murcia region sounds good to me1 maybe we should check into that. There is an airport, so maybe we are lucky.
Is VDM still climbable in october? Last year in oktober we rained away in arco, snow just 10 km north of us!

claanques i know, but to much walking and not enough for the level of gf compared to mine. (biiiig diff!)

so i talk to her about spain and mallorca, although i still feel tarn pulling a me!

The flights are booked!

That means, after the sudden death of my Fontainebleau plans, I'll be in Milano/Bergamo on 5th early in the morning. Hopefully be back at the airport on 15th. That's all. No more plans so far. Hope to meet some people. Oh, and climb of course :D

See you?

Paolo just booked our flights - VDM from October 13-15. We can give you a lift back to the airport, most likely. :wink:

Now that's great news :D

*dances round the table and gets the colleague's looks*

Maybe we can do it the other way 'round this time - I'm considering getting a car on my own, so maybe I could pick you up then. Still not sure about though. Any suggestions?

Yeah, that would be even better! Heiko may be able to pick us up too, depending if he's going or not. Anyway, for car rental send an email to Paolo... he knows all the cheap ones. Or, ask heiko.

Are you on skype? Free calls! We can video conference...

Not yet. Gotta get me a headset (and a cam), but why not :D Maybe Wednesday I'll hit the next Saturn market and get me one. Must be fun anyway!

Will contact Paolo on that. Thought a cheap offer by Sixt, but maybe he's even better.

Tisar, we could maybe do something. My boss will not be around so making a longer weekend could not be impossible?

That would be absolutely awesome! I still don't know where to head when I'm in Bergamo by now. Heiko is not sure if he'll have time and I already thought about heading for Arco first - since chances to find someone to climb with would be probably higher in a famous sports climbing area.

Would be a gas to climb some nice and easy multi-pitchers with you! Just keep in mind I'm totally not used to approaches (despite by taxi) and never did anything higher than three pitches. It'll take me some time to acclimate...
Think about a 60 year old chain smoker with a fear of hight and we'll be fine. I may turn out as a 40 year old occasional but that's not granted :lol:

Tisar no problem there are a lot of multipitch places around with very short approach. Since it is in October the weather forecast can be more important. I know several places for multipitch climbs in the range of 5-10 pitches. I can make some propsals for you and send it to by PM later this week.

That would be heaven! I already ordered a guide book for the area, but it's not here by now. It's hard to look forward to something you never have seen anything but pictures of (now, actually not too hard, as those pictures where stunning...).

Thanks!

Yes he will. We made that up yesterday, so I can pick up Sarah in Milano.

Oh my god, this is such an awesome vacation, I could cry every Minute of sheer happiness... or maybe it's just the bones that hurt so much. They tend to remind me constantly of every single of the 700m meters I climbed in the last three days.

See you all tonight!

Yeah man, the weekend rocked. I've never done so little climbing but at the same time had soooo much fun in one weekend.

Except for you drunk m&/()thaf/()ckerz shouting and singing "nothing else matters" all of saturday night while I was trying to digest about 5 kilos of meat from dinner! :lol:

Anyway you all know where to find me and all the climbing places that are around. A next meeting should be around Torino and some ice-climbing instead :D Even no Taz has some dangerous shoes :shock:

Awesome weekend!

I still can't believe that the VDM rock season is over. Of course, there are lots of great ice climbs there in the winter....any takers? Imagine climbing the Cascata del Ferro!

Let's not camp though. :wink:
