Short videos


I have to admit that I was missing in the action to not write anything on this blog Well! Shortly I will say that I went to Paris to make some photo-shooting with the Nograd athletes and after it I went two days in Font for the stretching. But thankfully I met couple friends in a restaurant and then I got trapped by the climbing. I am mostly meaning that I did not prepare the April trip to climb in Font and somewhere else. Since I met again Jimmy Webb after the good times of last years, suddenly the squad was formed with him, Dave Graham, Tchad Greedy, Isabelle Faus, Keenan Takahashi, Kevin Smith, Hannah Donnely and Parker Yamakasi. What supposed to be a week trip became a month and half trip. After the hot temperatures and good projects done, we moved to Balvonia and Magic Wood !!! Now you know why I am absent of this blog See you around guys!!! Philipe Ribiere

The last week, I went for a trip with a friend of mine to discover a crag calls Mollans

First I am not so fan of the lead climbing but I treat myself.  In fact, it is not true that I don't like. I should say more I have fears to fall like a beginners. In 2003, before to create my Handi-Grimpe event, I was checking and climbing some easy routes in a new crag that we were bolted with 3 friends. This day I climbed this easy line when on the top I broke the hold and I felt 10 meters. That is ok! But when the belayer is not attentive at all, I finished my falling on my head and knocked my right knew. Finally, I finish off in emergencies with points on my head. Since this day I am cowardly !!!

With the sunshine, we drove to the south of the France near Buis-les-Baronnies where at least I did the Youth National Competition in 1995. For a good memory and important memory when it was the first time that climbers see for the first time, an handicapped in the competition. It was me ! From this competition came the idea to develop the Para-climbing category came to my mind to finally exist after  13 years of work as a volunteer (not by choice).

Only 2hours driving, we parked on the place. Despite the strong wind, I had the envy to crush lines.
On the positive emotions, I warmed up in the 6a+ route where I could not feel any sensation in my fingers. That is really weird to enjoy the climbing. I thought I could be like R-Kelly who believe he can fly.

My partner set up the rope for me on the next challenge 7a route. Huge step on my climbing, after the training with my slovenian trainer who can see now the benefits of our hard works. I move really better with my body because my fingers are stronger but for sure because they are more extended.
Like says a good friend of mine " you have a second life of climber. So many opportunities are front of me".
I really starts to think the truth and It is so awesome to climb like valid climbers.

Well! I finished my trip after only 3 days of this F@@G wind who stopped my motivation.  Glad to see how I progress a lot, I can not wait to push and to train more for the next challenges.

Keeping my promises to you !!!

Dear friends. This week-end I will launch with a partnership, the french Grimper Magazine, my next movie that I will offer to you, for free.

Important step in my career, I want to share with you what is also to be for the last 15 years as a professional rock climber. I dedicate the movie to all the climbing community to help me (on somehow) to grow as a valid person as I should.

Old Casa Prod - 2003

I dedicate the last 13 year to push the international federations to create what it calls for already 5 years, the Para-climbing category (for handicapped people). When I stopped to travel for a year after 26 years to visit all around the world, I dedicate my time to clean up and to open new boulders in my paradise because I find out I did not participate so much in the evolution of climbing. Now I do a lot !!!!

I am proud to get the full package to consider myself being in the climbing world which always accepted me as a HUMAN.
By the sarcastic and ridiculous politic ambient, it is my gift to propose you to consider your neighbors as a member of family, not to going in the extremist action to kill them with stupid arguments which makes ALL THE WORLD in the sadness because these presidents think that they are the best and superiors people in the universe. They forget that we are a SMALL to compare than the nature who slap us by the climate changes. BE CAREFUL!

Self Portrait- 2016

Now, we step on the CIVIL WAR. What to do to stop it? BE AN HUMAN !!!!

I really thank my sponsors who follow me and helps me during my entire career : Petzl -  La Sportiva Nograd 

I really thank all people who did not believe on me during the project of the Para-climbing

I really thank all people who came, come and will cone to listen my lecture. I wish you the best Peace and LOVE Philippe Ribiere- rock climber
