Searching new crags in Kalymnos
Hi everybody! I’m sorry for the lack of news in the past months, but I was quite busy and I didn’t find the time to update.
I spent the first two weeks of February improving my ice climbing skills: after many years I finally managed to realize a dream of youth, standing under a ice fall with two axes! I had a lot of fun and it was nice to slowly get a good feeling wit the ice… I’m really looking forward to the next season!
After few days in Aix, I flew to Kalymnos for a 10 days exploration trip on the island. It was quite strange to travel without meeting any climbers, but when I arrived I understood the reason as the weather was humid, cold and windy…
The trip started with a bad surprise and the very first day I got a bad stomach flu, which forced me to stay in the bed. After this bad start, I spent the following days climbing a little bit on the (wet) classics, exploring the island looking for new crags, and training in the local gym. Unluckily after few days the bad weather arrived, everybody got sick and it was impossible to climb outside, so we decided to change our tickets to flight home earlier.
Despite the short time, I had the opportunity to explore quite a lot and I found some great stuffs to bolt during the next trip: the potential on the island is just impressive!
I really want to thank all the kind people of the island, who helped me and who made my trip great: I can’t wait to come back.
Now I’m back in Bolzano, shaping a lot of new holds, setting in the gym and trying some hard stuffs around…..more to come soon!
