Magic Wood update.

It's been 2weeks now that I've been in magic wood, and the trip comes to an end, well I'll leave on the 16th so it's getting close...

I haven't climbed that much this trip, especially because only the hardest things remain to be climbed as I did most of the classics, so I haven't been climbing that much, especially because I was tired at the beginning of the trip and then because there as been good mood going on so I have been drinking some beers which is not the best way to be in shape.

This year, I felt like I want to focus less on climbing, and do other things like having fun with the people at the camping, read and write a little bit so I must say it is a big change for me as I am not obsessed about crushing.

However, I did manage to send "Deep Throat" 8B yesterday in a few goes (problem that I had tried years ago and a small session 2years ago when I actually injured myself) so it feels going pretty well considering the lack of training and proper crushing lifestyle.

I will try a bit Practice Of the Wild tomorrow and the next days, see how it goes as I kind of dropped the remembrance project as it really feels to hard for me as my height requires me to do to many footwork which I don't see myself doing from the start... It really feels like 8C to me and I am not ready for it considering my shape now. I will therefore try somewhere in between and nana bianca the next days.

About Bodhi camping.

I have been also working a little bit in the camping, managing property and I would like to explain a few things for those who read my blog and might go to the woods.

Switzerland has a strict policy, even though many people complain about the thoroughness of the people, well it is the way things work here.

About the trashes, please sort them out!!

Don't put glass in normal bins, or metal, there are bins for glass-metal-plastic-carton-leftovers.
I always see bag full of those, unsorted just being leftover, I guess bins from people staying in cars and caravans, being to lazy to sort them out...
Most funny thing is that there are most of the time people complaining about capitalism, saying that we should respect the environment, try not to consume too much, etc.

So please be in accordance to your opinions.
Act here as if you were in your home country, seriously it cost nothing to sort trashes, just lazy people irresponsible do that.

About the guesthouse "Edelweiss"

Thomas, now manages the restaurant/guesthouse.

With this change, you can now come and have free wi-fi acces, playstation, big sofa in a special room.
There is also the possibility to shower for like 3CHF.

So please when you come to magic wood, respect the installations and everything because with the actual flow of people nowadays, it can get really dirty and we should avoid troubles before they occur...
Don't forget that climbing is a small community, and if we want to keep doing it, we have to be responsible!


-It will prevent the rock from getting soft too fast.
-It will help you during attempts.

About tick, let me tell you than putting ticks everywhere is useless, use your brain, trust me any brain is capable of reminding where to grab a hold ( ticks should be used when necessary)

Ticks are not forbidden or whatsoever but if you choose to use them, clean them after and don't leave that task to other people.


Not a hard task... And it is for everyone's best interest.

Cheers and enjoy climbing!
