THE GORZDERETTE

THE GORZDERETTE: THE FUNNEST ICE CLIMBING FESTIVAL THAT I HAD BEEN.
THIS FESTIVAL IS IN CHAMPAGNY FRANCE A SMALL VILLAGE UP ON THE MOUNTAINS.
THE STRUCTURE IS AMAZING REAL ICE COMBINE WITH VERY PARTICULAR MIXED CLIMBING.
THIS FESTIVAL IS MAINLY SPONSOR BY ASOLO PETZL.

HERE THE COMP IS VERY DIFFERENT THAT ANY OTHER CLIMBING COMP. IT IS WAY MORE CHILL THAN THE WORLD CUP, AND YOU HAVE TO COMPETE WITH A PARTNER IN MANY DIFFERENT EVENTS AND IN THE END ALL THE POINTS COME TOGETHER FOR A FINAL SCORE. ONE OF THE CATEGORIES ARE CROSS COUNTRY FOR A KILOMETER!!!
PULL THIS HEAVY THING AROUND HAS FAST ES YOU CAN THEN, YOU HAVE TO SNOWSHOEING WITH A HUGE SNOW SHOE WHERE IS TWO BINDINGS, SO IS TWO PEOPLE ON THE SAME RIG PRETTY FUNNY THEN YOU HAVE TO A MOUNTAIN CIRCUIT IN ICE TERRAIN WITH OUT CRAMPONS AND LAST YOU GO AND GET PUMP ON THE ICE TOWER. THIS WAS PRETTY COOL LOTS OF PEOPLE GOT TOGETHER FOR THIS PHOTO PRETTY COOL !!!!!
A LOOK FROM THE TOP OF THE TOWER.
A NIGHT IT WAS SHOW TIME. WE WORE 10 PRO CLIMBERS HOW WHORE INVITED TO THIS EVENT, SO WE HAD TO DO A CLIMBING SHOW AT NIGHT FOR THE PUBLIC. HERE BEN Y MYSELF DECIDED TO CLIMB THE TOWER WITH ONLY 3 AXES FOR THE TWO OF US IN ONE POINT WE HAVE TO TOSS THE AXE TO EACH OTHER IN ORDER TO MAKE THE NEXT MOVE. IT WAS SUPERR FUN.
