Rachele Sighinolfi deep water soloing in Mallorca, Spain
When you set out not knowing exactly what Deep Water Soloing involves, you imagine your body in the turquoise water, the hot sand between your toes, people in swimsuits and the salt on your suntanned skin. Then you start to ask yourself questions: will the rock be greasy? My wet shoes, will they grip? Do I have to hold my nose when I fall in? But above all: will I be able to fall in elegantly, or will my body get bruised all over by the impact with the sea? “Psicobloc” means “Scary Bouldering”. “You don’t realise how high you are, but when you fall it’s a shock how long you’re falling for, you’re in the air for ages and you’re still falling, falling, then … splash. And every time you’re surprised how soft the water is”.
