Back to Allgau, this time with Bouldering!

Back to Allgau, this time with Bouldering!

Reading Time: 1 minute

I’m currently back in Allgau, the region I think all of Germany should be like. Granted, it’s the type of landscape and culture that most Americans associate with Germany anyway.

I’m staying in Sonthofen in a fantastic Ferienwohnung and managed to explore one of the largest bouldering areas in Allgau today, Hinterstein. I’ll do a full writeup once I return. In the meantime, here’s a peek:

Reading Time: 2 minutes

With temperatures hitting a scorching 15C today here in Stuttgart, my plans to climb outdoors were unfortunately dashed by a last minute cancellation on my partner’s part! That means of course: forever alone….or rather bouldering. So, I hit the gym today and was at least greeted by a dozen or so new problems bolted since the last time I went bouldering. On my way out, I wistfully snagged a few pictures of the climbs that could have been. Nevertheless, time to climb is always good.

The Ohm is here to rent

And in a first, my gym now has the Edelrid Ohm for rent for 3 EUR. Not surprising I guess. The German version of Climbing magazine (Klettern) did its tests of the Ohm there. I was surprised when reading the last issue to recognize all the walls.
