Scottish? It might depend on the amount of good whiskey you are willing to bring for the next gathering, but yes, you there's a chance you qualify. And since you are able to not only use punctuation and smileys, but also know how to (wow, special effects) change the color of your name in the post - feel free to post up :D

Welcome!

UA: Nice photos and yes I was sneeking around yesterday to check the weatherforecast. It really sucks for rock climbing at the moment but I think it could improve the mixed climbs for September time :D

Well Saturday afternoon we went to Dalmazzi walking up in perfect temperatures but raining a little. Sunday planned a two route climb with an escape in the middle due to the weather forecast. We did the first one:

When we toped out the weather was getting a little worse but the wall is very nice :D

http://spinphys.org/sum02.jpg

But when we approached the start it started snowing a little and we decided not to start which was a good choice since one hour later the raing was coming down.

Monday I went to Giacoletti hut and we spent three days there climbing in perfect conditions. We got a visit of a friend and his partner in crime, a rival to Boogers partner I think :wink:

Even we have the base for making some fresh Genepy...

Saluti Christian, still planning for where to go this weekend... I need an update of the weather forecast.

If only you asked three mounths ago... when my parents still owned the hotel with three bars... :D
Actually most of the stuff considered quite good elsewhere is pretty averige here, as far as price go's. If it gets me new friends I'm sure i could find some Liebramafacwhatchamicallit (the good stuff always has the confusing names! :lol: )
So, now the only question is... when's the "Eurofreaks [place british area name here] Takeover"? :P

So, is it true that in mainland europe people are actually legally allowed to eat other people?

Ciao all of you!

The weather sucks! We went away this morning very early to do a climb with a two hours approach. They said the weather would be stable in the morning but when we arrived at the start of the climb we had a small snow storm at 2800 m :cry: Well another one and half walk back :lol: We had a good time and finished with a nice pasta asciutta instead.

Though I had a good time looking at the old stuff of my friends father in their mountainplace and took some photos. When I came home I took the modern versions :wink:

OLD - Beautiful climbing stuff (look at the ice screws):

http://spinphys.org/oldstuff.jpg

NEW - To many colors and hightech somehow:

http://spinphys.org/newstuff.jpg

OLD - Primus - Made in Sweden :wink: :

http://spinphys.org/oldprimus.jpg

New - Primus - Made in Sweden :

http://spinphys.org/newprimus.jpg

Finally first ascent picture done some years ago I think? You spot the climber? I wonder what stuff they really used? They have a lot more...

Saluti Christian - Still looking for better weather around!

ok, here we go:

weather reports looking good for next we! it's getting hot again. that means long evenings round the fire in new, fancy tshirts!

I counted 7 freaks coming (me included) which means I'll order 14 pigs, righht?

drawback nr. one: we're not alone. there is a possibility of non-climbers families littering the BBQ-area. I already negotiated with the schaefers (family that owns the place) and we can arrange on another spot if the more popular spot is too crowded.
but thats not the last word and it might happen we're alone. I'll talk to them today.

as for other supplies (salads, bread, sauce) you might bring on your own.

plus: I put up another new, rad, hellish steep route for you to savour!
made my flight license yesterday with a soft 10m drop...

:shock: Songs we sing, trees we hug, filthy hippies we are... Alas, Country Roads... the song most often sung by drunken people. :D (I bet you didn't know that every drunken German knows at least the first verse of this masterpiece of campfire cheesyness).
I sincerely hope you got a decent songbook (there best be some copies of it for the singalong) or I'll go... METAL!!!!

Bring your acoustic, Daniel! Oh... a songbook might be a good idea too since Paolo's songbook only has Italian stuff... (and country roads) 8^)

You would have talked me into it, but I fear I'll have a struggle to minimize the baggage anyway. And songbooks... I once found out that playing guitar and snuggling with the girls at the camp fire does not go hand in hand: The guitarist is always the last to sit at the fire when every beauty already vanished into the surrounding bushes or does those faint 'quiek' sounds in the next tent.
I soon decided to go for the girls - thus I didn't develop a library of songbooks. In fact I doubt I have any... sorry :roll:

Sorry, ambler, but isn't Kullen supposed to be in Sweden?
Yes, but I've heard that "the best climbing in Denmark is in Sweden."
:lol: :lol: :lol: Okay, that's an argument. Might also be a cause why danish climbers are seldomly seen around here... just a thought though :lol:
Danish climbers do seem to keep a low profile 'round here, but surely some exist. If the weather's decent September 9 or 10, I'd love a chance to get out of the city.

Fine weather in the Gunks last week:

gang, somethings come up. at least the buddy wont be able to come so im looking for a reasonable flight to bruxeles.

the thing is we are designing a new platform for national bouldering comps and the sponsors (well, suppliers; theyre pretty much the same) have changed some specs (we had it pretty much wrapped up) and the deadline is next week. im the 3d modelling/design guy on the project so i guess ill have to kick it into gear to finish in time to make it to the gathering (ill see if i can use some cheap trick like scaling and such to make the work go a bit faster; i would really hate to do it all from scratch). but im pretty optimistic that i can do it in two days and not burn out my eyes completely.

so pray to the computer/3d desing gods for me. i would really hate to miss this one.

Yeah, until they get tired of watching your fingers strumming the strings instead of their erogenous zones... And dare to stop - you won't break the romantic of the moment, will you?

Now that's kinda philosophical question... better to be discussed with a good wiskey or a barrel of beer. :D

Just to let you know, I was just joking, and seeing how you would respond, and having noticed that there was no response for a few days, i noticed the chance of a funny response slim and minor insut high. so don't worry, I'm not actually this ignorant.

I read it but actually wasn't sure what you were talking about. Did you refer to the German cannibal incident? If so, he was pretty much busted - even the legal basis for the punishment was rather weak.

(Anyway no insult taken here... :D )

I just failed at it a bit i guess.

Aside from that, whats shakin? and who is everyone here? (quick intro thread or somin?)

So where exactly are we meeting up for this thing? At a campground, a climbing area? And when are most people planning on arriving?

I've looked at the directions and map on the Ettringen website, even translated it's not alot of help. Stone_d, I will be coming from the south on A48 [E44] and getting off on exit 6 and onto B262. Looks like I go through the town of Mayen and head north on L82 which will take me to Ettringen. That's as far as my research takes me. Can you give me some directions after that?

Steve, when you come from mayen towards Ettringen, just before you reach Ettringen (500 meters) you get a BIG parkingspace on your left. that's probably the best meetingplace. You will see the cranes all around you. If you get on top of the hill you are driving uptowards Ettringen, you are to far (you will see a little petrolstation) Then you have driven to fast! :D

I just wanted to know if some peeps are there on fridaymorning. Before i drive south to get my bike and climb in the frankenjura, there is time for me to climb in Ettringen. someone there to say hello to?
