Canadian Insanity! – Updated

Yves at a World Cup in Vail

Canadian Yves Gravelle (pronounced Eve) spent some time in Boulder this summer after the World Cup. He’s planning to move back this fall, but til then he’s bouldering around his home areas. He made this short video of a few cool looking problems, but it’s not until 3.33 that you get to the business–a huge campus dyno from a volume to a sidewall.  When he catches the hold Yves looks like spiderman.  It is definitely worth watching, and we’ve gotta ask, how did he think of that?!

For those who are wondering what kind of crazy guy does dynos like that, here’s a little more about Yves:

A sculpture Yves was working on. He makes movie-quality masks and sculptures.

Predator painted. Scary!

Another in progress.
Yves skipping a sloper.
Yves and his girlfriend. Recognize her? It’s Sarah from the desk at the Spot!

Update – He’s literally just started his own company for masks and sculpture which you can check out here: Beyond This World Creation and Design
