Saggradi (5 pitches, 120m,  5a, 6a, 6b, 7a, 6b)

Yesterday a nice afterwork friday afteroon in Leutasch with Thomas trying what are supposed to be hard routes for me and finding out that movements on 7b`s are there to be done ;-) (Lila Ende - 30m 7b).  Today, Saturday trying this rather old 5 pitches climb with Manuel. A lot of laying back style for this airy route in one of the most beautiful corners of Tirol....Wonderful the 2nd pitch crack and the roof of pitch 5.

rainy weather popping in from South

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…
