Once again our plans to go bouldering in Val di Mello fade away. The weather forecasts are not so bad, but snow has covered the blocks, as we see from the webcam. and we decide to drive forward Switzerland. We wake up on Sat morning with a stunning blue sky over us... we decide to have a look at the Nivo Alta sector, where we warm up and where we understand that the conditions are not the best... all is wet and humid, it must have rained during the last week... Anyway we warm up and then we move to Alphane Moon, a very nice line, that I send in few trials. I also try the sit start, but is less interesting. At the end of the day, when it is almost dark, I have a funny session trying and sending The Pocket Problem. The day after, we go to Dr Med Dent, where we warm up with some easiest lines, and then I successfully try the line that gives the name to the sector. We then move to Nivo Bassa, where I try some hardest line, and where I finish the very short day with a very hard 7a near the parking.

Too short these days!
