Chris Muench Spends Some Time at Magic Wood

 
Chris Muench Spends Some Time at Magic Wood
 
September 16, 2010 -  Muench    
 

Good weather and the most limiting factor - my skin! Just back from a 5 days trip to Magic Wood! So good, bad weather only on the rest day. After a couple of "foot/hand-slippings" Sofa Surfer went down and I found out Son of a gun to be a really cool problem on crimps! The rest of the trip rather looked like trying everything a bit like Electro Boogie, one of my favourites, Body Count and Riverbed, but none o them was willing to let me get up and I did a couple of 7b+ and 7c problems, enjoying every move.

 

The most limiting factor, anyway, was skin - so I tried hard to get my fingers fit with Climb On and all sorts of creams... Next time - which hopefully is gonna be soon - I really want to get on Electro Boogie again, hopefully strong enough and with good beta then. The Team5.10 turned out to be my real favourite shoe on granite, with a good heal and toe - I'm really happy with that shoe! All in all it was a really good trip that made me psyched to touch rock again as soon as possible!!!
