Nice Friday Afternoon with Birgit Today.

Verdonesque rock....;-)

Christoph Prager - Walter Unglarik 23.4.1988 (5 pitches 130m - 6c)

6c (+?) (nice but hard to start with very technical)
6c    (hard single the rest  is a wondefull 6b on great rock)
6b    (OS... an amazing pitch)
6b+  (OS nice 30m  but rock less than perfect )
then it starts the next route ;-)

Abraxas (6c 6c 7a+ 6b)

exposed, airy, vertical and on what seems to me the best part of the all Martinswand....

Training - Self made trainingboard

Self made Wood carved Training Board

It is a bit that i am thinking about a feasible way to make a wood training board without spending too much. 
Well, this is the idea i came up with:
4 wood boards 28mm x 300mm x 1200mm (price ca. 5 Eur each, full wood)1m metal threaded rod (8mm) to be cutted in 4 pieces of 25cm each8 bolts M88 washer M8Wood specific gluesdrill2 or 4 crimping tools  to fix the panels while gluing them together (overnight)sandpaper grid 400 and 10010mm drill tip to make the fixing holes 25 mm drill tip to make  the starting holes at the edges of the  slotswood-saw
The A3 sized plan can be downloaded here as PDF (Click).
It is basically an assembly of woodboards which are easy to work with, without specific material. the boards are first carved and then glued together.
Below some pictures of the process.

Before to glue the panels need to be treated with a sort of protective agent to look alike the metolius woodboard... i choose the Swedish oil to paint the boards…

Austria - Tirol - Habicht (3277m)

In this dry year, a very nice tour in great snow for what concern the upper part of the tour.

Habicht (3277m) - 25km, 2000hm ca

careful - ski carrying up to ca 2200m.
