2nd leg....Austria

We are now in Austria chilling out in the little town of Imst in the Tirol region. We left Ceuse now over two weeks ago, stopping off at Arco in Italy for 3 days on the drive over. Ceuse ended awesomely with loads of people sending ther projects and getting some great end of trip photo’s of the routes. Arco was then fun on the way over where I had a few sessions up at Massone. It was awesome but way too hot for that time of year! Was much nicer to hit the pool at the campsite and have a celebrated Italian ice cream in the town!

Austria now is much different, a totally different scene over here. We have had a few days out on the rock in the Zillertal, Otzal, and Neiderthai checking out some wicked new areas and a few we had been to 3 years ago. The climbing here is so different from what we had got used to over in the South of France! Its all much shorter, more bouldery, pretty crimpy, tough on the skin and on ‘Gneiss’ rock!! Ed competed in the European Youth Comp in Imst a couple of weeks ago where he came 9th and has just qualified for the semi's in the Wold Cup this weeknd. Venga Vamos!!!!
