As promised, here are the photos from when Luc and I went out to the Calanques de Sormiou (almost exactly a year later!) for some outdoor rock climbing. I’m really happy I got introduced to this sport, it’s fun, it’s exciting, it’s the perfect amount of scary and challenging. There’s really something about being at the point of “argghh, my toes hurt, I don’t know how to go higher from here, I can’t find a good grip! Also, if I fall I will die.” and then thinking “Ok, I got this, just one more try” then finding good grip and moving higher until you reach the top. And all of this while the sun is setting in the corner of your eye. The Calanques de Sormiou next to Marseille is such a beautiful and inspiring place in itself that you would be happy to just sit and look at it – looking at it while hanging from a rope, with the wind in your hair and having just challenged yourself and climbed a rock – now that’s something special.
