Routes 9a and Harder


Year and half of my life

We experience different moments throughout our lives. Some of them hopeful and glorious, others disappointing and painful. The book shows you some of those moments, whether great milestones or glimpses of ordinary life. Those brief flashes, no matter how insignificant they may seem, are important for me. You can enjoy just studying each on its own, but put them together and you will get a completely new picture, which is hiding more than it might have seemed. Hopefully, once you read through the book, you will have a better understanding of who I am and how much climbing truly means to me.
