    Taming a dragon

    April 21, 2017 in Austria ⋅ ☀️ 4 °C

    Today, we did one of Austria's highlight fixed-rope-climbs "the dragon wall". It was our first longer outdoor climb and a challenging one for beginners for sure. But after the practicing indoors, we felt ready for a more challenging one.

    The hike goes up the steep wall on the left of picture #2 all the way to the mountain summit. We were climbing for 3 hours and then hiked down on the other side of the mountain for another 2. And to be honest, for the first 20 minutes or so I was quite nervous. Climbing outside simply is another story than being indoors where everything is controlled, secured and known. But being on the fixed rope is super safe and so we got to learn and enjoy 3 amazing hours of adventure.

    I definitely learned to trust myself and the equipment and we've all caught the climbing fever now :)

    Same climb, different brother :)

    April 29, 2017 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 6 °C

    Mo and I had planned a climb into a canyon at lake Wolfgang, but after a full night of snow, the climb was covered in a foot of snow and we had to change our plans​. So we decided to do the dragon wall climb which I had done with my younger brother a week earlier.

    It was so fun, again. Mo is such a natural climber and rocked through the 3 hour climb in just over 2 hours! I could barely keep up ;) The whole trip including hiking in and out was nice, sunny and we just enjoyed a great time together. Thanks Mo, and let's do that again soon :)
