Posted on 03. Apr, 2008 by in Switzerland


Our time here is Switzerland has come to an end. It has been a near perfect 5 weeks of granite bouldering. Magic Wood became snowy again and so I was left to try and clean up a few things close by before we head to Fontainebleau. Ryan and I both climbed The Riverbed, an amazing 8B in Magic Wood, Angie did Teamwork 8A and Petit pas Tapen 8A (in a day) and Daniel did Confessions 8B+ at Cresciano. Our last few days were incredible and we enjoyed perfect boulders in the day and pizza and wine in the evening. Ticino gets my vote for the best granite bouldering in the world. I can’t wait to return.

    Please provide pictures of all CH0SS you encounter. My jealousy is at an all time high, and I need to be reassured that there is choss in all parts of the world. Pictures of bullet stone are no longer allowed.

    Have fun in Font.
