Trophy in Warnemuende

Finally it is time for the next stop of the Kitesurftropy (KST). The KST is the official German championship for kitesurfing and the participants battle it out in four stops throughout the season. The second stop this year will be in Warnemuende on the upcoming weekend.

 

The good news is that there is also a big sailing event with life music and some good parties. The bad news is that the wind looks kind of odd. Maybe we get some Wind on Sunday – we will see. I am happy to see all the people again and encourage everybody to come around for a talk and hopefully some action!

Nordwandhalle summer party

Finally the summer arrived and therefore it is gonna be celebrated at the biggest climbing walls in norther Germany. Saturday we will kick off with a Bouldercontest “Elbmoves”, I will also participate to check how far I can reach my poor boulder skills. Later there will be a live band and a grill session – sound pretty mellow.

Sunday will be a big slack line event, with slack pros and different types of lines. As I am pretty much into slacking  at the moment, I am curious to test the different lines and get some tips from the good guys! Later this day there will be the Reel Rock Tour and we will have the chance to watch sick climbs and supreme action.

 

So this is how a weekend should be … I hope to see some of you guys over there.

Climbing trip to Norway

Just arrived home from Norway and still so stoked about the landscape and nature. If you stand in these big valleys you can still feel the power of the ice masses that were forging the scenery. It polished granite faces up to one kilometer hight into the hills, that were just waiting to get climbed by us.

 

And this is what out trip was about – having just a rope and some safety tools as our equipment and getting from bottom to top. We had unbelievable nice climbs, ranging from 40 to 700 meters. The style to climb this blank granite faces is to rely on pure friction to carefully pace up the wall. This was totally new for me as I mostly use power over technique to solve climbing problems, In Norway it was all about superior footwork and body balance.

 

We were living in a nice small lodge on a camping ground at a fast going river in northern Setesdal. A nice base to reach some of the best climbs in the valley. The weather was mostly stable and we had the chance to get 5 of 6 days on the walls – the weather is not always like this.

 

So back to Germany there is a bunch of things to do. Next weekend I will do a fun Bouldercup at the Nordwandhalle called “Elbmoves” and we will have a slack line event at the same place. All this is combined with the new Reel Rock Tour, which will show us the newest climbing movies. Sounds like a lot of fun! Hope to see you over there. I will also announce some big and nice news the next days so make sure to look in here every now and then. And in the end I am praying for wind, we really need some more this year!
