first it was planed to go to murgstal. sustenpass had forecasted rain so the plan was to meet "gu" and his girlfriend and try a bit on "entlinge" and a new, very nice compression-line from fred nicole, called "bourgonne".
just in the minute before leaving home i checked the webcam from sustenpass and saw the road totally dry. quick check of several weatherstations and webcams and it was clear the the "foen-wind" had kicked in, and that ment: no rain and warm weather (10+C at 2000m) .... so it was clear i HAD to go to sustenpass ;) a quick call to gu (who - or course - sent "bourgonne") and off i was with angela to sustenpass again.

|pic from last week when the grip was perfect! THE move i go down whatever i try. the day in the pic i could not feel the crimp anymore. this time my foot slipped off... pic is a screenshot from gu's susten-movie|
on the one hand i was pleased to climb so far in pretty greasy conditions but on the other hand i really wonder what will be next. it seems i just can not climb that f**** last hard move, doesn't matter what, "something" goes wrong. what will be next?
at least the weather is incredibly good up there! can't remember a late fall like this! winter-weather seems to still hold back... so next wednesday i have another chance to mess up that final hard move...
