it can take some time till you are back home from your "after-work-climbing"... but with a little FA in the bag time did not really matter at all... - till the next morning..;)
After I was snowed out from Sustenpass some nice "Fön-Wind" was forecasted for Chironico. I have not been climbing in Chironico for over a year so I was very excited to touch this nice gneiss again. After a full day of work I was back in Chironico at for the first time after my injury - the first time after over one year. It was a pity it was already dark (7pm) but friction felt great.
|"bouldering is so basic you know, you need nearly no equipment at all... ";)|
|working the crux moves... on and off.. ;)|
|"cat on a hot thin roof" - such a good line, really good moves -|
|Sticking the BIG move|
|entering the "easy" 6C copout... could not feel anything anymore... super tired as well|
|good thing you can't hear me... ;)|
Then I went down to the "Fish-Boulder" and quickly refigured out my beta for "Insanity of grandeur" - linked the sequences - what a good night in the woods this was... ;)
|"insanity of grandeur": what a LINE, RADest moves, one of the BEST in ticino for sure|
After that very good session I was thinking that I may could have had a chance on that one before winter would hit ticino. But you know it already: Snow arrived....
...and with a classroom full of kids with fever (They are so motivated (afraid of getting minus-lessons) they are at school even if they are ill - that's what happens when people don't think straight when messing with incentives %&*ç+"). It was a matter of time till "it" would get me as well and "it" got me well!!! So I will need a few days to be back on track but I am sure we will see the second ascent of "Insanity of Grandeur" very soon - "somebody" else is getting really close...
