Hi every one,

I only have a free day on this 11th November in Peru where I am now.
After the awesome trip in Bolivia and the BLOQUEando festival, I flew by plane to Peru in Lima which is the capital.
For the first week I did a lot of conferences who gave me again the reason why I am traveling and why I keep going my messages for the handicap.
How the handicap changed my life on the better way, I got many embraces for the first talk in the University of Bautista. Some autistic people joined us to share also their experience.

to be honest, I never had in all my career so many hugs from people. I fell a lot of love and on my opinion it is why my friend Jure Breceljnik made the Wild One documentary. He believed I had to talk to the world.
On the joke now for 2 months, I decided to be the President of the World, even it is not true, and I call people to join the spirit of the love. "Peace and Love" was a slogan few years ago and I am pretty sure we all forget this principe.

An other sentences I heard from Bolivian and Peruvian people who embarrass me a bit like : "you are like El Che Guevarra" and "you arrived on the right time in this fuc...g society".
What I have to hear? I understand that we need space, love, humanity, confidence, trusts and etc.
How come we have- I included myself - a short memory of the past. We made two world wart and we are making the third one : the social war.
Our presidents are so smarts than everything goes on their sides, especially the money.
What is about the appearance with people? Who are we to judge people with an handicap? who are we to decide we have to be perfect front of the society system? Where are we going?
I take my responsibility to write and to spray this message all around the world? Some people can think - I will not blame them- that I am a pretentious man but I have my conscience to be part of the world. We like or not but the fact is I will not close my mouth. because I say some true.

After  recharging my batteries with the love, i went to Pirca and the Base Camp to make slideshows and clinics, I went to a new place called "Escomarca" where I find again a tonne of boulder. Amazing place with a bunch of potential! thank to Manolo to drive me there with his wife, Valeria and the little one Marie-jose. We were at 3700m altitude and I guaranty you that the climbing conditions changes a lot. I was not able to send an hard boulders but I was enjoying so much the silent and the peace that the climbing was not so important.

Thanks to the MON VERTICAL to prepare all this full planning and especially to Magda Chumpitaz to be my assistant for these two weeks
Thank to Vila Santa Hotel
Thank to BASE CAMP and Manolo
thank to PIRCA Climbing Gym
Thanks to have read my text and see you in Colombia.

I am really sorry not to give any news since the last July.
After the hard summer, I went home to recharge my batteries to prepare the next trip for the winter.
Between this, I was opening many boulders in my secret place in Ardeche which took me a lot of time. I was also preparing a movie to show you all potential I could find there and I am really glad to get bunch of boulders.

Now we are the 4th november and I am in Peruvia after a trip in Bolivia for the last two weeks. Sure I could tell you everything but for now  - it is late - I can show you only an interview I made in ATB television (Bolivia) with the Miss Universe 2010.

I wish to give you more news soon.

For those last days I am not in the shape but I am slowly going back to my natural way of life.
 As I professional climber I love to open new boulders and so on I wanted to give an homage to my friend, Jure Breceljnik, the filmmaker of WILD ONE who leave me alone by the death of the Wednesday.
I am still choked about all my histories but I do remember that Jure told me "If one day I die, keep the smile and the wildness for me".
This is what I am still doing for you, my brother.

I opened a new line in the Magic Wood paradise place and I gave the name of "Zivali" to my boulder. Zivali means "animal', "wild" or "sauvage". Jure was like me " Zivali".

I go again to the normal life and to enjoy the rest of the time I have in this univers

See you around the world

This winter, with PhilippeDan and Miguel, we spent a couple of weeks developing epic bouldering potential in a remote canyon high in the Eastern Hajar mountain range - the eastern most part of Arabia.
What we discovered is world class. An ancient village, a people steeped in tradition and a valley off the scale in the size and volume of boulders.
I am psyched to share the teaser for a 3 part series with you. Valley of Giants!

After my last article I just explained what was my time in France. Day after day I am glad to be here in the emptiness place which gives me the most happiness as a climber and I want share it with you.
It is like a kid who gets the gift after the Christmas time and I am in this position now. There are so many possibilities to clean and to climb those rocks. In plus I have the chance that Mrs Nature offers me cherries, blueberries, strawberries and the best is the river for myself.
I can have other words to tell you I am happy for once to leave a bit my van  to rest.
For sure you are still welcome to come to my Wild Party this week-end.

Here some pics about the exploring
