The Geoquest-Team has resumed its involvement in the Balcans this year. Once again an international team was at the starting line.
The project was an ascent of the 2486m Papingut Mountain in the south of Albania, as well as a quest to find new sport climbing possibilities.

Paradise Lost and Regained
By Simon Litchfield
‘If you can’t be good, be safe, and if you can’t be safe, be good’. Why then is everything epic this and epic that these days? I’m not talking about boulderers who get a little scared half way up a Diff: that’s not epic, all that is required is a pep talk from Mr. T to stop with the jibber jabber. And I am not talking about getting a minibus stuck in a tunnel, which may have been an odyssey but was certainly no epic worthy of Homer. No, I am talking about proper epics. Proper epics are a bit like STIs. They should be avoided at all costs, they are not enjoyable to have, there is a lack of protection, you think you might die and it’s a relief when you are rid of them. The only difference is that you are probably having fun when you get an STI.
Geoquest is proud to be asked by the developers to make a guidebook of this largest bouldering area of the world.

Economic crisis…Then we can afford an expensive vacation this year.
Iceland wouldn't be bad. Has long been on the list and there's something to climb too. Although it's a family vacation, but 2-3 days of climbing I can definitely scrape out.
From those who use those weird knotted slings and hopefully survive

A new DVD at Geoquest!
The big city monkeys are going. And we can meet them anywhere: in the park, at the bridge, at the monument, and even at the high-rise!
