  • KIZILKULE-Niğde/Aladağlar(17 Temmuz 2019)Tam yirmibeş yıl sonra(1994-2019), partnerim Emre Altoparlak ile girip denediğimiz fakat devam etmeyip döndüğümüz duvar rotasını tamamladım, Serhat Alkivilcim ile. Nasıl mutlu oldum, nasıl anlamlandım anlatamam. Gerçekte konsantre olamayacak kadar içdünyası karışık bir halde... Komik bir şekilde Dipsiz Göl tarafında tırmanacakken, arabamın Sokulupınar’dan Arpalık Yayla’ya tırmanamamasıyla orada Sokulu’da kaldık ve hedefi değiştirerek, Narpuz Vadisi’nden girerek bir anda buraya Kızılkule’ye yöneldik. İşte ben! Zihnimdeki onyılları aşmış merak: devam edebilseydik Emre ile karşımıza ne çıkacaktı bu rotada? Artık buna yanıt bulabilecektim belki de... tırmanabilirsek... Çünkü berbat durumdaydım! Dağcılığı bırakmalı mıyım? Yaşantım boyunca bana güç veren öfkemle beraber? Şu bolca parlatılan ve gözümüze sokulan turistik dağcılığı yapamayacağıma göre! Tanrım, geçmiş... Artık teslim mi olmalıyım, zavallı bulduğum insan döküntüleri gibi sefil bir yaşama adım atarak? Formal hayat/Formaldehit! insan odaklı sefih bir hayat...Herneyse, çıktık, bitirdik onu, duvarı! Gene ölmek üzere. Sabah dört’te kalk, dağın/rotanın dibine yürü-gerçekte Kızılkule Bozkaya Dağı’nın alt parçasıymış-o zamanki(25 yıl) korkunu bir kez daha yaşa, tırman! Serhat harikaydı, destek ötesi bir partnerlik. Onüç saat sonra uzun süren yorucu inişle beraber arabadaydık, medeniyette!!
İtalyanlar’ın rotayı terkedip/tamamlayıp indiği, bizim şansa yaslanıp geçebildiğimiz ölümcül pasaj sonrası... “Serhat, bir çocuğun olsa asla bu pasajı çıkamazdın!”.
Biz neden dönmüşüz henüz elli metre tırmanıp, yirmibeş yıl önce? Bunu anladım,  çıkıp inince; VI, A1(yapay) ötesi bir zorluk! Birçok kez olan, ünlü bir dağcının da söylediği: “Başıma gelecekleri bilsem bu rotayı çıkmazdım!”.
Biz A1 yapmadık, rotayı geri inmeden zirveye bağladık, yedibuçuk saatlik üst kısmı korkunç tırmanışın üzerine... Bir de dağcılığı daha da duyumsamak için(!) sırttan ana zirveye, Bozkaya zirvesine yürüyerek. Diğerleri gibi zor oldu. Yaklaşık kırk yıldır tekrarı olmayan bu muhteşem İtalyan rotası, üstüne eklediğimiz korkunç ekle bitti. #climbing #alpinclimbing #mountainering #dağcılık #alpinrockclimb

  • TAOFit Climbing Hangout -Movement Breakdown 
I love everything about this video. 
One of the biggest learning hurdles that I see with all new climbers (including myself) is with finding the ease and flow of the wall by playing with different body positions. 
In her first attempt, you can see how Abi’s hips and shoulders remain relatively square to the wall as she tried to match her right hand. With the slant in that double hand hold, she was wasting a ton of energy, and the position didn’t feel solid or safe.

In between attempts, I offered her a small suggestion - turn her right hip towards the wall and relax into the position. You can see what a difference that small adjustment made in her super smooth second attempt. But that next reach is big and scary. 
She did the smart thing and came down to allow that new movement accomplishment to download into her body, which also allowed me to offer her one more suggestion... connect her toe drive and arm pull together into that next reach. 
A super common disconnect for climbers is not utilizing leg drive and overly reliance on upper body brute strength. Our upper body musculature is inefficient without our legs which means less time on the wall and increased injury risk. 
On the third attempt Abi seamlessly integrates both new moves and finishes the send with relative ease. The beauty of this accomplishment is that her body has discovered new awareness and skill. This is like leveling up from a class one to class five warrior. Those two new moves are permanently downloaded and available for use on both the wall and in life. 
I want to give some extra kudos to Abi. She is a very skill Yoga Therapy Instructor with a solid base of body awareness she’s developed through her personal movement practice and it shows. 
She is also a really good coach. The biggest sign I look for in a movement coach is their capacity to receive coaching and integrate words into new body awareness. You’re not a good coach if you cannot be coached. @abirobinsyoga is top notch. I encourage you to follow her.

  • CELEBRATE⁣
⁣
Celebrate your failures. Had such a fun day at the climbing gym - and I couldn’t figure out a lot of the routes. But that just means I’m trying to get better!! Not sure if any of my workouts would be fun if I mastered it on the first try. ⁣
⁣
Today’s vids are mostly of me failing (aka getting better). Climbing up walls is fun but hard work. ⁣
⁣
Yes, the first video of me in a handstand is correct - the start for that route has your hands on the hold by the floor 😂. ⁣
⁣
Have a wonderful week!!

  • Nominee 7 / #homeclimbinggymoftheyear 2019! 
The Cathedral

For many of us, climbing is something larger than life. And this #homeclimbinggym certainly is larger than just a normal woody. They call it - the Cathedral!

Most of us dream of making space at home for a little home climbing gym. Some people expand their dreams to a gym in the form of a separate building. This woody cave serves as nothing less than a playhouse for the dedicated climber. Place a bed underneath and you got all the house you need!

For the ones with an opportunity, we recommend a holy pilgrimage to @littlepata to sacrifice some skin in the Cathedral!

  • Best wishes to Alex Puccio who sustained a significant right knee injury last night in the Finals of #womanup2019  at Dogpatch Boulders in San Francisco.  After leaving the event by ambulance, and spending the night under evaluation, what do you think she did today?  She showed up to teach her coaching clinics in a knee brace of course. .
.
She says she’ll have an MRI once she’s back in Boulder, but believes she has sustained significant injuries to her meniscus, MCL and possibly the ACL as well.  This is not the same knee she injured back in 2015.

  • Kastamonu bence ülkemizin gizli kalmış cenneti. Gezilecek harika yerleri var ve Ilıca Şelalesi’de o yerlerden birisi ❤️
-
Küre dağlarında yemyeşil ormanların içinde tam bir doğa harikası düşünün. Her ne kadar suyun rengi biraz çamurlaşsa da normalde turkuaz 💙 Keşfedileli çok olmadı ama turistikleşmeye başlamış bile. Piknik alanları vs var. 2-3 saat vakit geçirebilirsiniz. Suya da giriliyor ayrıca. ✌🏼
❗️Giriş: Öğrenci 2,5₺, Yetişkin 5₺
❗️Ulaşım: Arabanızla rahat bir şekilde ulaşabilirsiniz. Şelale girişinde 5₺’lik bir otopark ücreti var.
