Local Climbing Area

While we have our roots here in central Germany it is the support of families and friends that enables us to go out into the world and explore new areas. As much as we like to go exploring, we also like to come back and enjoy climbing in our area.

 

Cold, Wet, Shivering and 24 Stella’s for £6

Many of my friends have decided that I am mad, as they cannot see the attraction of risking life and limb just to climb a mountain. So there I was sat in a bivi dug on a small ledge at 4500meters on Mount Maudit with powdersnow avalanches raining down on me, shivering and asking myself serious questions of my own sanity and why on earth I was there.

Montenegro 2008

Rrrring. Rrrring. Hi there?

As Ralf calls me I get curious very fast. Montenegro ? As a geographer I know where it is but this is already all of my knowledge. But wait, wasn't it that country with the german D-Mark as the official currency and all those young guys smuggling cigarettes? There is no way out, I have to contact Wikipedia.

Russia 2007 - Let's go east – time doesn't matter

We've chosen to go over land instead by plain. It was a new experience.

In July 2007 my girlfriend Chris and I were once again climbing in Romania . The new climbing guidebook has been just printed and so we tested it at the “real rocks”. We met many old and new friends there and climbed a lot of the brand-new sport climbing stuff. It was great!

On the outskirts of Mumbai (the former Bombay ) we saw more poor and homeless people than I ever could have imagined. Many of these people have no idea, how they are going to survive the next day.
