Last Week of Semester Holidays in Frankenjura - Christian Muench

Last Week of Semester Holidays in Frankenjura - Christian Muench
October 16, 2013 -  Muench

The last week of semester holidays turned out to be not too bad actually. The weather report for the second half of the second week in October was so bad that - although we only had one rest day after the last trip to “Frankenjura” - we made our way back there on Monday, 7 October 2013, again.The following three days of climbing there where full of sun and good weather then. As we came back to “Bärenschlucht” because Martin wanted to try “Poseidon” (8a+) again, and because I definitely didn’t want to try “Desaster” (8b+) in the sun,...

Being quite tired from all the heat, at least I could try the moves of "Intercooler" (8c+) an do some really nice climbs round 7a/7a+. The next day was a bit...

About two weeks ago, I had a really nice weekend in Frankenjura together with some good friends.Even if there was no hard climbing, I had fun onsighting and flashing a couple of things. Amongst others, I flashed Nullkommanix (8a) and did an awesome 7c+ arete (see pictures).In the evening, we went to a public viewing spot in Nürnberg to whatch Germany vs Greece. So much fun we had there!!!The next day was for bouldering on hard things. So I had a look into Shangri-La (9a) - really good but so much endurance that you need there :)Nevertheless I'm keen...
