We just finished our one month trip around Europe. It was awsome.
|Preparing new equipment for new trip|
stop was in Briancon. There we were climbing some easier routs in the crags
around. Some nice routes I also found in the middl of the town on the
competition wall where I did good in qualification round and in semifinals I
fell a little too soon.

Next stop was Ailefroide. There we were climbing some granite multi pich
routes and for the dinner I did some bouldering on the blocks around camping. Nothing
new but it's always fun to climb there.

Now it was time for Ceuse. Nice walk for warming up and even nicer lohg
routes. I like this place, especialy sectors where there is not so many people
and you can climb without waiting in line.
We had enough of France so we had to change country. So we continued to
Switzerland. Because of some car problems we had to stop somewhere nowhere and
we were forced in another rest day. Soon we continued (without power steering)
to Interlaken where we found one nice area called Lehn. I liked routes there,
so I did one 8b on sight and one 8c+ (2nd day). Next was Gimmelwald.

were too lazy to walk 3 hours we took cablecar and than had a nice 30min walk
to the crag. There are no easy routes so it was a little harder to warm up so
Anja decidet to have a rest day and rather try to do some good photos from
above. I was also kind of lazi so I was just trying to try to climb. For the
photos was good enough I think :). One more area we visited in Interlake caled Wildersvil
but we didn't like it so much. Maybe because of the weather.
On the way to Ötztal we did one more stop on Susten pas where I was
bouldering, Anja was climbing 100m long routes and Barques was enjoying snow running. So we were all happy.

Ötztal is a place where we are always looking forward to stop by. We visited
some new crags here, old ones, did some multi pich routes and in the evening training
in a gim for the Rokstars competition.

Last stop was in Stuttgart on adidas Rockstars competition. I was looking
forward to this comp since I had it in a good memory from last year.
Qualification round went good but the semifinals... I have no idea what
happend. I was just falling of again and again. It justwasn't my day again. Good
thing was I could relax and enjoy waching the finals from the crowd.
Now we're back in Slovenia and getting ready for the next world cup in
Munich. See you there.
