A little bit of sportclimbing for a little suisse girl

 

Céuse is still my favorite sportclimbing spot. There is such a lot to do and I love the mystic atmosphere there!

Since I've been the first time in Céüse, it was always my dream to climb Black Beans. This 70 meter long route begins in the colonettes 7c+ and to climb till the top it was like a long journey.

One week ago I checked it out but then it begins to rain and when I comed back three days ago, the bottom was like a watherfall. So I had to search another project and I put the quickdraws in le chirurgien du crepuscule. A really hard Céüse-style 8b. Hard pockets moves, vertical and flat climbing and well, just hard!

On the fifth attempt I climbed this route and the day after, Black Beans was more or less dry and so I climbed this route as well to finish a perfect Céüse week. I will come back soon!;-)
