Ceuse part 1

After the Worldcup in Briancon I moved to Ceuse for some outdoor climbing. I had never visited this area before, especially because I was pretty afraid of the long walk up. After being here for one week I understand why so many people walk up that mountain every day. The quality of the rock is really high, huge overhanging limestone walls everywhere! And the view up there is simply amazing. It's a pretty magical place to be. Until now I have just been enjoying beautiful routes, from 7a to 8b. Some days ago I managed to climb L'ami de tout le monde, the most repeated 8b in Ceuse. What an amazing route! I didn't expect to send it so soon, considering the fact that I didn't even get close to the top in my tries before. I was actually just enjoying the moves and found myself clipping the anchor on my 3rd day of working.

Besides I also did my first 7c+ onsight, Mirage, without realizing it, thinking I was just warming up. Pretty nice line though! Right now I have got a bit less then a week left. There are many more routes I want to climb, so enough to do for now. It's time to walk up that mountain again to climb!
