Mountains, sea, chess, ships in a bottle? It does not really matter does it? What’s your passion?

From the archive … Waiting for the sunrise at Indian Creek. If you ever said yes to a photographer (or perhaps a fellow climber) to wake up way before sunrise, leave the warmth of your sleeping back, walk in in the dark and all that just to maybe get a photo if the weather is good … then I salute YOU. Without you some of the best photos would not be possible and for me personally it is just one more proof of how much passion is out there in climbing. Thank you!

The always-looking-for-a-new-stuff crusher @dugmcc at the rather technical crux of Ice Age II at Pterodactyl cave in the Blue Mountains. If you want to know the 100% true story about discovering this unique arch check out the latest issue of Vertical Life magazine.

One of the beautiful and awesome aspects of traveling is that you never know what’s waiting for you around the corner. Vercha (aka @treeloveyoga) enjoying the early morning view of Mount Solitary. And for us climbers … Can you imagine how much climbing is waiting for us there?

Sends, a bit of a struggling, so much fighting and determination … all that happening in one day and everyone was having a great time on top of that. Ben Markham in the determination mode on Tuckered Out at Diamond Falls in Blue Mountains.

When I was a little kid I imagined the milky way as bottles of milk floating around held together by a giant net. Some of them were as large as elephants and some of them even larger … otherwise we would not be able to see them of course. Now when I am older and wiser I know that the bottles must be much much larger and the net way stronger than I thought When I was a little kid I imagined the milky way as bottles of milk floating around held together by a giant net.

This picture is a couple of years old when road tripping in US. As I was traveling alone I met a lot of awesome people. Some of them I never got a chance to meet again some of them have become my close friends. I learnt a lot during this trip. I now know how to talk to rangers to not get fined … how to set up a campfire the Swiss way … what it feels like to throw a rock of a size of a fridge on your best mate … but the most important thing I realized while talking to people is … that it does not matter what your goal is and how far you THINK you are from achieving it is as long as you enjoy the process.

After six months of waiting for the stars to align and temperatures to rise the idea has finally turn into reality. Thanks Chris & Chris for making this shot possible and a memorable and fun night out.
That moment of letting go … I always get quite nervous when shooting BASE. It is exciting to be part of it but hard for me to watch at the same time. Cannot stop thinking about something going wrong. The danger is obvious to me … It however reminds me of conversations with my mum as she feels the same when I mention climbing … The unknown is just terrifying for her Which makes me think of other things I’m scared of. Are they really that terrifying or is it just the UNKNOWN?
