Winter Conditions in Yosemite Valley

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.

Perfect Rock

Eigernordwand La Vida es Silbar and Deep Blue Sea

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

Greenland Diary Episode 1: first days in Nanortalik

Finally arrived in Nanortalik, we realised that our gear hadn`t arrived yet. So we spend our time sailing around with our small rental Zodiac. Actually it`s quiet fun to be independent and being able to visit so many beautiful places.

Anyway I`m happy that today our gear arrived and we can head to our first goal, trying to freeclimb a hard aid route on the 1000m South Face of Ulamertoq. We are definitively off now for 27 days. Yess!
