After almost 3 decades of climbing, Fred continues to grow his appreciation for nature and how we (as humans) fit into the context of the bigger world around us.

Ubatuba is one of the best and most beautiful bouldering areas in Brazil. UBT Boulder is a climbing festival that happens every year and gathers climbers from all around the country.
A quick recap of past week, that illustrates well what happens when you put a psyched crew of strong climbers in the middle of tons of good boulders.
In 2000, Fred Nicole put up Oliphant’s dawn in Rocklands. Supposedly, he had difficulties making up his mind regarding the grade, saying it was somewhere between 8B and 8C. Now, after 12 years, Nalle Hukkataival has become the first to repeat it.
On the 19th of July at circa 12:00 local time British alpinists Sandy Allan and Rick Allen returned to Base Camp safe and sound after having reached the summit of Nanga Parbat on 15 July and after having completed the historic first traverse of the long Mazeno Ridge.
Few words required to introduce this week edition: highballs, hard climbs, motivation, inspiration. Having a crew like Michele Caminati, Daniel Woods, Nalle Hukkataival, Dave Graham and Chad Greedy in the place helps too.
A few days after daughter Brooke aged 11 year sent “Welcome to Tijuana” 8c, Mother Robyn Erbesfield-Raboutou managed to send the route yesterday.
At Rodellar in Spain 11-year-old Brooke Raboutou has repeated Welcome to Tijuana. In doing so she has become the youngest climber in the world to master this grade.
