Austria - Tirol - Tschi Tschi (6 pitches, 180m, 7a)

 With Birgit Today we climbed this line that was in my mind since few years but always too weak too try it....

Tschi Tschi (6 pitches, 180m, 7a obl - F. Huber, T. Schöpf 1992) 

We climbed the first pitches of Ostriss 6a (much nicer than the original grassy 6c of Tschi Tschi in my view) and then went for the great verticality of tschi tschi.

all in all we climbed

6a  --> easy warm up on a known route (Birgit)
6b+ --> short and OS..... i think it is a 6b here rather than a 6b+
7a --> all the movements are there, some falls, some rests but the sequence is there
6b --> Birgit good job...
6b --> athletic OS
7a --> we actually rappelled down here with 2 60 rappels

nice project..will be back for the red point. nice nice nice rock

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…
