Summer in Switzerland

It’s been a while since my last post, almost a year. But summer the year also went to Bergell where we did all sorts of nice stuff. I climbed with my friend Mikkel. We did some fine routes in the Sciora group.  At the Sciora hut we climbed the route ‘Bügeleisen’ a fine TD-, 14 pitch ridge climb right next to the impressive Piz Cengalo. Just short of a month after our climb, 4 million cubic meters of rock broke away and tumbled down, destroying the small village of Bondo.

Summer in Italy

This years summer climbing trip went to Italy and Switzerland in the Bregaglia mountain massif. Together with a bunch of other climbers we enjoyed the fine granite. The weather was a bit unstable, but we did get some nice routes climbed. The highlight of the trip was ‘Il Mosaico’ at the Albigna Dam. I climbed the route on the 25th of July with Stefan Jackobsen. The route follows cracks and link to the NE ridge with spectacular finish up the famous Fiamma. The grade is TD, 450m, 6b
