July Guiding & Courses

Direct South-face, Untersberg, Berchtesgadener Hochthron
With the few days of good weather in the past week I fit in some guiding of multi-ptich sport climbing on the Hohes Brett and Untersberg.  I also had the last of my outdoor courses before leaving for six weeks to Kalmnos.

I climbed the very nice, "Wenn der Vater mit dem Sohne" (upper "Dreierweg" exit), VI+/240m with Wolfgang last Friday.  The face was mostly dry after the showers on the previous two days.

Earlier in the week, I was able to organize a kids climbing afternoon on the Gaisberg.  The small group of six climbers from 8 to 13 years old had their first experience with sport climbing on a limestone crag.  They were excited, scared, tentative, ambitious - a full bag of emotions that made for an unforgetable adventure for all!

Later in the week I had a basic outdoor climbing course, again on the Gaisberg.  We got the full course in before the forecast heavy afternoon thunderstorms


Thanks to all the course participants for a great time!  Click on the slide shows to download any photos from the albums.
