Jacky Godoffe - Master of Moves

Its a short film about bouldering and routesetting - the part that resonates with me as a climber is Jacky's emphasis on the importance of a solid mental game - even as a dedicated technical rock climber he reflects many points that hit home for me as an alpinist and are very much a part of my personal training.

Something about me that you might not know is that bouldering and alpinism are my two favorite facets of the larger sport of climbing (though inarguably I pretty much suck at bouldering compared to alpinism). Here in rural Alaska, even the bouldering is an untapped resource for creativity and fitness as there are so many untouched boulders in places that require dedication to reach In both alpinism and bouldering I find myself in induced states of increased awareness - of myself and my body to be sure, but of the world and the greater possibilities of connection, space, and time.

I wish you the best as you seek your potential in whatever happens to fascinate you.
