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…

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…

Climbing in Hatunmachay

PERU | Today we went rock climbing after one month of mountaineering only. Not gonna lie, it was pretty hard to restart, to use those arm muscles and trust in your legs again. But the place is absolutely beautiful! Such a powerful and impressive rock formation. Where: Huaraz, 1,5h to Hatunmachay, various climbing sectors from…

Climbing Sector Regina del Lago

ITALY | The day started with heavy rain, so we couldn’t go biking. Instead we drank cappuchinos and ate croissants filled with cream. For the afternoon we decided to drive down to Arco to see if it rained there aswell, maybe we were lucky and the rock is already dry. So we went to the…

Climbing in Arco

ITALY | We went to Italy again, because we are very impatient when it comes to weather conditions. So we packed the bus and drive down to Italy where we hope to find less rain. Our goal was the climbing mekka Arco near the lake Garda. When we arrived of course it was pouring rain…

Multipitch in Bramois

SWITZERLAND | Today we went to Bramois for a multipitch. Actually we wanted to do it already yesterday, but it started to rain and we had to stop. Today the weather was gorgeous (well until 2 pm. because now it’s raining again). We did the “Voie des dièdres” which is 4+,5c, 4, 4+, Traverse, 4+,…

Climbing in Wissenflue

SWITZERLAND | The weather is gorgeous in Switzerland and summer is finally here! Summer in Europe is the best time of the year and I love it!! Days are long, the sun is out and everything is so green and lush! Today we went to Reutigen near Spiez for climbing. I have never been there…

Climbing in Orco Feglino

ITALY | Today we went climbing in the sector ‘Cordon Blue’ in Orco Feglino. It’s a pretty big sector with a wide range of difficulties and pretty short routes. I had already troubles with the easiest, because the sector is frequently visited and the routes are slippery 😅 Where: Orco Feglino, Italy, from the church…

Dentelles de Montmirail

FRANCE | We spent the last three days in Vacqueyras for climbing the famous Dentelles de Montmirail. I had no idea that this place is so awesome! The mountain chain is standing in the middle of all the vineyards and you can climb in so many sectors. I have never seen so many climbers in…

Climbing in Bavella

FRANCE | We reached Corsica the french sister of Sardegna. From the ferry we drove straight up to Bavella. A paradise for climber and biker. The climbing sectors are everywhere and we plan to do some interesting multipitches during the next days. But for the first day we went to the climbing sector next to…

Climbing in Rocca Doria

ITALY | We are now further up north in a very unusual climbing area. The rock is totally different than what we have seen so far. It’s so good that we decided to stay two full days and enjoy the quality if the rock. Where: Rocca Doria, over 90 routes What: amazing rock, nice view…

Multipitch Pedra Longa – Marinaio di foresta

ITALY | Apparently we really like multipitches 😊 Today we did the famous multipitch of Pedra Longa done by Maurizio Oviglia in 2013. It is a nice traverse to the top of Pedra Longa with a splendid view to the punta Giraldili. The rock is aggressive and you need a lot of force. It’s definitely…

Multipitch in Cala Goloritzè

ITALY | Today early in the morning we went to the monolith Aguglia in Cala Goloritze. It’s the most famous in this area and we hesitated to do it, because apparently it’s super used and slippery. Plus the easiest route is 6b which is not really my level. But nevertheless we went and did the…

Trekking Selvaggio blu

ITALY | We went on a trekking with Tiziana and Marco (who is a alpine guide bigalpineguide) and did one day of the four day trekking Selvaggio blu. It’s one of the most impressive trekkings on Sardegna and absolutely spectacular. You need a guide, harness and a rope for the multiple rappels. The trail follows…

Multipitch in Surtana

ITALY | In Sardegna the choice of multipitches is endless. Especially here near Dorgali, which is near the Canyon Gorrupo. There are multipitches for every level and it’s such a remote and wild area. I love this place. We did the ‘Sound of Silence’ which has 5 pitches (5b,5c,5c,5b,5a) so easy climbing. But it’s so…

Multipitch in Poltrona

ITALY | We arrived in our beloved Sardegna. This island has everything! It’s a paradise for climbers and the landscapes are amazing! Our first day we spent in Poltrona near Cala Gonone, where we did a few pitches and a multipitch in the evening. The multipitch is called India and has 4 pitches and a…

Climbing in El Rio

SPAIN | We are back in Tenerife for climbing. After a week of intense biking I’m very happy about that. My legs are still so sore! So today we went to El Rio for climbing, you can still see the old dam which is not in use anymore. The whole scenery is a bit morbid…

Climbing in Santa Ursula

SPAIN | Climbing is pretty popular here in Tenerife. We went up north which is totaöly different than the very crowded south. It’s wilder and a huge part of it is national park. I didn’t expect much from this climbing spot because it’s so close to a village. This place is absolutely gorgeous! The most…

Climbing in the Teide National Park

SPAIN | We are currently in Spain, more precisely Tenerife. It is the island of eternal spring, but the last two days it was very windy and pretty chilly. But we were prepared (climbing spots are always freezing). We discovered yesterday Arico the largest climbing spot on the island with a lot of different sectors….
