Hey everybody!

Here I am again back at home for a while before bouncing again for a climbing trip...
My summer has been fun!
In July I spent ten days in Arco competing in the Bouldering World Champs but unluckily I got an unsuccessful result... I got in the semis but then completely messed up at them... next time!


During the days after the comp, despite the warm temps I climbed a few times in Trento and I got the first to send of a few new great routes: L'Insaziabile 8b, It's mine 8a+ and Taijerino 8a! All of them are 5stars lines!

One night I even took part at the Arco Rock Legends Ceremony where I was nominated for the Salewa Rock Awards with Adam Ondra,Chris Sharma,Sasha Digiulian and Enzo Oddo...
It has been a great ceremony on a stage in one of the main squares in Arco in front of a big crowd!

After Arco me and a big group of friends we moved to Céüse where we spent about three weeks...
We had very good times and met alot of new friends. Weather has been great for all our staying but a bit too warm for my project... I could try it only a couple of times per day and my skin was completely trashed! I will be back for sure next year with better conditions...
A bit tired of a too crowded Ceuse, hot temps, the big hike and other things we decided to drive to Frankenjura... big mistake! It was even warmer and almost impossible to climb due to the humidity and the annoying mosquitoes. So we drove down to Zillertal for the last few days...

Now I am chilling at home for a couple of weeks and getting ready for the fall season to start...
In a few days I will go to Finale Ligure to route set a nice bouldering competition called Finale for Nepal! The first prize is a journey in Nepal!!!
After that my plan is to climb in the Arco/Trento area for a month or so with maybe a couple of smaller trips in Zillertal and Frankenjura to finish some projects!
In october I might also take part at the San Vito Climbing Festival in Sicily!
And of course I will go to the China Petzl Roc Trip in the Getu Valley!...
It is going to be a busy fall and I'm pretty psyched for it!
