, the entire journey of an event which has succeeded in finding its own, unique direction. A book full of colours, photos (many), words and emotions that recollect a past shared together. It's hard not to smile when you realise how the children during those early days have become today's 20-year-old prime players. While the youngsters who took part in the early meetings are now here with their own children. And one cannot help noticing that every year more and more climbers take part in Melloblocco, that there are more and more things to do which perfectly integrate into the greater whole. In short, it seems as if Melloblocco and the Valley are a sort of catalyst for initiatives, meetings and also boundless creativity and climbing.

Mountain guides, climbing, they valley. This year the Lombardy Mountain Guides - organisers of the first 3 editions - offer free "clinics" to increase awareness about the valley's immense climbing potential. This initiative, perhaps unique in its genre, demonstrates the many facets of Melloblocco and the desire to work together for the benefit of climbing and the Valley.

Any Performance-Enhancing Handwear cover?

Posted on: Thursday, April 25, 2013 23:30
Author: Outside Magazine: Articles Feed
Subject: A Performance-Enhancing Glove?

 

Could it be true—ice and a vacuum can give a steroid-like boost to your athletic performance while speeding your recovery? According to peer-reviewed studies, yes. The glove, called CoreControl and developed by Stanford University biologists H. Craig Heller and David Grahn, ups an athlete's stamina by decreasing his core body temp through one of the body's sweatiest spots, the palm of the hand.

When core body temperature is within normal range, your muscles are poised to perform. Overheat, and the body, fearful that you are going to cook your core organs—heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, and brain—sends your blood towards the surface of your body to cool. Overheat, and not only does fatigue set in, but strength, endurance, and cognitive functions fall apart with the lack of blood where it counts. (Your muscles need blood to deliver oxygen and nutrients, and to clear out metabolic waste like lactic acid.) Send all the blood to the skin, and those blood functions are put on hold.

________________________________________

All mammals have specific heat-dissipating strategies: dogs pant, dumping heat through their tongues; rabbits "sweat" through their ears. In humans, hot blood travels to the skin, but particularly in the palms and soles of the feet. When an athlete gets hot, blood flow naturally increases through these skin regions to them.

Two Stanford biologists reasoned that if they could cool blood at one of the spots closest to the body's surface without causing vasoconstriction—which shuts down capillaries and prevents the blood from being cooled—they could keep more blood in the muscles where it can help the athlete perform.

Simple surface cooling didn't work. Jamming an athlete's hand into a bag of ice or misting him with cold water made the sweaty runner, cyclist or football player feel cooler, but the instant and dramatic cold shut down natural heat dissipation.

Heller and Grahn discovered that by controlling temperature and using a gentle vacuum, they could bypass the vasoconstriction and reduce an athlete's core temp during exercise, while also minimalizing his cramping and dehydration post workout.

The CoreControl glove has been shown to bump performance during activity by 20%, while also speeding recovery time. It's currently being worn by the San Francisco 49ers and Golden State Warriors, as well as Stanford University's football team, whose players even use it during games.

Current drawbacks: It's bulky—so you have to sit to use it, and it requires ice—two issues the Dynavision team is working to remedy. ($895)

Tialan Guan finishes Experts journey along with prosper

China experience Tianlang Guan determined his or her maiden Professionals Event using a three-over doble rounded regarding seventy-five in Saturday, concluding the particular event 12-over doble total.

The 14-year-old, the youngest player ever to play in the Masters, also became the youngest golfer in the modern era to make the cut at a major championship - after managing to sit just nine shots off Jason Day's 36-hole lead on Friday evening.

Tialan Guan finishes Experts journey along with prosper

He finished his Masters adventure in impressive fashion on Sunday, adding a final round of 75 to previous efforts of 77, 75 and 73. The cumulative score saw him sit 58th in the event in the clubhouse, sitting ahead of professionals Kevin Na, Carl Pettersson - a five-time PGA Tour winner - and John Peterson.

"I think the first couple rounds, I played pretty good," Guan said afterwards. "I feel a little bit tired today. So yeah, there's still a lot of things to improve.

"My short game's good, but still need to be better. My driver probably needs to be longer. Yes, I mean, everything needs to improve."

Guan had two birdies during his final round, at the 13th and - after a fine approach - at the par-three 16th. He did not three-putt a single green in four rounds of play at Augusta National.

Guan had already sewn up the silver cup, awarded to the week's low amateur, after the other four amateurs in the field failed to make the cut. He will pick up the award alongside the tournament's winner in the Butler Cabin at the conclusion of play.

After the teenager qualified for the event with victory at the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship last November, there had been fears that he would struggle to break 80 during his week at Augusta.

But, after arriving a month early to practise at the course, the Chinese earned widespread praise for his performance.

"The greatest thing I have seen in golf was Tiger Woods winning a Grand Slam at 24, but Guan's performance is the second best I have seen," legendary golfer Gary Player said on Sunday. "I thought Tianlang Guan would score 81, 82 but I wouldn't have been surprised by a 90 because this course is such a monster

"And he did it hitting woods! It is just incredible, if I had been in his position when I was 14 I would have been in tears."

However, he did attract some negative attention for the pace of his play; receiving a one-shot penalty on Friday for slow play and then being warned on further occasions during his third round on Saturday.

Guan hopes to continue his golfing education by playing in more professional tournaments in the near future, while he has also pencilled in some coaching sessions with Sean Foley, Tiger Woods' swing coach.

He does not intend to turn professional in the near future, however.

"I've not really made the decision however, however it will not be too soon simply because there is nevertheless lots of things to understand to enhance, inch this individual stated regarding switching professional. "So not hurry.”

Koneksi Internet Indonesia Yang Semakin KAFIR

Kian hari, koneksi internet Indonesia semakin kacau, hancur, mengecewakan, dan merugikan banyak pelanggan. Nyaris semua provider internet Indonesia tidak ada yang tidak lemot, mulai dari Smartfren, Flexi, Telkomflash, XL, Axis, hingga yang digadang-gadang paling hebat dan kencang: Speedy. Semuanya sampah dan sampah-sampah itulah yang dikonsumsi masyarakat kita. Para kapitalis itu samasekali tidak memikirkan derita para pelanggannya yang terpaksa ngesot-ngesot dengan koneksi keong, sementara Menkominfo dengan bangga malah menyatakan dunia internet kita semakin berkembang! Asu!

Peningkatan penggunaan jaringan internet tidak diimbangi dengan peningkatan kualitas. Yang ada hanyalah upaya meningkatkan profit perusahaan dan mengabaikan hak-hak konsumen untuk mendapatkan koneksi internet yang layak. Sudah semestinya para kapitalis itu berpikir, betapa sebenarnya kita ini sudah tertinggal jauh dari banyak negara gara-gara koneksi kita yang mampet!

Banyak provider sialan itu dengan bangganya malah mengiklankan di TV dan koran soal kecepatan koneksinya yang tiada tara. Pembual. Nyatanya itu hanya melukai hati para penggunanya yang dipaksa membayar dengan harga tinggi untuk mendapatkan koneksi yang hanya membikin frustasi. Cobalah pikir itu, hai para provider kafir!

100s collect with regard to Ogden Rising Event

Layla Excéder eased solid and perky fingertips in to hardly noticeable splits as well as crevices within a multi-ton boulder. The actual Ogden citizen raised the girl complete bodyweight ready convenience, after that elevated the girl remaining feet feeling for any delicate foot-hold within the rock.

After a few false starts, she lifted her body atop The Tooth, as the giant rock in the Ogden Boulder Field is known. Standing victorious, Layla surveyed all of the Ogden metro area below, and the western horizon far beyond.

“Climbing makes me feel powerful,” said Layla, only 15. “It’s not like any other sport. Anyone can play soccer. Rock climbing is solving problems on your own, without help from any teammates. Making it to the top makes me feel strong.”

Several hundred climbers and spectators braved threatening weather on Saturday to take part in the Red Point Boulder Competition, a highlight of the five-day Ogden Climbing Festival. Those competing climbed multiple chalk-marked paths up named boulders, which also included names like Hidden Rock, Lobster, Mini Cave, Arrowhead and G-2.

The festival, now in its sixth year, is run by Weber State University’s Outdoor Program.

“Every year, it gets bigger,” said Daniel Turner, event organizer. “We started with about 200 people participating in 2007, and I think we will have more than 1,000 before the festival is over.”

The festival wraps up today, with volunteer clean up of the Ogden Boulder Field, and maintenance of the path that leads up the steep hill, at the top of Lake Street, near St. Joseph Catholic High School. The event has included talks by multiple experts, training clinics and a barbecue sponsored by Red Bull.

“We started the festival as a way to build a community and to educate people about climbing,” Turner said. “The festival is a great way to get together with like-minded people, enjoy time on the mountain and celebrate climbing.”

The Weber State Outdoor Program also sponsors climbing workshops and events throughout the year. For information, visit www.weber.edu/outdoor.

Skyler Marsden, of North Ogden, was competing in the boulder climb for his second year.

“It’s great to come out here, have fun and get your adrenaline going,” said Marsden, 26, after easily completing a subtle route up a Lobster boulder overhang. “Climbing is great for building your agility and your core, and a lot of it is mental, too. You are focused. You can’t be thinking about anything else.”

Climbing outdoors, in nature, is much different from climbing indoors, on a wall furnished with brightly colored plastic hand holds.

“You have to find the hand holds here,” he said. “Training outside is harder. Your skin has to get used to it.”

Kaycee Twitchell, of Washington Terrace, is fairly new to climbing and was there to watch her boyfriend compete.

“I like to climb indoors,” Twitchell said. “I am terrified of heights, and climbing is helping me overcome it. It’s good to face your fears.

“I am terrified of birds, and I clean their cages at work,” Twitchell added, laughing. “I was scared of river rafting, so I did it. Climbing is really exhilarating, and a great way to build confidence and get past fears.”

Event judges stood by each boulder to make sure competitors reached the balloons affixed to the top of each. Climbers coached friends and strangers up the rock face, suggesting they reach feet just a little higher or to the right to find shallow dips in the quartzite boulders. Climbers awaiting their turns also shifted safety pads, to keep them directly beneath those ascending and descending the boulders.

Layla set her sights on another route up The Tooth.

“People should try this,” she said. “It’s challenging, and it builds confidence. And if I weren’t here, I’d probably just be watching TV or sleeping.”

Layla’s mom, Tawnee Jex, of Ogden, sat nearby.

“I don’t like to watch from too close, or I get scared for Layla,” Jex said. “She’s found something she loves, and it’s fun for the family to get out. I’m not sure I would want her to climb Mt. Everest, after we heard a speaker who came back half dead. But today is a lot of fun, and it’s a great kickoff for us for the summer hiking and camping season.”

Proceed Boulder or even Go back home! Interior Rising Service Discovers House within Somerville

Here you are again. Running or pedaling in place, staring at the grey ceiling of a poorly lit sweat-box, as you push weights guided by a machine. Next to you, your fellow gym-rats (or more aptly, gerbils on wheels) take on similarly mindless tasks. It’s 6am – or 6pm for those ambitious folk and happy-hour nonbelievers – no one talks, the ear buds plug up any opportunity for shared experience.

Okay, maybe this is one man’s depressing dramatization. But nowadays, who isn’t bored of the usual mundane gym regiment? What ever happened to the sense of adventure, the kids-stuff, scaling a playground wall, hanging out the second-story window by your legs? Why has adulthood led you to trade tree-climbing for a stationary aerobic machine? Where’s the excitement!? The danger!? Let’s scrap the stuffy, stand-around-and-lament gym routines. It’s time to elevate your workout game.

Meet Brooklyn Boulders Somerville (BKB), a new indoor climbing and bouldering installation that will turn your excuse for ‘exercise’ on its head. Literally. Sporting an impressive 38,000-square-foot warehouse space, expertly constructed bouldering and climbing walls, and tons of light-giving windows, this place… wait for it… rocks! (Climbing humor is hard…) 

According to the Brooklyn Boulders’ website:

Our goal is to provide a new type of curated community space… augmented by art, culture, music and entrepreneurship. Under our roof the lines between work, life, and play are blurred.

This spectacle of metallic, gigantic steel spider-webs and smooth tampered wood walls – pure eye-candy for climbing experts and novices alike – is made possible by Brooklyn Boulders, who opened the original Brooklyn-based facility in 2009. The company’s founders, both Babson alumni, are committed to uphold the same level of dedication displayed previously in NYC.

“Brooklyn and Cambridge/Somerville are two of the most diverse neighborhoods in the world,” says president Lance Pinn. “Brooklyn actually has more students than the Cambridge area, but both have so many intellectuals, artists, and experts that there ends up being a lot of jobs focused around just that: creativity and innovation. We thought Brooklyn Boulders would be great in such a culture.”

The space will cater to all levels of climbers, with both basic instruction and expert advice available. BKB Somerville plans to change out holds and switch up routes every six to eight weeks to keep ascents interesting for frequent attendees. Much like the sister site’s mock Brooklyn Bridge structure, the Somerville location has its own climbable historic landmark, the Prospect Hill Monument.

For those hero-type climbers, a 50-foot climbing wall, unofficially dubbed ‘The Tongue,’ will extend up and across the ceiling, and provide a “View of the Pru” through encircling windows at the top. BKB Somerville will also focus on youth programs and events, such as climbing teams, charitable programs, and summer adventure courses.

If these features don’t have you chalking up your palms in anticipation, BKB has lots more to offer than holds and ropes. With space for temperature-controlled yoga, a dry sauna, weight and cardio rooms, and lots of seating for spectators, management hopes customers “will never want to leave.” The new installation’s “theater-like” construction will be perfect for competitive events. If the Red Sox have another poor season, pretty soon they’ll be putting holds on the Green Monster – relax Fenway Faithful, I'm only kidding.

After ascending your first boulder and screaming in ecstasy or fear (or maybe both), the espresso bar, cafeteria, or guest food-truck vendor has the stuff to put you right again.

Operating under the saying “physicality stimulates innovation and creativity,” BKB will team up with the Cambridge Innovation Center to bring you inspiring workspaces. There will also be pop-up shop spaces throughout the facility to host wares and services.

With spring upon us, the BKB team is working hard to finish construction and nail down permits. Pinn estimates an opening in June at the earliest, but hopefully no later than mid-July.

100 Popular Japan Mountains; Climbing

When Akira Chiba reached the top of Mount Yarigatake a dozen years ago and stared out into the volcanic gas clouds that wreathed its peak, it was the realization of what for some is a long-held dream. He had just summited the last of the 100 mountains listed in a popular book by Kyuya Fukada — a goal held by many Japanese mountaineers, including Crown Prince Naruhito. Reaching the marker, though, he was not overcome with elation. He experienced the normal exhilaration of summiting a mountain and a longing for distant peaks, one that he has continued to indulge.

Climbing ‘100 Famous Japanese Mountains’

Akira Chiba

Below are edited excerpts from a conversation conducted with Mr. Chiba through a translator about climbing mountains in Japan.

Q. How significant are mountains in Japanese culture?

A. Many regions have a “home mountain” that is adored by locals. Once, while hiking Mount Kurikoma, I came upon a shrine for the mountain god, nestled under a cliff, and suddenly felt the faith of all the people who lived at the foot of that mountain. In the past, mountains were holy objects, partly because the rivers that flowed from them nourished the fields. People would bless them and pray to be spared from drought, and farmers would look to them to gauge the seasons.

For example, in my hometown of Miyagi, in early spring the melting snow on Mount Kurikoma forms into a lingering shape on the mountainside. It looks something like a horse and signals the arrival of the planting season.

Q. What do people look to to learn about mountains in Japan?

A. “100 Famous Japanese Mountains,” published in 1964, which chronicled the favorite climbs of Kyuya Fukada. Before him, Tani Buncho, a painter during the Edo period, had already made a list of 90 celebrated mountains. Buncho’s list was chosen from a painter’s point of view — mountains that melted into the scenery, often near villages — while Fukada’s list had the view of a modern alpinist. He chose deep mountains, many of which could only be seen from the summit of other mountains, and based his selection on three criteria: grace, history and individuality.

Q. What are some good examples of such mountains?

A. Mount Tsukuba has a low altitude among the 100, but its history is steeped in legend. You can even find its name in the oldest surviving anthology of Japanese poetry. People relate to this mountain as an intimate place, because its two peaks, one male, the other female, are said to make a couple. Many people visit the shrines there seeking marital blessings.

And part of the Japanese spirit was built by Mount Fuji. However, beware, the Fuji boom of past years still continues, and every summer about 300,000 visitors show up to hike it.

A good example of grace might be Mount Rishiri, a volcano island that floats atop the ocean in the north part of Hokkaido. This type of mountain is beautiful to look at, because its ridgeline slopes directly into the sea. From the top, you can see many islands, even ones far off in the distance.

Once, I stood there in the evening, and as the sun dropped into the ocean, the sky became serene and I could see all the homes on those islands gradually lighting up. It was an unforgettable experience. I stood there completely still, watching, and my tears wouldn’t stop.

The fact is, I would probably recommend 95 percent of these mountains, but I don’t think Fukada had meant for people to only hike these 100. There are so many worthy mountains in Japan. I believe the intention of his list was to encourage a mountain climbing spirit. In the book he would insist, “These are my best 100, which are yours?”

Q. So besides the 100, which would you recommend?

A. There is a small mountain hut, called Funakubo-goya (Funakubo-lodge), in the Northern Alps between Mount Nanakura and Mount Renge. It’s a homey place, kept by a very warm old couple and some volunteers. The wife makes hearty meals for mountaineers, using edible wild plants and dried food. It was so yummy, I had to return the next year.

FYI: Climbing any huge batch starts with significantly boating

NASA desires to tow line a good asteroid towards the celestial satellite: senator

NASA desires to get a little asteroid as well as tow line this in to orbit round the celestial satellite, included in the long range strategy in the direction of creating long term manned outposts within area, based on the US senator.

To get the project off the ground, US President Barack Obama will propose around $100 million for the US space agency in his 2014 budget, which he submits to Congress on Wednesday, Senator Bill Nelson said in a statement.

"This is part of what will be a much broader program," the Florida Democrat explained.

"The plan combines the science of mining an asteroid, along with developing ways to deflect one, along with providing a place to develop ways we can go to Mars."

The plan calls for a robotic-spacecraft to capture the asteroid and tow it back towards Earth, ultimately leaving it in a stable orbit around the moon, close enough that, within eight years, astronauts could head on over.

A similar plan was initially proposed in 2012 by experts at the California Institute of Technology, and the group, along with other top researchers in the field, have since prepared a detailed study into the project's feasibility.

"It would be mankind's first attempt at modifying the heavens to enable the permanent settlement of humans in space," scientists said in their report.

Obama's goal of sending a manned mission to a near-Earth asteroid by 2025 is impossible given NASA's current and projected funding levels, expert analysis has suggested.

But using an unmanned vehicle to instead bring a 500-ton asteroid close to home could change the game and get humans to an asteroid as early as 2021, four years ahead of the deadline.

Once there, "there could be mining activities, research into ways of deflecting an asteroid from striking Earth, and testing to develop technology for a trip to deep space and Mars," Nelson's statement said.

'Cruising straight down Kochi highways similar to real life video gaming experience'

They have already been performing regarding one 100,000 kilometers in the motorbike each year during the last fifteen many years, in various nations, nevertheless the actual Indian native visitors ended up being an incredible encounter with regard to Charley Boorman.

“It’s like a real-life video game…it’s interesting,” said the famed adventure rider from London after a taste of the Kochi roads, here on Friday night. “But out of what seems chaos, there’s actually a method to the whole thing. Once you understand how the system works, it’s actually very easy to get around. You have to be awake and very, very alert but it is fun and I love it.”

Boorman was in Kochi as part of Star Sports’ six-part television series, Freedom Riders Asia, which saw him riding through Malaysia, Indonesia and Philippines before landing in India. Actor Gul Panag, also a bike enthusiast, is a co-host for the show’s Indian leg which will see the two riding Royal Enfield bikes.

The son of acclaimed film director John Boorman and a Hollywood actor himself, Boorman took to bikes at six.

He did a lot of racing and rallying, before moving to adventure riding. His first TV adventure series, ‘Long Way Round’ in 2004, during which he rode 20,000 miles across the globe, from London to New York through Europe and Asia along with his friend Ewan McGregor, made him a celebrity all over the world and brought many awards too.

The new Freedom Riders’ Indian leg, which is supported by Shell Advance, carried Boorman through the Coorg-Munnar route, which had been voted as the world’s ultimate riding wonder last year, and he was thrilled with the Kerala experience.

“The tea plantations up the mountains… it looks like a giant, beautiful lush carpet, you almost feel like you want to jump off the bike and run down these lush carpets,” he said. “People always talk about Kerala as a stunning place for riding; they call this God’s country for riding. A lot of Europeans come down here because they want to ride these roads.”

Boorman’s toughest ride came in the Dakar Rally in 2006. “It’s some 16 days with 800 km every day and in the Sahara Desert and the year I did it, there were 250 motorcycles which started and 67 finished,” he said about his experience in what is often considered as the world’s toughest rally. “I didn’t finish, I crashed out on day five and broke my hands. That was the end of the Dakar for me but we made a good TV show.”

He is keen to give Dakar another try. “If I get a sponsor, I would do it again,” he said, ever ready for a challenge.

“Serious?” said Kar Tai Koh, the Global Brand Manager for Shell Advance, smiling and almost throwing a hint that he would back the Brit.

Whitney Top Resort hosting companies NorCal Rising Local Shining

The Whitney Peak Hotel, formarly CommRow, hosted its first climbing competition on Saturday, a combination of the Collegiate Climbing Series NorCal Regional Championship and a Citizen’s Competition.

“The energy here is great,” Humbolt State University climber Jack Schneider said. “Everyone’s really excited, you can tell. The energy is high, and the performance levels are high.”

Competators are judged on a combination of difficulty and speed.

“I focus on accuracy more than speed, definitely. It’s more important to make sure you get it right than getting to the top quickly. You don’t want to mess up any of your tries,” Schdeider said.

Schnieder prepared for the competition in advance, saying, “It’s monitering your diet and activity one week before the event. You get a good night’s sleep the night before, then you get here and you get excited for the competition.”

The competition requires climbers to do both “bouldering” climbing and “routes” climbing.

“The difference is that bouldering is closer to the ground, so if you fall, you just fall on the ground,” BaseCamp manager Brian Sweeney said. “The routes only have ropes for protection.”

Scheider said he was better at bouldering, having first done that type of climbing.

“Rope climbing is fun, but it’s not my speciality,” notes Schneider.

This was Schneider’s first time climbing at Whitney Peak.

The competition was held from 10:30 a.m. until 5:00, with finals at 4:30. A smaller speed competition was also held.

“This is our first competition. I hope to make this an annual event,” Sweeney said.

India's very first interior rising fitness center starts within Bangalore

Bangalore may be the heartland associated with sports activity rising within Indian, as well as it is instead suitable that this country’s very first interior rising fitness center ought to open up within the town.
Called Balance, the actual country’s very first interior fitness center guarantees in order to revolutionize the game within Indian. It does not take performance of the concept that offers situated within Keerthi Pais’s thoughts with regard to lengthy.

Pais, chief national coach and until recently the Director of Indian Mountaineering Foundation’s sport climbing committee, has been toying with the idea for years, but it was only recently that it found fruition. He was discussing it with a friend, Sriram Devatha, whose family owns Devatha Plaza (a commercial complex) on Residency Road. Sriram suggested they could set up a gym on the sixth floor. Work on the place took two months, and by the look of things, Equilibrium is just what the city needed for sport enthusiasts.

Built by national champion Praveen CM, what strikes one immediately are the bright colours of the walls and holds that will attract children. There are multiple routes and gradients, designed to cater to first-timers and professionals. The climbing area is air-conditioned, and with crash mats spread underneath, climbers can spend the entire day on the walls by themselves or with friends. One part of the gym has training equipment (treadmill, weight balls, trampoline, etc), while another section has a retail store for adventure products that will be run by former international medalist and national champion Archana BS. Climbers can either buy shoes from the store or rent them for their climbs. Keerthi also plans to open a small café from where people can watch climbers in action, and possibly a cycle store as well.

For Keerthi, the gym is “a dream come true. I’ve been thinking of this for many years, but it all fell into place over just one conversation,” he says. “This can improve the standard of our climbers. It will also attract new climbers. I will also be conducting national camps here, so we will have the country’s best climbers training in Bangalore. We have all the equipment required to train top-class climbers; they don’t need to seek anything elsewhere. This is the sort of facility that international climbers have access to, but which we’ve never had. We haven’t compromised on anything. We got the holds from Korea, because their texture is such that it won’t hurt your fingers.”

A fitness center will even assist in cross-training sports athletes associated with some other sports activities, as well as Keerthi programs in order to ask these to teach in Balance. In the end, rising really does miracles towards the torso particularly, along with a program within the wall space could be each fascinating within creating power. However it is for your rising local community that this walls retains the majority of importance, with the town currently getting created the actual country’s greatest outdoorsmen, for example Praveen, Chea Marak, Archana BALONEY, Vathsala MN as well as Karthik , and others, Balance guarantees much better occasions forward.

Worldwide Journey Manual 2013: Exento, Republic of ecuador

Ecuador's funds town, Exento, is definitely proclaimed an excellent bouncing away stage with regard to journey tourists. The town is actually between 11 volcanoes as well as a large number of moving streams, which makes it a perfect location for all those seeking to walk, bicycle, ascend, boat and much more.  As if that weren't enough, four regions are crammed into this tiny, megadiverse country – the Amazon jungle, the Andean highlands, the coastal region and the Galapagos Islands – offering boundless opportunities for adventure travelers.

No matter where you set off to in Ecuador, the main base of all activity for adventure tour operators is in Quito. And thanks to a new $700 million airport that opened earlier this year, it's never been easier to get there – not to mention less scary. To land at the old airport, pilots needed to negotiate the Andean mountain slopes before touching down on a runway in the middle of the city.

Once you land in Quito, food, accommodations, transportation and even adventure activities are relatively cheap; this is one place where the dollar really does go a long way. And since the country uses U.S. currency, many people reading this won't even have to worry about doing any of those pesky conversions.

Of course, it's not all sun and roses in Ecuador. This beautiful country also comes with some safety concerns, among them the threat of natural disasters such as volcano eruptions and earthquakes, as well as crime aimed at easy-to-target travelers. Before you go, read through the U.S. Department of State's travel warnings, and once you land keep aware of your surroundings at all times.

Adventure Activities

Before setting off, remember to allow time to acclimatize to the altitude, which can be done pain free by drinking plenty of water and allowing some time to adjust to the nearly two-mile-high capital. Several tour operators, all based in Quito, can arrange tours lasting from a few hours to several days. Book before you go, or wait until you land to shop around for last minute deals in Quito's Mariscal neighborhood, the tourist center of the city that is packed with bars, coffee shops, Internet cafes, restaurants and dance clubs.

Quito itself is located just a little over an hour from the Amazon basin, meaning rivers that flow from the Andes run strong and fast from these highlands down to the rainforest. This creates ideal conditions for rafting, so much so that just a few years ago the World Rafting Championship was held on the Quijos River, just northeast of Quito. Possible operators include:

  • Imagine Ecuador: 16 de Diciembre St., Baños; (+593-2) 274-3472.

Hiking
Quito wraps around the Eastern slopes of Pichincha, an active stratovolcano that has two easily hikable peaks. The smaller peak, Ruku, makes for a great day hike if you get an early start (before the fog rolls in); begin by taking in the city on Quito's skytram, the TelefériQo ($4), from which there are markers for the three-hour round trip excursion.

Besides the actual Ruku walk, you will find countless paths which get outdoorsmen via Ecuador's numerous panoramas.

Security recommendations created with regard to journey actions

Within a very first for brand spanking new Zealand, 3 well-known journey tourist actions -- canyoning, caving as well as interior rock-climbing -- possess extensive security recommendations readily available for providers.

The three Adventure Safety Guidelines (ASGs) being launched today are the first nationally consistent approaches to managing safety in the canyoning, caving and indoor rock-climbing sectors in New Zealand.

The three ASGs are an outcome of the 2009-10 government-led review of risk management and safety in the adventure and outdoor commercial sector in New Zealand. With funding and support from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE), the Tourism Industry Association New Zealand (TIA) was given responsibility for developing the guidelines in consultation with leading experts from each sector.

"These guidelines draw on the knowledge of recognised canyoning, caving and indoor rock-climbing experts, and reflect international standards, but they also take account of the impacts New Zealand’s unique environment can have on each activity," TIA Advocacy Manager Geoff Ensor says.

"It's critical that 'adventure' remains in adventure tourism, but we all have a responsibility to ensure that these experiences are being delivered within a strong safety framework."

Outdoors New Zealand (ONZ), which supported the development of the guidelines, says they are an important step forward for adventure and outdoor safety.

ONZ Chief Executive Garth Dawson says the adventure tourism, outdoor education and recreation sectors look forward to benchmarking their activities against the relevant ASGs.

"We encourage all operators to strive for continual improvement in all aspects of their activities. The ASGs are an invaluable addition to sector safety knowledge."

Mr Ensor says the ASGs will be essential if operators elect to undergo an external safety audit, as the recommendations they contain will be referred to by auditors working to the Health and Safety in Employment (Adventure Activities) Regulations 2011.

"Any investigation into an accident may look at how well an operator followed these guidelines," he says.

ASGs for a range of other adventure tourism activities, including heli-skiing, quad-biking, high wire crossing and abseiling, are under development.

"Client expectations of safety are higher than ever while the tolerance for mistakes is very low. New Zealand is a world-leader in adventure tourism and our development of these industry-accepted safety standards is being noted internationally," Mr Ensor says.

The ASGs have been welcomed by operators in each sector:

"This document is a good guiding tool for those in or wanting to get into the indoor climbing facility field," says YMCA Christchurch Partnership Manager Dave Goldsworthy. www.ymcachch.org.nz

"The canyoning sector will benefit from having the ASG out there," says Big Rock Canyons Business Manager Grant Prattley. http://bigrockcanyons.co.nz/

"Caving takes many visitors right outside their comfort zone but we want to keep them safe while they’re experiencing this great activity. The caving ASG will help even experienced operators double-check their safety management plans," says The Legendary Black Water Rafting Co. Operations Supervisor Angus Stubbs. www.waitomo.com/black-water-rafting.aspx

To read the ASGs for canyoning, caving and indoor rock-climbing, and for more information about the Adventure Safety Review, go to SupportAdventure.co.nz

The actual ASGs develop the actual SupportAdventure. company. nz web site released within Might this that provides journey tourist as well as industrial outside providers the "one quit shop" for facts as well as suggestions about managing a secure procedure.

Norwegian Adventure Film 'Ragnarok' First Subtitled Trailer

"Man knows little." As much as I was hoping this was an epic action-adventure on the scale of 13th Warrior or Beowulf or Outlander, it actually seems to be more of a family adventure similar to National Treasure. Nordisk Film and Mangolia Pictures have released the first subtitled trailer for Ragnarok, originally Gåten Ragnarok, starring Norwegian actor Pål Sverre Hagen, seen in last year's Oscar nominated film Kon-Tiki This is actually more of a teaser with gorgeous sweeping shots of a family on some adventure raiding Viking graves and hugging each other, but beyond that, I'm not sure what they're going to encounter. Take a look!

When the archaeologist Sigurd can't settle on the myth about Ragnarok, the end of the world in Northern mythology, he decides to go on an expedition together with two colleges and his two kids. This adventure leads them to Finnmark in Norway, and into "No Man's Land", where no one has been in modern times.

Fantefilm is behind the upcoming "large scale action-adventure film" (straight from their YouTube) which stars actor Pål Sverre Hagen (Kon-Tiki) as an archeologist obsessed with the Oseberg Viking ship. Gåten Ragnarok is directed by Norwegian filmmaker Mikkel Brænne Sandemose, of only the film "Cold Prey 3" previously. No US release date has been set by Magnolia yet, but it will hit Norwegian theaters this August.

UPenn College student Passes away within Rock-Climbing Incident

College students in the College associated with Pa tend to be grieving losing among their very own. Oliver Pacchiana, a good Anatomist main as well as Younger in the college, passed away whilst learning overseas within Newcastle, south africa. Having been two decades aged.

Pacchiana, originally from Greenwich, Conn., was studying abroad at the University of Cape Town. While on Spring Break, he went on a trip to Victoria Falls and Botswana, according to the Daily Pennsylvanian. The DP reports he then went off on his own to visit Namibia, a country 1,000 miles north of Cape Town, to go rock climbing on Sunday. While climbing with the group, Pacchiana slipped and fell to his death.

The American consulate in Namibia contacted Pacchiana’s family Sunday morning by phone and informed them of his death. UPenn students found out Monday night through email.

Oliver was an Eagle Scout and an altar server at his local parish, according to his brother Nolan Pacchiana.

"The cliche that appears in every obituary is that the world mourns the passing of a good kid, taken before his time," said Nolan. "That is absolutely the case for Oliver. Oliver had a strong moral compass and a good heart."

Nolan also says his brother had a passion for traveling.

"He was always looking for a new experience, a new part of the world he hadn't seen," said Nolan. "He hiked the deserts of New Mexico and climbed the trails of Alaska. He had visited over 15 countries and five continents."

Pacchiana was also a member of the UPenn band.

"Oliver was a mainstay in the band as a freshman tuba player," said Penn band director Greer Cheeseman. "I don't think he missed an event, the whole year, rehearsal, game, anything. He was one you could always count on. He was a good kid. And he'll be missed."

David Kaiser-Jones, the president of the band, described Oliver as "cheerful, funny and instantly likable."

"He was enthusiastic and unabashedly quirky," said Jones. "So naturally, the band loved him. The Penn Band is a particularly tight-knit group, so his loss impacted us deeply."

The assistance conference happened Wednesday mid-day in an exceedingly UPenn auditorium. The funeral support is going to be saved in Greenwich this particular Weekend. UPenn will certainly sponsor another support upon Mon.
