Boulder Worldcup Milano (ITA)

The 15th of April saw the start of the 2011 Bouldering Worldcup in Milano, Italy. The Qualification round went well and I qualifed for the semi-final in 7th. I was unfortunately very ill that night and the following day I entered the isolation zone and attempted to warm-up but felt terrible and had to pull-out of the event.

On a positive note, the season kicked-off with a great event and I am looking forward to the next round in Slovenia.

Tumpen Bloc

I had a quick session bouldering in Tumpen recently and was a little disappointed to find some of the blocs in a mess. The tick-marks and other signs on the boulders such as 'project' markers are totally unnecessary. I can not dictate what people should do, but please, just one thing: BRUSH OFF YOUR TICK-MARKS WHEN YOU ARE FINISHED!
