Hasliberg

SWITZERLAND | I remember when I came the first time to Hasliberg, I was instantly in love with this place. It is so remote and so beautiful in every season. This sunday we went for a short hike, because it was so freezing, we had to take a break and heat up with a hot…

Hiking to Suggiture

SWITZERLAND | The weather was beautiful in Valais when I took the train to go to Interlaken. On the other side of the tunnel it was full of fog and very cold, but we started our hike anyways. Maybe the fog will disappear if we are lucky. We were hinking about an hour and the…

Is Kalymnos for me?

GREECE | Kalymnos is the first place where I actually enjoyed everyday of climbing. This is the place where you have to force yourself to take a restday. It might be the soft grading, but all sectors are so spectacular with tons of high quality good routes. Is it for you? I wish I came…

Why is climbing in Kalymnos so awesome?

GREECE |The guy who rented us the apartment asked us ‘Is climbing here so good because the ocean is so close?’ we laughed and denied. Most of the times we have only eyes for the rock anyways. What makes Kalymnos special is the high quality of the rock and the awesome routes in every level….

Sailing in Kos

GREECE | We went for a week on a sailing boat around the Aegean islands. We started in Kos, headed to Kalymnos, Leros, Lipsi, Arki, Patmos and back. We had strong wind the whole week except during wednesday. Rain on a sailing boat is not very fun. But usually we had around 20 knots. On…

Climbing in Kalymnos

GREECE | Climbing in Kalymnos is basically the only acitivity on this island (except sailing). We will stay here for two weeks, but don’t worry you don’t have to read a hundret posts about climbing 😜 So this was our first day: We arrived in Myrties, rented a scooter and went directly to the next…

Multipitch Currucuclillo

SPAIN | We had to come back to this place. After climbing in Rodellar we went back to Riglos and decided to do two more multipitches on this fantastic conglomerate. The first one was on Colorado, a Mallos pequeño, a really easy one on grade 6a (the first 4 pictures). The view on the main…

Climbing in Rodellar

SPAIN | If you climb in grade 7 this is your paradise. If you climb weaker (like me) you still find nice and easy routes, but you have to change sectors more often. There are so many different sectors, in all orientations, vertical or overhanging, you can stay here forever. The high season is in…

Climbing the Mallos de Riglos

SPAIN | It’s good to listen to local recommendations. Two basques (thanks Antton & Igor) told us that this place is a must seen as a climber. So we went here and were mind blown. The rock looks like the Grand Canyon in color and is very bizarre from up close. It’s a mixture of…

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 Atxarte

SPAIN | Second climbing place we visited was Atxarte near the village of Mendiola. The place is impressive and very beautiful,but a lot of sectors are south oriented and it’s still too hot to climb. We climbed in primer espolon, long and nice routes of 35m. From 1 pm the sun hits the wall and…

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…
