SHORT TERM PERSONAL GOALS:
LONG TERM CLIMBING GOALS:
I’d like to continue practising climbing the way I do today, while sharing common vision with the brands that support me while fascinating me at the same time. Would be great to continue collaborating with them contributing to improve their visibility and Image throughout my personality and my WAY of climbing.
LONG TERM PERSONAL GOALS:
-Trying to find a job in the outdoor market, like being implicated in the development of technical climbing products such as climbing shoes for exemple….. At least be active in this market and provide brands with my experience
-Get a house, a wife and a garden J
Favorite Climbing Areas:
Saint-Léger du Ventoux (Fra), Venasque (Fra), Blue Mountains (Australia), Hueco (USA), Rock Land (South Africa), Fontainebleau.
Best day of climbing:
Hard question since I always go climbing when I want and have fun …!!
For sure I do have some great souvenir like those days with my girlfriend (being on a multipitches root with this magic scenic view of Thailand with Tonsai and the islands around) or intensively climbing in Fontainebleau (8 hours in a raw) with my best friends without feeling tired…..
Your favorite climb:
List at least 5 reasons why you like Sterling Rope
1: Because I met Paul Niland, and he is a nice guy!
2: Because it’s not so famous in France, and I would love to contribute to make it more visible and famous in this market and even in Europe (be an actor to help or improve its implementation)
3: Because I had a Sterling Rope rope (some pics here), for my trip around the World 2008 that I did with my girlfriend and I really found it was a good rope that resisted to all conditions that we had.
4: Because while using Sterling Rope when working on difficult access I could pretend bringing you some more “product visibility” in this field as well (this area is known for “consuming”a lot of rope)
5: Because it s known for being good and reliable quality, because Sterling rope values talks to me and how could I dislike it? J
