Verraze and back to the Zillertal

Well we are back in Innsbruck now but we have been in Italy for a week staying with Christian Core and Stella. We had one day climbing in Verraze as the rain just did not stop but we had a really good time, the place is really cool. Thanks to Chris and Stella for letting us stay and showing us around. So as the rain did not stop in Italy we headed back to the Zillertal for some Austrian bouldering at its best. We camped in the Zillertal over night and we awoke to clear skys RAD, so we headed to a wild boulder called FM4 8A\V11 this problem is sooo good i tried it once before but we could not figure out how to climb it but this time we figured out some trick beta and fired it before we lost too much skin. Next we went to the Zillergrund Forest and i wanted to try a project that i had seen last time i was there, its a really cool line two really hard moves leads to 6 more moves that are not very hard but you could blow it for sure. I climbed the new problem pretty fast and called it Purring Puma i think it is 8B+\V14 but time will tell after the new problem was done i went to try one more boulder for the day, Pressure Drop 8A\V11, and i managed to do that pretty fast as well so all up it was a pretty good day. I'll get some photos up soon See Ya

Well done Chris cool problem name, sounds like you are having a great time in Europe and we wonder how hard it will be for you to leave, so make the most before you return to the world of reality. Have fun, following your adventure with interest.

Lots of love
Dad and Sandy
