|snowy north, sunny ticino - NICE ;)|
Its always amazing how things are going on after a break. Last week i still felt kind of weak but had a short moment of "power" going through my body. I climbed the nice left exit of "aviator" at paese-sector in chironico (7B+), tried around on "souvenir" (without pocket) 8A/+ - but the move into and from the undercling felt miles away.

This week i came back and after one hour of punting around my body kind of remembered what it was like to pull hard. I did the undercling-move and it felt just great. I rested for five minutes, chalcked up, sat down, pulled through the crux and sent.
|skipping the "pocket" (between my right arm and knee) makes this boulder just one of the best in its grade in chironico|
Later i was getting repeatetly solid contact on the rail of "no mystery" which is unclimbed after a break but was just not able to hold on - i was already too tired. But it was a great day and i wonder what will be possible next week, should be around 8C when i can keep up the speed from last week... ;)
|to finish the day i had a nice dinner with my lovely girlfriend. the food was delicious, the wine just great - perfect ending of a perfect day!|
