A brief visit to Lime Kiln Canyon

Kamil Sustiak

Our brief visit to Lime Kiln Canyon is a proof that even these days a single photo can still inspire. We changed our plans and visited this lime stone crag after seeing one of the photos from Jim Thornburg in his awesome "Stone Mountains" book.

The place has quite a potential and if you are tired of crack climbing and want to touch a limestone for a change it's definitely worth a visit. Above is Jen Nay at the crux of Mantis (5.12c).

More info about the area can be found here.


Photo of the Day - Basejumping in Verdon

Thanks to the amazing BlackSheep cafe in Bishop I had finally time to catch up with the internet ;-). A few older shots from the trip to Verdon last month.

It was not even five minutes since our arrival when I noticed these two super friendly guys packing their stuff. Another five minutes and I was staying at this exit point called Vent des errances.

Not being used to watching base jumpers I suddenly understood why rock climbing may seem dangerous to non-climbers. Awesome stuff Jean-Louis and Gui. Thanks for the show and such a nice welcome to the amazing Verdon Gorge!

Photo of the Day - Early morning at Buttermilk

I arrived to Bishop, the famous bouldering area in California, late last night. Was not quite sure what to expect and could not wait to wake up this morning. Thanks to the jetlag it was not that hard to be up early and here is one of the shots from my morning walk. I must say the Buttermilk area is a beautiful place and what's better the climbing here is even MORE amazing ;-) Some action shots will follow soon ...

Photo of the Day - On the Move

I am sitting on a train to Prague. The next destination is US and I should be planning the next two months right now. Instead I am thinking about the last month I spent with my family and friends. It has been such a wonderful experience to see so many great and inspiring people again.

I am feeling extremely lucky to still have such strong bonds over here. It is almost like the time I have been living on the other side of the world has not changed much. I do not take this for granted and big big thanks goes to all of you who made this visit so good :-).

Family time ... Finally!

Kamil Sustiak

Had an awesome time with my sister and Miska, my beautiful niece. It has been such a relaxing week. It would have been much harder to pack my stuff and leave if the next destination was not the "Gorges du Verdon" ;-). Thanks Janca, Jan and the little wondergirl Miska for such a great week.
