Ganesha (8c, 7 pitches) - Rope Solo First Ascent by Fabian Buhl

After being the first to repeat Alexander Huber’s “Nirwana” (8c+), a 7-pitch route on the Sonnwendwand at Loferer Steinplatte, which is considered one of the hardest multi-pitch routes in the World, Fabian Buhl was hooked. The 26-year old wanted to establish his own first ascent in the same style, ground-up and solo with a bare minimum of bolts. Right next to “Nirwana” he manages to solo redpoint “Ganesha” (8c), a 7-pitch route named after his mojo: an elephant-headed Hindu god that is widely revered as the remover of obstacles and the God of New Beginnings. A great image for overcoming many hurdles and risking big falls while developing his very own self-belay rope management system, which has given him the confidence to tackle many more solo projects in the future.

adidas ROCKSTARS 2016 – Superfinal Women

Jessica Pilz and Janja Garnbret were out first and it was a tense super-final which swung one way then the other, with both climbers coming close to reaching the buzzer, only to fall at the last move. With 90 seconds left on the clock, both climbers were on the crash mats, tired from their previous efforts but beaming broad smiles as the audience roared them on. Time ran out with both athletes on the wall but someone had to win so they climbed on! Finally, Janja reached up for the crucial top hold and as soon as she touched it, the win was a formality. She flopped onto the top of the wall, took a second to compose herself and pressed the buzzer to claim the adidas ROCKSTARS title, a week after taking the World Championship lead final. She is just 17 years old and her trophy cabinet is already rammed full.Janja Garnbret, having claimed the women’s title, was exhausted after a frantic week and was more than happy to be interviewed provided she could slump on one of the couches in the athlete lounge when she spoke to us! Installed on her couch, she commented, “I just came here to enjoy, to have fun…so to get another win is unbelievable. I was super happy (on top of the superfinal boulder) but at the same time so exhausted so I turned to the public, pushed the button, the whole audience stood up and I was just so happy.”

adidas ROCKSTARS 2016 – Superfinal Men

While the route setters quickly swapped the holds from the women’s superfinal for the men’s ones, Robeat and Trommelfeuer once again took the stage and treated the crowd to some amazing percussion/beatboxing. With the holds ready to go, Jan Hojer and Tomoa Narasaki made their way onto the stage. In front of a home crowd, Jan inevitably got the bigger cheer but all of Tomoa’s victories this year have come away from Japan, so he can cope just fine with or without the crowd supporting him. Within 30 seconds of the super-final beginning, Tomoa had proved this again. He was already on top of the wall, with the buzzer pressed and his arms in the air having flashed the boulder. Jan also flashed it but just couldn’t live with the speed that Tomoa climbed. Jan looked disappointed but after an otherwise poor season (by his standards) he should reflect in the next few weeks that second place to the dominant force in male bouldering in 2016 probably isn’t a bad result. He commented after leaving the stage, “It’s always great to climb in front of a home crowd and it’s my fifth year here but I’ve only made finals once and I didn’t make it to the super final and that was my goal for this competition. It was amazing here to show myself that I can still climb with some of the best guys.” Tomoa, meanwhile, who has now won every major title available to him this year, put it perfectly when he walked down off the stage and said, “2016 is my season”. He’s appeared from nowhere this year and already looks like he can dominate male bouldering for the foreseeable future.

adidas ROCKSTARS 2016 – Best Of

This weekend has seen the World’s elite rock climbers descend on Stuttgart for a truly special competition. adidas ROCKSTARS pairs over 70 invited athletes from over 22 different countries with intense musical performances and a passionate and vocal crowd of over 3500 fans to create an event unlike anything else in the climbing universe.   Even by the high standards of adidas ROCKSTARS, the athlete line-up this year was incredibly strong. Of the 72 athletes who started, the field was narrowed over 2 rounds to just 6 male and 8 female finalists (due to a three-way tie for 6th place in the semi-finals 8 women progressed to the final instead of the usual 6). Amongst those 14 finalists were the reigning male European Boulder Champion, male Boulder World Cup overall winner, male Boulder World Champion, female World Boulder Champion and female Lead World Champion! In addition, there was also at least one previous adidas ROCKSTARS winner in both the men’s and women’s final, meaning that before a hold had even been touched, observers were predicting one of the most fascinating and tight finals in history.   As the arena filled up on Saturday evening the excitement in the air was extraordinary and the already pumped up crowd was encouraged to make even more noise by punkrockers Orange but Green, the mixing master DJ battle and human beatbox Robeat. By the time the athletes were ready to hit the stage the Porsche-Arena was alive and the crowd was creating a wall of noise to welcome their heroes onto the stage.

World record on Kilimanjaro

Africa - World record on Kilimanjaro – Stephan Siegrist walks the world’s highest highline   The Swiss professional alpinist and Mammut Pro Team athlete Stephan Siegrist realized an extraordinary balancing act in the summit region of Kilimanjaro. He set a world record by walking a highline at 5,700 meters above sea level. The highline, which is a good 20-m long and stretches between two rock towers on Kilimanjaro, is where Siegrist achieved a new record at 5,700 m above sea level: no-one has ever walked a highline at such a height. The previous world record was set in 2015 by Bence Kerekes of Hungary with a highline at 5,322 m above sea level in Ladakh, India. Siegrist has exceeded this by several hundred meters.

Visiting the Eiffel Tower just got a new meaning. Extreme drone and POV footage from climbing the world's most famous tower. It's almost impossible to get to the tower illegally (do not try to repeat this) especially in view of recent political developments and the ongoing European Football Championship. Police and national guard are always on duty on the premises of the tower. The shoot was carried out in the rainy season. The level of Seine river broke the 30-year-old record and the wind speed reached up to 6m/s. The poor drone operator not only crashed the drone but also received a pretty big fine.

#project360 | Mount Everest

The #project360 is bringing legendary climbing routes as the Matterhorn Hörnligrat, the Mont Blanc and the north face of the Eiger to screens with breathtaking panoramic images. Now, the #project360 is going to the Roof of the world, Mount Everest.   Now, at the beginning of the climbing season 2016, a milestone in another field – in digital cartography – was reached: For the first time, the Southern climbing route, beginning at the Nepalese basecamp up to the “Roof of the World”, is documented by breathtaking 360°-videography and -photography. A small group of four Sherpas attended to the honourable task to bring the Everest into the living rooms of the fans of alpine sports by these three-dimensional recordings. Likewise, it is an homage to the first climbers Edmund Hillary and Tensing Norgay who have already chosen this route in 1953. A customized backpack with altogether six cameras facilitates the perfect omnidirectional view.

David Lama Climbs a Magical Sinkhole

Avaatara – Free Climbing the Magical Sinkhole  David Lama achieves first ascent of the Baatara gorge in Lebanon  “If you travel roads that have already been discovered, you are basically always just following. But if you go somewhere where no one’s ever been and do something no one’s ever done, you’re on the lead and that’s one thing that I really like.” David Lama’s guiding philosophy has already taken him to the most impressive mountain ranges of the world and, more recently, to the Baatara gorge in Lebanon.

Shot on a RED epic, 5D mark iii, Inspire Copter and an iPhone (battery ran out on those graveyard shots...). I got inspired to write the voice over in the video after visiting Da Poetry Lounge in West Hollywood and hearing some legendary spoken word pieces by people like Shane Koyczan. So I decided to give it a shot… Here is the transcript » I want to go on a road trip with no plans Play with my inner child Take my heart off the leash and let it run wild Have you ever drove past a hill on the side of the road and had an urge to just stop and run up it? Break the routine and just do something different But instead you just keep on driving looking back at your rear view at what could have been I’m so tired of this feeling that the best is yet to come the best is right here, right now yes there’s what you need to do to make a living but there’s also what you must do to feel alive Go seek because life is hidden and in adventure it can be found because these pursuits are triggers for self-actualization, releasing my potential because my body can only feel rested after it’s pushed, stretched and tested because sometimes I feel like something is sleeping inside of me deprived, just waiting to be revived I need to be revitalized I think that if I can spark this fire I can find the strength to reach higher challenge myself in experiences I’ll never forget and when I’m 80 years old on my rocking chair I’ll have no regrets this is my calling, I’m all in but it’s not just a desire, it’s my responsibility because these places open up my eyes to possibility giving access to the limitless nature of our existence distance from that voice in my head that says stop when I struggle to stay persistent So I chase the version of me I want to be stay on track by following the fear that holds me back climbing up a setback, deep inside of what I lack I’m stalling, running as fast as I can but feel like I’m crawling I tell myself to take a break, relax let what you lack be an empty crack you don’t have to be whole to be intact but I’m not very good at lying to myself I know I need to catch that uncatchable self I know that trying to be more than I am is who I am I know that I’m in love with the never ending search it’s my drive, my passion, my thirst and it’s not because I’m never satisfied, it’s because I’m always satisfied learning how to glide in this bumpy ride this is my life commute it’s not the pursuit of happiness it’s the happiness of pursuit I know that this trip will be over in a flash so I respect the dash the gravestone dash between birth and death is my time my time to explore, my time to live unbound.

Fear Enthusiast Risks 100m Fall Climbing Up Water Tower

AN ADRENALINE athlete free climbs up a water tower and balances along the narrow beams which run across its open top. Self-confessed fear enthusiast Flaviu Cernescu filmed this vertigo-inducing footage in May, after spotting the hollow structure while paragliding near Romania's Retezat Mountains. The 33-year-old used a rope to hoist himself up towards a rusty ladder, which he used to climb the imposing concrete building - without any safety equipment. At the summit, the daredevil walked across the slender metal beams and even performed a set of press-ups while staring down into the 100 metre drop below. He said: "The building immediately caught my attention - it is 25 metres high, however its hollow centre has a depth of 100 metres into the ground."
