More climbing

Went for a short run with Peter in the heat about midday and then went climbing with Ulli at the Alpenblick on Gruenten in the evening. Did a couple of long friction climbs. Usually I don’t like this kind of climbing but today I enjoyed it.

Yet more climbing

Another day of climbing in sunny Allgaeu. Ulli, Peter, and I headed up to Gruenten and went climbing at a crag somewhere near the top(?). The crag was a line of cliffs on the mountain protruding like a puffy scratch. The rocks rose out of the ground allowing us to climb on either side of the crag. Peter and I climbed together leading three climbs and then climbed another four on top rope. Peter is a kiwi who lives in Zell am See in Austria and works as an outdoor instructor. He’s a good outdoors guy and fun to hang out with.

Another good day out.
