Before I say hello to you, I have to say: sorry. I don't know why, but I forgot to push the release button of my camera. I'm really sorry for that tiny photo booty!
As some of you know I have been in Ticino for the past few days. It was a delicious cocktail of good conditions, nice old&new friends and tons of cool problems.
The first two days went pretty well and I started the trip with a one session ascents of Powerstripes and Aktivit destra (4.Go). Worked from that, I took the following rainy day for a rest.
Well regained, we went to Brione. No. 1 on my list has been Atlantis. It's an impressive problem, but the very single moves have been already close to my limit. No doubt, I have to put effort into this beast again!
Once the rain came back again. We choose the only ones dry place for a funny "Feuchtgrip" session at Palpa Tina. It has been quite easy climbing with far moves on open-jugs and a tricky (when wet) mantle finish, which really was a battle for me! Another great problem is Senza Denti, whereof we climbed during a all-out motivated night session. Great fun!
The last day has been epic. At first I could settle an old score, wrestling myself up the Tomahawk. Next the rain began to fall again, so time pressed to climb Dr.med.dent., before he would become to wet. What a nice wet ascent.
It always seems like you are the strongest when you leave, right?
Happy X-Mas, Kaier.
