SO....................

THE IMPORTANT QUESTION IS..............

WHEN AND WHERE IS OUR NEXT EUROFREAK GATHERING??

I am free any weekend in August. Bellaitalia (Sarah), it seems, will be in the BXL area one of those weekends, but I'm not sure which one.

When are you all free? What area would be convenient to meet? I propose either:
Fontainbleau,
Pfalz (again... it was a great atmosphere there!),
Cologne/Kln (since we have some new climbing buddies there who can show us around),
Strasburg (will I ever spell it right?),
Belgium, or
somewhere in England (since tickets are always cheap with Ryanair... but some of us have visa issues there so I dunno).

word.

that would be nice, what about somewhere near munich/Innsbruck - i believe there is also good climbing there...? Or maybe Switzerland - Interlaken area, can stay at Grindenwald - Alpine, bouldering and crags, everything there? I'm more or less free all w-ends as well, although probably not for aug 15th as it's 4 days and i might dare another crazy outing of mine then...

Since we have some new people and some old ideas there... how about the Czech sandstone or one of the areas Tom mentioned?

I'd be in for almost anything but we must keep in mind that flights are just cheap if booked in time. I checked flights for 'bleau early August and they were over 200 - too much for my party-weightend finances...

I'd LOVE the area north of Innsbruck of course, it's not so far to drive for me and the Wetterstein alpine sport routes are well-known for their beauty. Plus, it's not so hot up there. Pfalz, Strasbourg etc. are all still in full summer, i.e. 35 degrees and climbing impossible.

Ettringen looks cool to me.

I prefer somewhere central-ish Europe, that most of us can drive or where tickets are cheap. Unfortunately, Czech Rep isn't the cheapest place to get to :cry: ... maybe if we plan ahead for that trip in say October?

What are tickets like from Czech to Brussels? If you folks could get here, I can drive us all to any of the other central places.

sure you can climb on gear! as well as bolted climbs.
If you come in time you might even get some chance for a FA in a new sector!
or bring some extra juice for some projects of mine you wanna try...

It's not that I wouldn't like to see some other places I havn't been to, but I'd be also glad to show you some good stuff of my own.

so come to ettringen!
BBQ facilities and camping are only a stones throw from the climbing. actually less than 3 minutes from the nearest sector.

ill see what i can do. but not having a car of my own poses a tiny problem. well, some buddies do have cars of their own and ill see if i can convice one to give me a lift, er, come along :wink:

if that doesnt work out, ill try to find some other form of transport (read train). thats why font would be preferable to me. getting to paris with ryanair&co shouldnt be a problem.

Get a Ryanair flight into Bruxelles Charleroix and Taz&Paolo will be able to give you a lift for sure.
(Right?)

Try virgin-express.com and flysn.com too.

Seems I could make it (via Brussels) with a day off on 4th to 6th without blowing up the months budget. Buuuuuut... I'll have to know pretty soon!

I hate being spontaneous :D

that would be an option. i can get to bruxelles from venice or to frankfurt from trieste. but the problem is that it costs friggn 100euros if i go on 4th august (and i can only go from venice, trieste-frankfurt is full). so it would be a bit better if we chose a latter date. but then the weather might sour.

anyway, ill see hows with personal transport. need to call some buddies and find a 13w3female to 15hdmale monitor cable adapter so i can continue surfing.

I could get pretty cheap flights to Brussels on 19th early and back on Monday (sub 100 that is), so that weekend would be great too... and maybe easier to plan for Rasto?!?

Either of those weekends is fine for Paolo and I, and we can obviously put you up if you need to come in a day early or leave a day late. Also can drive up to 6 people if necessary.

I vote the weekend of the 19-20 so that everybody has time to plan, get tickets, etc.

sarah, you can come from the 5-6 anyway- I'm sure we can find some trouble to get into! :wink:

Nothing particular. As every 'good' German I kinda like them - baked, roasted, mashed, you name it... Just not sticking out of a wall I wanted to climb on! :wink:

so what is there to climb in ettringen again? is it all one pitch stuff?

...i still have grand cap' calling my name, maybe the aug 5th w-end, so you have to motivate me really strong (knowing that alcohol is not the strongest motivator for me...) to come there on that date....

sure you don't want to go to innsbruck or say gastlossen?

I made this thread a poll. Would be nice if you vote for one of the options so we have clarity (simply go to the top of the page).

I voted for August 19, it's further in the future and thus makes me less nervous about having a fixed appointment ;)

As for location, it appears that Ettringen is the word. I'm happy with that.

Well, neither alcohol nor climbing hard are the real motivators for these trips (okay, maybe I'm lying about the alcohol).

How about: "For the great company of fellow climbers and a chance to meet new friends!" ?

as soon as the date and the destination is fixed, I should talk to the owners of the BBQ facility. they frequently have other guests on their lawn and we wouldn't like to be with our grandparents singing folk songs, wouldn't we?!

This is in fact an offical gathering, like a fair or such. He not only should send you, but also equip you with the latest and greatest toys of this years production to be tested by the official representatives of the European Freak Community.

Ok, now that we have sort of arranged for food, lodging, transportation, and gear, the next VIQ I have to ask is:

WHO'S BRINGING THE CHICKS.

(If I was bringing them, I obviously wouldn't ask).

Preferrably clueless ones, so Tisar and I can lie to them about our skills.

I remember times when Skaters were adored by girls too scared to skate. This has obviously not yet found its way into climbing. At least not where I live. Ok, it's hard to sit on a chosspile for 8hrs and adore someone 10 pitches above. But hey! Where's the motivation!

normally I think the girls adore those 6a-chuffers with radical bald head and multipocketed outdoor pants.
I've never found one (at least here) that I can persuade with my climbing skills.

Off topic here (sorry) but are any of you Eurofreaks Danish? I'll be travelling through Copenhagen (by way of Greenland) around Sept 9/10, and would love to link up with an expedition to Kullen.

IMPORTANT!!!!

Guys, I had a fabulous idea this morning. Actually, I had it yesterday and got it all set today. So, granite_grrl, as we all know, had a serious fall last week and is recovering. Wouldn't it be totally cool for her to get little goodies and notes from Europe!!?? If you were in the hospital kicking ass on recovery wouldn't that inspire you?

So -

1. Go out and buy a little postcard or souvenir (snow-dome of Paris, Mannekin Pis bottle-opener, piece of the Berlin wall... whatever!) from your part of Europe.

2. Send me a pm and I'll send you Brent's address.

3. Post it off to granite_grrl with all of our Euro-love and wishes for speedy recovery and future ass-kicking!!

Then, when she's all better, she can come over here for a visit and teach us how to climb! :D

-the booginator

ps- Though I'm sure that the hospital food sux, those of you near Amsterdam should perhaps not send your most 'famous' souveniers.

Do you really wanna get there on 18th? That pretty much blows my plans... I could be in Brussels on Sat very early (8.30 am), but Friday is hard (had to take a day off and would be in Brussels on Friday morning). Flight back goes Monday around 3 pm so I'd have to stay at yours Sun night, if that's okay with you.

Daniel, we can organize around the flights as people start buying tickets. No worries, just let us know. Just get here!

As for staying on Sunday... Scapi has approved your visit, but she requests that you try NOT to shed on the furniture this time. :D

Count another American into the mix. I have looked at this area briefly online, and now I have a valid excuse to go. Its not too far from me. Maybe I can convince someone at work to join in as well...if you don't mind me bringing a total newbie.
Tisar: sorry man, I have no hot chicks to bring in for ya man.

the weekend of the 19th looks good to me, and if anyone thinks they can get a cheaper ticket going into the Hahn airport, I can pick up from there (its a 45 min drive or so)

Count me in of course! I'll have to check my schedule about the dates, oh wait, I'm unemployed! Any applications I fill out will have the "when can you start" date after the gathering.

Cracks! Did I hear something about cracks at this place??! Stone_D_Cologne keep those bolting weenies away those beautiful voids of nature.

ok ppl, heres the deal.

i ahve found two flights with ryanair from venice (i can esily get there by train) to brussles and two back. i can be in brussles on 17th either at 14h or 23h and returns are at 10h and 19:30h on monday (the latter preferable because its CHEAP). prices are acceptable. but the question is... do you have a reasonble (read not too expensive) youth hostel in bussles and hows public transport from airport to hostel?

i would really like to know the answers pretty soon so i can book the flights.

and, yes, that means that im most likely coming.

ok ppl, heres the deal.

i ahve found two flights with ryanair from venice (i can esily get there by train) to brussles and two back. i can be in brussles on 17th either at 14h or 23h and returns are at 10h and 19:30h on monday (the latter preferable because its CHEAP). prices are acceptable. but the question is... do you have a reasonble (read not too expensive) youth hostel in bussles and hows public transport from airport to hostel?

i would really like to know the answers pretty soon so i can book the flights.

and, yes, that means that im most likely coming.

Overlord - there is one VERY cheap (FREE) climber's hostel known as "Taz and Paolo's". Daniel will be staying there as well, so you won't be bored during the day. Probably hungover, but not bored. :lol: As long as you don't mind dog-hair all over your clothes, I think you'll like it.

From Brussels Charleroi Ryanair has a bus service that runs to the Gare du Midi (the main train station in Brussels). From there, you hop on the metro for about 5 minutes to get to our place. Just get your tickets fixed and send us the details. If your flight arrives in the evening, we can probably even pick you up from the airport.

Cool! I can fly with SN and since Rasto will be there on Friday too I'll bite and take the flight Friday early(est) in the morning. Will head back on Monday around 3pm (so no running through endless airport corridors at freaking to early am and almost missing the flight this time).

Cool Daniel!

If Rasto is already here, he can let you in at our place. If not, we can work out some way to leave you a set of keys so you're not stranded in the city for the day.

Cracks! Did I hear something about cracks at this place??!

rrrrrright!
just this weekend I did 4 new routes: 3 roof cracks (of which one I christianed LEGOLAND.... :wink: ) and a very funny dihedral which is also very sparsely protected. You will like it!
Plus: we opened route # 800 in the area!

Hey sdc,

Can you hook us up for the campsite? So far it looks like we have:

steve-o
taz
paolo
zalastra
rasto
heiko
tisar
raf and Jason (two friends from BXL)

-Is it necessary/can we reserve tent space already?
-Can you provide directions from the nearest town to the campsite?

>Thx,

No worries, I'm sure we can get this worked out. If not, I kinda love hanging around in unknown places alone with my backpack and a book. Feels so... Kerouac-esque :lol:

hey boog,

no worries! I had a chat with the landlady and as it seems they have no other teams showing up. no tent space reservation required.
the directions are as for the area itself (see map on k-e.de)

just tell me who wants meat or wurst and how much and I can arrange that.
I can also get the famous basalt-beer (yes, it is called basalt-beer!).
just tell me how mucho...,

That's awesome, thanks!!

"How much beer".... hmmm... that is the hardest math question I have seen all week. Aren't you a scientist? Use your best methods to answer... (10-ish climbers) (x 9 alcoholics) + 1 Slovenian bot + climbing all day in the sun x infinity = A LOT OF BEER :D :lol:

Don't worry, we can split the price when we get there. Luckily for me, I only drink wine. :twisted:

chamonix, this is 'Congo Star' climb in the Envers des Aiguilles sector, near Dent du Requin. As nice as it looks!

and as for epics - offroute was one (finished with my performing a short tyrolean traverse just to impress our italian friend), rain was another, and crossing a water stream was the most adrenaline-providing one just before going to bed...i think he might never climb with me again :oops: :cry: :evil:

We climbed a 10 pitch route on limestone, Super Calcaire, on Sunday at the border to France. It was my partners second long route, got tired in the end. Then we got lost on the way down in the woods :oops:

Well tomorrow we leave Torino at 5.00 am to spend three days around Torino hut :D

:lol: Who knows....? No, of course not, our climbs went well as a climb should go. Waiting for the next one?

Well, a meeting I do not know would be possible? I have the following climbing schedule now upcoming. It is climbing vacation for me now :D

Tuesday: Route on Pyramide du Tacul
Wednesday: Route on Trident du Tacul
Thursday: Do not know exactly, I have proposed a route on Pic Adolphe Rey for my partner. We will see...

Sunday: Route on Rouge du Triolet, going up on Saturday evening to the Dalmazzi hut and probably using a tent again.

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday: We go to the area of Monviso and the hut Giacoletti. We will do three different routes in this area near the hut.

Then, then we go to Swiss and do some kind of rock-mix route on Zinalrothorn and maybe also l'Obergabelhorn. I have not seen the topos since they were proposed by my partner, we will discuss it more tomorrow evening.

Then I will leave for Sweden and be back in the end of August, so have a nice month all of you!

- Christian

HA...I find out today that they scheduled me for weekend nights in August (again)...since I wasn't at work last week, and they didn't give me any prior warning, I am taking that weekend off anyway...someone will cover me one way or another, heh. I'm not gonna pull another pfalz.
That being said, I will have to take a lot of pictures to tease Ashley with, heh.

And as for the wurst...I may not eat like a pig, but I'm definately not anarexic. I don't drink quite as much beer as the rest of them might either...consider me a newb/light-weight in that category.

So far, it sounds like this will be a great weekend. (I feel sorry for the sucker that has to work my shift for me...:P

sounds like a good plan, although you might want a rest in between all those routes in cham'. Pic Adolphe Rey is very cool, especially the summit block, you should def. do it! Trident looks very nice from grand cap' too. Are you camping in between in the Maudit cirque or going back to Torino each time? I saw some people camping down there last time, looked pretty convenient...

Keep us updated here, i'd like to know about the quality of those routes, and be careful and safe!

oh, and the w-end of aug 11-15 i might be in switzerland too, around grindenwald/interlaken area...

well, i should know by tommorow or the day after what my means of reaching the gathering will be.

option a is via venice and brusseles by train/plane/car.

option b is by car and a friend or two. that i kinda less likely, but it can happen.

but barring some unforeseen disaster (like the plane costing WAY too much) ill definitely be coming.

oh, and i prefer meat tp wurst, but ill eat almost anything.

sure, i'll try! how many are you in the car coming from brussels so far?

UA, so far it looks like 4 from Brussels. Me, Paolo, Overlord and Tisar.


Stone_D, is there a guidebook for the area? I know you'll be there, but we like guidebooks anyway for our library.


... speaking of which, UA - if you could bring along the VDM guidebook that'd be great.

no worries - i'll likely be flying to germany and mix in a work trip which means i'll get a car (because i'll probably be coming from DUS or Koln).

but i'll keep everyone posted in case people need rides ;)

hi out there,
i`m new in here :)
some of you might already know me, from your last gathering in vdm.
i was there with another group from germany.
so what i want know is to tell you that i will be there again from the 11th to the 15th of august.
i talked to heiko last weekend and he told me to post it and maybe start something like an eurofreaks gathering 3.5 in vdm.
so anybody who likes to come, just tell me.


robert :D

Hey Robert,

it seems very much as if I would be coming. I might be bringing 1-2 people from around here. I'll announce it in a new posting.

H.

Why the train? Grenoble is only about 8 hrs driving...

It's never too hot in Fonti... that's just a myth. Always plenty of good stuff in the shade!

Beth was just intelligent enough to make it small beers while Pat and I... forget about :oops: It was hillarious, espescially the part with our cancelor(ette) and the pubic weights... :lol:

They scheduled a company party for tomorrow. I doubt I'll be able to walk properly on Saturday, so climbing seems outa question 8^)
