Nur gerade 3 Tage musste ich in El Chalten (Argentinien) abwarten bis wir loslegen konnten. Mit meinem langjährigen Kletterpartner Matteo Della Bordella stiegen wir schwer beladen ins Torre Valley, dem vergletscherten Tal zwischen Cerro Torre und Fitz Roy. Weiterlesen
Als das Wetter noch ewig schön war, bin ich mehrmals mit Laddy und Simu an die Parete d`Osogna gewandert. Bester Granit, psychisch anspruchsvolle Kletterei und die Einsamkeit lockten uns die 1000m Höhendifferenz ins Biwak hoch.
Nebst einer komplett Bohrhaken freien Erstbegehung und der Ultrageilen Climbtheline vergnügte ich mich noch mit einem Freikletter Projekt. Sobald das Wetter bessert gehts weiter…
After Yosemite we found warmer and sunnier conditions in las vegas red rocks – good cragging, bouldering and a bunch of trad turned out to be right mix of fun and training for us. Since it was still too cold to climb one of the long routes in the canyons, we used our cams for climbing the great red roof, a very funny climb which is very thankful for the given 5.13
During our last days in yosemite, we found back to energy and could do some proper climbing. Weiterlesen
After some days in the valley, the next coldfront arrived and snowed in richly the whole Yosemite. It`s hard to stay motivated when plans have to be changed every day. An attempt on Lurking Fear, a shorter route on el cap, failed because of the wet and falling ice. At least we got some beautiful views those days.
At the same time we reached california, also a front with bad weather rolled over yosemite valley and covered the golden granit with a cold and icy curtain. Weiterlesen
Mit Sandra konnte ich diesen Sommer einige Klassiker im Berner Oberland Klettern. Ein grosses Vergnügen und ein ebenso grosses Privileg für mich. Merci und Bravo!
Some Weeks ago, there was this great summertime and I escaped the heat of August to the Eiger North Face with Matteo. Since the central part still looked wet, we decided to climb deep blue sea as a warm up and going on for la vida es silbar the next two days. So we did three days long, what we like the most; climbing, climbing and drinking beer in the bivy.
Deep blue sea is nicely bolted. It has some mandatory moves but in the end it`s not dangerous. And the route is also not so long. La vida es silbar has some sandbagged pitches. One really must climb for the given grades on the hard pitches. But there are plenty of bolts. It seems that it was drilled from bolt to bolt on the hard sections.
Anyway it was a nice adventure with a good friend
So many nice climbs during the good weather this summer. Here some pics of a climb I did a few weeks ago with Tim Weiterlesen
After a total of 10 days climbing on the wall, we wanted to see more of greenlands unique nature. Weiterlesen
