It's all about balance !

Since I bought my slackline I only tried 4 or 5 times. So I'm not very good but I can stay a little bit on the line without falling off. Last time I brought it at work and trained a bit with Franck. Not bad location !

But I always wanted to do that above the water. It looks so cool ! So today when I came back from work, I decided to go straight to the beach and set the line. The line was about 1.5m above the water, but for me it looked much higher. I stepped up and walked ... 2m after I fell off. To much pressure and not enough training :-)

Blue Bell - Best Sport Climbing in Sydney

If you like steep stuff, I would much recommend to check out Blue Bell in Sydney South. Have a look to the guide on The Australian Climbing Association website (Blue Bell online guide). There are 17 routes graded from 18 (5c+) to 26 (7b+) , with an average of grade 21 (6b+). Basically the wall is about 15m high and 10 degrees steep. The routes are well secured with lots of bolts. With Laurent we onsighted one 21 (6b+), three 23 (7a) and redpointed one 25 (7b). We had such a great time on this wall.
