Switzerlan​d - Graübunden - Zervreilah​orn - Medea (9 pitches, 300m - 6b+)

Half of a Wet Dream

Half: because we had to bail out after 3 pitches due to a quite wet 6bish slabby movement
Wet: well it was not dry ;-)
Dream: the climb is amazing....great the third 6b pitch a pure finger crack to be climbed in dulfer all the 30m up... in warm jacket and slighlty wet it was not a piece of cake but the movement are great...
the upper part gets easier and must be worst getting back into this route once the summer is kinda back in the alps
thanks Adnrea for the nice day
check the pics out:
and Andrea climbing in warm Dawn Jacket end of July

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…
