Nachdem ich in Tiefencastel die Route Super Sonic 8a+ und einen Tag später Red Bull 8a am Chropfberg klettern konnte, kehrte das Wetter ziemlich um. Regen, Regen und nochmals Regen. Das Klettern in der Ostschweiz war unmöglich. So ging ich für zwei Tage ins Tessin um neue Projekte für den Winter zu finden. Es war sehr heiss und feucht, nicht optimal um schwere Züge zu versuchen. Der Winter kann kommen, denn ich habe ein paar super schöne Boulder gefunden.

npr:

Afghanistan is a mountainous country, but scaling the peaks for sport is a new concept here. Mountaineering is considered an odd pastime for men, let alone women whose modesty Afghan society demands be protected at any cost – even death.

But there are enthusiasts. Zahra Karimi Nooristani and her sisters have inspired Marina Kielpinski LeGree to aim to create a crop of Afghan heroines passionate about improving their country and who inspire other women here to break barriers. 

LeGree, a 36-year-old resident of Norfolk, Va., who has spent years shepherding development projects in northeastern Afghanistan, directs a non-profit called Ascend that funds and organizes not only the training, but leadership classes for the Nooristani sisters and a handful of other Afghan girls recruited to be mountain climbers.

OK, obwohl ich Boulderer durch und durch bin, ist das natürlich immer noch ein absoluter Traum - einmal in der Wand übernachten - nur, ob ich das packe?
