on and OFF...

at 1900m - HOT!!! 
during the last month i had a lot of work to do and so not that much time for climbing (1-2 a week). but as the weather was pretty shitty it was not too worse to suffer through. that he forecast was wronger then ever did not help too much as well to keep the psyche high. i got rained out several times at a forecasted NICE day.... and there was the best weather (to watch in the webcam) when rain was forcasted..., then the heat came... 25.5C at 1900m is HOT...

a forecasted NICE, SUNNY DAY!!!
the frequent RAIN was a problem because like that HIGHLANDER never stopped SEEPING... so i went to magic wood once, cause that kind of weather serves best conditions for the "neverendingstory". unfortunately my right knee is still too sore (from the hard heelhooks at the "fisch") for the intense heelhooking you need there...

aluminium works fine - even if the friction is not that good anymore (in a  45 steep wall). but better then grabbing a wet hold...

the slot at the left (also in the 45steepness) was not once dry during the last 5weeks... 

FINALLY it got sunny, drier and colder again. it was great to feel the cold and the grip again. instantly i felt fresh and very awake - it was great to escape the daily HEAT (30+C) in the city!!! also my girlfriend angela joined me for the first time since her acl-surgery (last november) and she had her first outdoorboulders done again - GREAT effort! having her up there climbing was great motivation and despite beeing bit out of shape i got nearly through the crux - but dryfired off at the end! it was SOOOOO windy (pads where blown away again and again...) it was just toooo DRY (i did not even used chalck that day...., but kept my tips wet!!!) - CRAZY MOUNTAINs!!! its getting time for the summer-breake...

its soooo nice, when its nice... ;)
