|own made pic at an evening session in March...|
Last week on Tuesday I've already had a very good try. I climbed the whole thing but dropped on the last but two move. I was so pumped that I wasn't able to hold one of the rare good holds on the left arete. Or better said... I didn't even reached it. Unfortunately it was my third try... so I've used already some power in my tries before. But in such a long boulder (20+ moves) you must have a good endurance and you have to be quite fresh, if you like to climb the whole thing.
On my first try I felt so good... I really thought: "That's it!!". But the same as last week... I messed it up because of a stupid mistake.
Because of the fact that it was my last try again, I've had a lack of power. I climbed up to the LAST HARD MOVE to a really good hold... but was not able to hold on. Sure... there would be one or two moves more to go... but these ones are definitely not the problem when I stick the good hold there.
Why was it not possible to make no errors on my tries before... aaaaarghhhh...
Now it's definitely time to do that beast...!!!! ;o)
Here some nice pics which Aldo made on Saturday...

|the hard thing is to stop the huge vigor (dynamics) on quite bad holds...|
|just bad holds on steep rock... and this after some 15 moves before! ;)|
