Climbing in Guillestre, Mont-Dauphin, Simoust, Toernoux, Clapeyto, Rue de Marques

Hi beautiful people welcome back.

We take you along our Rock Climbing adventures in area of Guillestre and Brainçon in the south of France around the Alps. We did some new rock climbing adventurers in several crags sectors like Mont Dauphin, Simoust, Tournoux, Clapeyto and Rue de Marques. There is so much variety of different rock: limestone, granite and conglomerate. I made a large fall from a slippery pebble and had to heal for a couple of days. We invited some young ladies from the camping to go for their first climbing experience. We had mainly had good weather with sometimes a rain shower but mostly very nice.

We enjoyed the food and environment on our camping. Please leave us a comment if you want any information from us πŸ˜€ πŸ™‹πŸ»‍♀️πŸ™‹‍♂️ Sandra and Jan.

Rock Climbing Trip Provence France First Time Again

First Time Climbing again πŸ˜€. We take you along on our Rock Climbing Trip in the Provence in France this early spring. This is just part 1. We are both recovering from injuries. Jan from his shoulder pain and Sandra from here knee surgery. During the recovery period we made plans to go on vacation in the Provence in France. It was questionable if Sandra could walk on uneven paths and if it was possible to do some climbing. We rented a nice small Gite called La Bergerie Biciclette which was directly next to a vineyard and a limestone cave below the house.

The area's that we climbed on in the region of Mollans-sur-Ouvèze Part 1 were Baume Rousse, Baume Noir and Dentelles de Montmirail. In Part 2 we will show you other area's.

Sandra's Knee Surgery Recovery: 3 months later start Climbing Again?

This is Sandra her story! 

Sandra was sitting on the floor next to the couch and tried to stand up when it happened. Her knee was hurt quite intens and she could not move at all. 

This was half September 2021 The diagnose was a “flapped” meniscus. It took more than 3 months and a knee surgery before she could start trying to walk again. Before it was a wheelchair or walking with sticks. 

A few weeks after the knee surgery she started recovery with guidance of physiotherapists of Bredero. During the recovery we made plans to go on vacation in the Provence in France. 

It was questionable if she could walk on uneven paths and if it was possible to do some climbing. She made progress, Please see the journey of Sandra to recover to be able to climb again.

WILD CAMPING IN A FARM FOREST | Bushcraft | Tarp Shelter | Overnight | Campfire Cooking

Hello Lovely People, here the 2 Small on our Blog Jan-San-Climbing,

As you might have noticed we started a YouTube Channel to document all our adventures. We are off coarse climber but we do much more than that like bush-crafting, camping, running, mountain biking, traveling and many more activities that are always exciting. We try to upload one video per 2 weeks so than you when to expect the next one.

We just loaded a video this Friday and in this Video we show you our Bush-craft Overnight Wild Camping Trip in a Farm Forest.

Since Sandra is still recovering from her knee surgery (meniscus flap) and hardly can walk we took it easy and we divided the tasks. Sandra cutting the wood for fire and me doing all the walking jobsπŸ˜….  So Sandra and I went hiking thru some forests in an Agricultural area in the Netherlands close to "Den Hout".  The wind was again quite strong so we had to search for a sheltered spot for our Tarp Shelter. In this agricultural region there are a lot of ditches and waters with small forests and bushes. In those bushes some old farmer machines were located that got our attention. We found a nice place but the wind was constantly changing. Our tarp almost flew in the air due to the heavy wind or storm πŸ˜… so we placed it  a few meters behind some trees and bushes. We used wood stumps to keep the tarp down and to reinforce the wind stability.  When the tarp was up we made a open fire place with some reflecting shields made from wood sticks to prevent the wind from blowing the fire out.  But the wind turned and blew the smoke into our tarp πŸ˜₯. Eventually we moved the tarp slightly and the fire pit as we got quite hungry. It took us quite some effort to find dry wood but we managed to find some dead trees that Sandra could cut with a handsaw. This was a Life-saver!

When the weather settled we could start cooking on the open fire with a tripot and our small barbecue stand. We had a great dinner.

It was a very relaxing night with wind howling on the tarp, it was not cold at all so we slept as  roses. In the morning when we woke up I directly made a fire for breakfast with bacon & eggs and coffee. I went out of the small the forest to see some cows that were mooing for food from the farmers. The lady farmer came with here small tractor to give them some food, sweet!

We even spotted some sun when ramping the camp down again. It was a great adventure!

Abandoned Secret Trad Climbing Area in Kottenheim Germany

 Hi All,

It has been a while since we shared a post. Main reason is our YouTube activities.

Being on a climbing trip in Europe we found the time to edit the video that we took in Kottenheim and Ettringen in Germany last month.

We went there to find a group of 3 routes called "De Drei Zwerge". Since it is not often climbed we called it a Abondened Secret Area πŸ˜€.

REVIEW OF SALEWA - Women's Wildfire GTX - Approach shoes

Hi Guys or Girls,

Sandra just wanted to give her personal review on her Salewa-Women's Wildfire GTX Approach shoes.

It is already the third pair of these approach shoes that she bought in the last 10 years.

Most important reason for her is the perfect balance between being a lightweight approach shoe and still sturdy enough for real demanding tracks and rock. With these GTX shoes you can count on their reliability in all weather conditions. They stay even dry when passing rainy grass areas. She is using the shoes in both warm and cold weather conditions without any problems just adapting her socks when required. So please size them correctly for winter socks. In summer, the shoes breath sufficiently to keep cool. The sole feels very secure on rocky surfaces when scrambling up to your climbing routes. The climbing zone on the toes even can give some additional support when climbing small passages.

Every 4 years of service and using them quite intense during every climbing weekend on rock approaches the shoes now are being used as mountain biking shoes where they get really worn out. Nevertheless, very good shoes.

San bought already here new pair of Wildfire GTX and continues to use them.

Thanks to Salewa for making these magnificent shoes.
