Areas include Sustenpass, Gotthard/Gottardo, Val Masino (Val di Mello), Magic Wood, Grimselpass as well as the Zillertal areas Ginzling and Sundergrund. There is also some footage from the mountain cottage at Valle di Lei -- a great place to stay if you’re visiting Magic Wood.
Problems range from 6A to 7C and include Propellerhead Rechts (7A), 3er Dyno (7A+), Super Bosna (6C), Bosna Genial (7A), Ziliman (7A), Die Schöne (6C), hasch Mich (7A+), Il Marrochino (7A+), Oscurita (7A), Uwes Traverse (7A), Guava Yelly (7A+) as well as some unnamed 7C’s, a 7B, a 6C+ and some 6A’s
Hope you’ll enjoy the video and be inspired to visit some of the areas in the beautiful high Alps of Tyrol.
Climbers: Katja Barkhage, Elin Sohlberg, Jacob Stærk, Damian (who Elin brought from the UK), Marco (who we met on the trip), Mike (who jumped out of the forrest in Magic Wood and climbed a problem with us), Thomas (who we spend a lot of time with) and Manuel (who we were lucky to keep on bumping into).
Im Juli 2010 besuchten Mia und ich das Bouldergebiet Silvapark in den Silvretta Bergen von Österreich. Dank der hohen Lage auf etwa 2300 Metern sind die Temperaturen auch im Sommer gut auszuhalten. Die Gneisblöcke sind meistens scharf und sehr rauh - ohne stabile Haut kann der Bouldertrip deswegen bereits am ersten Tag zu Ende sein.

In july 2010 Mia and i visited the bouldering area silvapark in the silvretta mountains, austria. Situated 2300 above the sea, the summer is the perfekt time for a visit. Bring lots of skin, as the rock is razor sharp. The full report of our bouldering trip is online at RokBlog.de
When the summer heat makes it impossible to climb in areas which are located in valleys, Silvretta is the place to be. High up in the Austrian Alps there's always a little breeze. The rock is sharp and after some climbing days your finger tips will bleed when you're crimping hard. That's how alpine bouldering should be!
