Picture flashback: Close to the skies..

Stefan seemingly climbing towards the heavens on Mallorca some years back. Deep water solo; whatever happened to it? For a while it was the one and only climbing spoken of in the media, today it seems to have been exchanged for indoor bouldering competitions.. Most climbers today seem to prioritize training on plastic holds all year around?

Come to speak of it; tonight one of the few competitions I actually like to watch takes place at K2 in Stockholm, Tierra Boulder battle, with only strong female climbers in the spotlight, most of them from the very top level of elite climbers in the world. Starting at 20.00 swedish time, I do recommend it as saturday night entertainment, it will be streaming live online. But come tomorrow I hope to feel some real rock again and forget the seductive spell of plastic holds..
