Climbing in San Fausto

SPAIN | Everybody told us not to miss this place and they were right. The place is huge with 9 different sectors. Luckily spaniards don’t want to get up early so we climbed from 8:30-11 am alone and then slowly some others came 😂 It’s perfect for intermediate climbers. The bolts are pretty far from…

Climbing in Oñati

SPAIN | First of all the basques are super open-minded and friendly! They speak a very weird language, but also spanish. And they are very happy to help you. We went the first day of our trip to spain to Oñati for climbing and did already a mistake. It was boiling hot and impossible to…

Biking Crans-Montana -Varneralp

SWITZERLAND | This monday we went biking with my dad. He had the advantage of an E-Bike which is very convenient for all the uphill parts. Our hometrail is still one of the best trails in Montana with an amazing view of the big 5s. Where: Crans-Montana, Varneralp and then all the way down to…

Mountainbiking Parpaner Rothorn

SWITZERLAND | We are still in Lenzerheide and enjoyed another trail today. We started on the Parpaner Rothorn, where the trail is quite challenging with big rocks, then it leads to a beautiful and stunning singletrail till Arosa. From there you pedal slightly uphill to Ochsenalp and then you’ll find an awesome trail till Tschierschen….

Mountainbiking in Lenzerheide

SWITZERLAND | Next stop and directly one day after the World Enduro Series: Lenzerheide. The weather was still perfect and warm and everything is in beautiful fall colors. So we went to Lenzerheide and did the Welschtobel/Furcletta trail (41km, including twice a cable car). I did it two years ago when I got my first…

Mountainbiking in Laax

SWITZERLAND | Flims/Laax is famous for mountainbiking and Carlo has never been there. So we went for the two well-known trails “Runca” and “Never ending”. We wanted to ride just a little bit, because it was supposed to be our rest day. We were tired from the weekend. But at the end (and 5 hours…

Climbing the Lobhörner

SWITZERLAND | One day last another epic place on my list waited. We went to the Bernese Oberland for the Lobhörner. Again an easy traverse (4b max), but also with a pretty impressive view on the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau! I think I liked this one better than the Gastlosen, because the scenery was more…

Climbing the Gastlosen

SWITZERLAND | It was on my bucket list for quite some time now. The traverse of the epic Gastlosen in Fribourg. It should be pretty easy but beautiful ridge climbing. It was a sunny fall day and besides us there was almost nobody around. I thought it would be crowded on a weekend, but it…

Finale Ligure & Oltre Finale

ITALY | The weather forecast wasn’t promising for the week. That’s why we decided to go again to one of our favorite places. This time our focus was on climbing so we went straight to Val Pennavaire. It’s a wild valley, not much to see, but boy it has over 2000 climbing routes! Not to…

Biking the Brazilian

SWITZERLAND | I remembered only that it was one of the best trails I’ve ever done. So I had to do it again. The trails goes through the beautiful Vallon de Réchy. From the platform you need to hike up for about 1h. From the Col de Cou the fun part starts and continues all…

Hiking in Crans Montana

SWITZERLAND | Today was a typical monday for me. I spent it outdoors with friends and we went for a long hike! Crans-Montana is so sunny and beautiful and the hiking path leads through a beautiful moonlike landscape. How I love mondays like this 💙 Where: Crans-Montana What: Hiking from Les Violettes, to Col de…

Mountainbiking Nessel

SWITZERLAND | This trail is still one of my favorites in Valais. The panorama is epic and the trail is technical, but not too hard. There were no bikers and almost no hikers, so we could enjoy it to the fullest. Where: You go up by cable car to Belalp (there is also a street…

Biking the Argentinian

SWITZERLAND | The weather forecast wasn’t great, but we wanted to go biking anyways. The Argentinian trail is 1760m uphill and 2830m downhill and we had 9h to do it 😬😅 It’s one of the best trails ever, but unfortunately it suffered a little with all the bikers. On the way up it rained a…

Traversée des Perrons

SWITZERLAND | I love traversing mountains, I love being exposed and walking ridges. This wednesday we went to the dam of Emosson and did an awesome ridge climbing tour. What a spectacular place! It’s a easy climb, but very beautiful and totally worth doing. It offers climbing, walking on a ridge, rappelling and finding the…

Mountaineering: Nadelhorn

SWITZERLAND | It’s high season for mountaineering, that means fully booked huts and a lot of mountaineers in the mountains. This weekend we went to the Nadelhorn, an easy mountain of 4327m. The hike up to the Mischabelhütte is pretty cool, it’s almost a Via Ferrata, I loved it! The hut has the most adorable…

Biking Plaine Morte – Sierre

SWITZERLAND | We had to wait one year to do this trail! Last year the cabin was closed the whole summer due to renovation and finally you can go again. The trail from the Plaine Morte glacier down to Sierre is one of the longest trails of Europe! We did 2610m descent and maybe 250m…

Biking the Sustenpass

SWITZERLAND | Biking down from the Sustenpass was a reoccurring discussion after my friends did this trail 2 years ago. They were talking about this epic trail every time we went to Hasliberg. But to do this trail you need to take the bus up to the Sustenpass first (1:22h from Meiringen). So it’s kind…

Multipitch during a thunderstorm

ITALY | The heatwave is also here a problem. It’s boiling hot in Italy, but up in the mountains it’s not that bad. We have around 25 degrees here. So we decided to do a multipitch in the shadow (orientation east) in the afternoon. Unfortunately a thunderstorm came pretty close to us. You climb a…

Multipitch in Tonezza del Cimone

ITALY| We are in Italy and besides eating our weight in pasta we also climb a bit. Today we did a 240m multipitch in Tonezza del Cimone (where Carlo’s dad grew up). It’s a small village in the piccole dolomiti which a huge forest. There is not a lot of construction, but so much wild…

Biking in the Bikepark Lavarone

ITALY | We went to the bikepark in Lavarone which is pretty close to the house we currently stay. It’s the old house of Carlo’s grandma in Tonezza del Cimone and it’s in the small Dolomites. It’s actually the area before the Dolomites (like the pre-alpes) and it’s absolutely beautiful. There is not a lot…
