Congrats! I might follow you soon. Still plan on going for the Germany management. I just fear the workload right now... Pretty busy lately due to climbing, dancing, ... And somehow I feel guilty planning to do it at work.

Yeah, I bought them used end of last season, they're however unused by me so far... Crazy

Won't be able to make it before the new year tho, I'm constantly travelling for work at the moment. Unsure

Would love to get startet tho!!! Only have Grivel G12's and no cash to buy anything right now, which means no steep water ice for me.

As soon as there's ice, I'm up for going....that is, as long as you're willing to put up with a relative ice noob.

In two weeks I'll be ice climbing with my ice rope gun, (i.e. little sister) !!! Smile

Well, not really... no climbing for at least a month for me. TOTALLY SUCKS. Anyway, I'll go to Fonti and see... who knows. It seems the casing around my bone is inflamed, limiting mobility and causing all the pain. On the upside, I'm on some pretty serious drugs...CrazyAngelicCool

Thanks UA, I'll check that out. I had Paolo post on the "fuorivia" (new planetmountain) forum too.

Morn' folks!

Heading for another weekend to party through... Company's x-mas party coming up tonight - a good opportunity to ruin any carreer chances I ever had (of which aren't too many anyway). Those parties tend to gett off limits completely - 500 people, average age around 25 and ready to kill whatever comes away in terms of alcoholic beverages... ouch!

Tomorrow I'll try to get the girl onto a wall. Last time wouldn't have worked out, but this time we'll take the little pricess too, so no dependency on baby sitters. Wish me luck!

Taz, the leg thing sucks. All the best and an extra virtu-metaphysical anti-inflammatory vibe from Berlin.

Have a nice one!

- Daniel

PS: For all the new mods out there: I finally took over Germany (a mess) . How about we develop a Wikipedia-style introduction, with traveling tips, emergency numbers, the main areas, climbing season a.s.o., which is similar in every European country?
Maybe we could even collect a bunch of 'all-over-Europe' info, such as links to the cheap airlines etc. to post it as an introduction?

tisar, i don't like those generalizations, i'd keep it personal on country level, but then having a general europe intro page does sound interesting, with maybe a top-ten destination list or smth like that...Otherwise welcome!

Haven't totally worked out the thing either. Just started to sort out the ugliest bs and made some minor merges of double entries.
Maybe if I got more time at hand (not before x-mas that is) I will start to complete entries with long/lat, get any ind of order into the Frankenjure etc. Whole bunch of things to do and guide books to read...
I'd really like to write some introduction/summary for the German front page. But that'll take even more time I fear...

Moritz's gotta join the unholy x-mas tradition of repeated booze-up in our family's hometown. Sorry. Now, actually not too sorry, since I really wanna see him and the middle one. Nice package that is Cool

When useing google earth, you'll find the alt/lon displayed. Otherwise you'd rely on guide books which often provide gps data.

OOhh Taz..

I would really like to join you guys but Daniel is rightUnsure. I'm going fill my stomach with good old german beer and spend the week with the family (witch isn't that bad at all... aahhh... family and beerCool).

But I wish you both a nice Christmas in Fonti and hope you will enjoy it, even with your leg.

For the shoes: I will not make it to Brussels in the next few months (I'm broke and my practical at Outwardbound is starting in mars). So you have to keep them for a while or I can send my flat mate, who is going to stay in Brussels for New Year’s Eve, to get them.

Hi folks!

Anybody out there?

Had a perfect weekend. Been climbing with the new girl and the littl'un on Saturday. Shaweeet! Both hooked Cool The kid's unbelievable. She rocketed up that UIAA 5 in the gym without a hard breath. Up to the top and doesn't even care how much slack's in the system (no worries, it wasn't too much).
Mother did a good job too. Looks promising, since she kinda seemed proud of the soreness yesterday. Don't we all know that too well Tongue Now I gotta teach her belaying asap...

Hope you aren't too fed up with x-mas preparations?

Have a nice one!

- Daniel

Alas, Moritz, we are ice climbing in Italy over the New Year. Don't worry, your shoes are safe and sound until the next time we see you... at least they guarantee you'll have to visit before you go back for good!

Tisar, pictures? Having trouble picturing you as a father-figure... Tongue

Rest of you? Big Xmas or new year plans?

Where are you going? We went yesterday to Cogne and climb a fall, but most of the ice in the area has not formed yet Mad

Then on Saturday our second winterclimb attempt got spolied with stupid weatherforecast. Last week to much snow and this time wind like hell.

PS. I have a lot of photos and will try to put them up, but not here on RC.com since they still not allow embedded pictures Pirate

Father-figure? Goodness! A little early to think about, isn't it? Though of course I worked in a kindergarden for about 1 1/2 years and all in all seven year olds tend to be relatively easy to handle... Wink

brux - check your pms for lodging info.

Xmas plans - family, working on recovering my foot 100%.

NY - going to ukraine, trying ski touring there, maybe in Austria on the way back. Afterwards in January/february - free w-ends for ice and skis as long as my foot starts working correctly...so who wants to meet where for ice/ski touring in jan/feb?

Ciao Christian! which one did you climb exactly? I'm pretty interested in ice falls conditions over there, too.
