The Wall, a space the same size of an apartment, is an oasis of tranquility within the heart of chaotic and hectic central Buenos Aires.
Here, leaving behind their daily routine, people gather in the evening for their shared passion for mountain-climbing, for the struggle, the adventure and the eternal fight between the soul and the body. This particular type of climb, called “bouldering” without ropes and not higher than four meters is held indoors basically as a training site.
The aim is to practice after-work and to prepare for incoming weekends with mountain fellows. Climbing is comparable to any artistic activity, wherein each chooses their own route to reach the summit. In front of the cliff and multicolor pitches, ideas as well as mountain projects are discussed and exchanged.
The simple philosophy of exerting oneself and get rid of everything else that is superficial, is what draws me to this type of activity.
The entire set of pictures was made in February 2014 at the indoor boulder of the “Centro Andino Buenos Aires”, Argentina.
