The first trip of my summer holidays was to Rodellar, Spain. It was just a short trip for about one week, but it was wonderful there. The time there was not coined by climbing hard stuff (because of no endurance), it was more about having fun and relax. The climbing area there is a paradise, I really enjoyed it.
But we had to leave because my best friend Lena and I were nominated for the Boulder Worldcup in Munich. I was super psyched to compete in a Worldcup again. It was the last one for this year but I really hope I’m allowed to climb some next year again. Watching the finals always makes me so motivated for training.
It was also the last competition for this year, so time for ROCKCLIMBING!!!!!!

For Lena it was the first time bouldering outside, but she did very well!

She only had problems with the mantles. :D
I think she should occasionally go outside for bouldering with me!

After million tries I was also able to send Supernova, my second 7C boulder!!! This made me super happy!!!
The best thing about going to Magic Wood is that you meet so many great people there. But the Camping has some problems maybe they have to close the camping and ban bouldering. Look at this!
So please be kind to the woods and don’t let them take away this perfect playground!
The last big event of this summer was the Adidas Rockstars last weekend. I was a super funny event especially the Build your Boulder Competition. I was setting a quit funny run and jump boulder with Alex Huber. Unfortunately I hurt my knee in the qualifiers so walking and climbing was very hard and painful, but it got better with every hour. Don’t know if it really got better or I just got more resistant.

It was a great conclusion of my summer and I realized once again that the whole climbing community is just awesome! So many nice, different and funny people on one spot.

Now it’s getting cold, winter is coming! But please summer stay a little longer you have been so amazing!
Thank you guys, especially Lena, for making this summer so special! It was probably the best of my life!
