Les Vosges, Lorraine, France. Home of Joan of Arc, and some great sport climbing. Here, my boyfriend is trying to plan how he is going to do this sport route. The rock here is tough, as it's porphyritic, and the holds are trickier than they seem. The view from above was gorgeous, but getting there took a bit of blood, sweat, and tears (literally.) Even though he only has been climbing for a little over a year, he's already better than me!
