I started climbing 5 years ago. At first it was more recreational, but for 2 years I participated in the competitive circuit of Quebec Cups and Nationals for the block and the track.
Outside of the competitive season, I travel, which allows me to discover new climbing sites. In the summer, I prefer to take advantage of the Quebec climate to explore, with my van, all the climbing sites that our beautiful province has to offer. As for other seasons, where climbing is less favorable in Quebec, I take the opportunity to probe what other countries have offered us! My latest climbing discoveries have been: Hawaii (Oahu), Thailand (Tonsai and Railay) and Greece (Kalymnos). In the next few months I also planned to visit Texas (Hueco tanks) and South Africa (Rockland)
I had the chance to go on a 6-month long journey, where at the wheel of my van, I explored the different sites across Canada and the United States. I was able to climb Squamish, Skahabluff (Western Canada), Smith rock, Yosemite, Bishop, Joshua tree (California), Denver (Utah), Golden, boulder (Colorado) and Red river gorge (Kentucky)
My few outdoor climbing successes this summer, I did a 12C "the Ginseng" flash and a 5.12 A / b "shaggin wagon" at Shagg crag in Maine. I also did a 5.12A "Ro shampo" onsight in Kentucky, a 5.12A "Cherub" send and an "impossible" Send V8 to Smuggle Notch. I have some other exploits, of which I can not give name or rank, since they were in sites still in development! 🙂
Climbing fascinates me, but I strongly advocate multisport and variety! I believe that all sports can bring a plus to every practice.
So, despite all this, I continue to run on a trail, go mountain biking, surf, yoga and many more!
