Euro13: Magic Wood, Switzerland - Sebastien Lazure

Euro13: Magic Wood, Switzerland - Sebastien Lazure
November 26, 2013 - 

After Munich, Innsbruck and some tourist attractions, we were crossing the Swiss borders in our awesome BMW rental!Switzerland is more than lots of chocolate; it’s also lots of rock, mountains and amazing scenery. Our destination was the infamous Magic Wood, one of many climbing areas this country has to offer. This place reminds me a lot of Squamish. The rock is pretty much the same with a bit more holds and the surrounding is very similar. We had only 8 days of climbing in total. We did 2 days on with a day off twice and finished with a...

Wednesday July 24th - Preparations are Being MadeI awoke to the sun beating down on my face through the window. There was silence throughout the house. No sounds of Alison making coffee and no sounds of Felix narrating his life. It was just Madeline and I. As sad as it was to have them both gone, It was nice to have a quite house. Maddy soon woke up after me and we went to make breakfast. With the smell of bacon cooking in the air, I sat at the kitchen table eating toast with my eyes deep in the...

Thursday July 18th - Hard work pays off We awoke to yet another gorgeous day here. The wind was blowing, the birds were chirping, and the guidebook is sitting out on the table. Time was starting to run out for our friends Alison and Felix. In less than a week they would be leaving and headed back to the states. We had to start picking wisely the places to which we would be going for these next few days. We wanted to make sure everyone got a chance to do what they had in mind for the remainder of...

Sunday July 14th - Back to Puig de Garrafa.Week three. We were starting to get accustomed to this lifestyle. It was all I’ve ever wanted. Living in a small home with good friends, eating amazing food, and spending our days climbing. I could do this for a while. Two weeks were behind us though and as much as we hated the idea of it, time was moving fast. We were basically halfway through our trip already. It was time to get moving.Over our typical bountiful breakfast of toast and yogurt, we talked about where we’d go for the day....

Thursday July 11th - Tufas, mas tufas!Today marked the day on which we’d be traveling to our most anticipated crag of Mallorca. Alaro. This crag looked like nothing I’ve ever seen before. The walls, looked as if they have been melting slowly for thousands of years. Maybe they have, I’m no geologist. I just climb the rocks. It seemed, other worldly. I’d read in the guide book and heard in movies, that this crag boasted some of the best tufa lines in the world. Everything was world class. Nestled in the mountains backing the town of Alaro, we began...

Our Journey to Mallorca was less than stellar... Sunday 1:00pm My girlfriend (Maddy) and I checked in for our first flight out of Detroit Metro airport. Check in was ok, as was security except my wonderful girl friend (who I love so much) lost my water bottle…oh well. After we got through security we had plenty of time before our flight. Our flight to Chicago was delayed in order to fix the mechanism that supplies oxygen to the cockpit. I guess that’s important. We also had to gate check our bags because the plane was...
