It has been a while but the recent few weeks have been a bit of a blur. I moved back to Switzerland, tried the story, and found some projects. That was a few weeks ago and then on 8 March, I made the second ascent of Dave Graham’s “The Story of Two Worlds.” The send itself was a little less euphoric than i would have expected. A few days prior to the send, I dabbed a tree on the final 6b move of the climb. It was completely unexpected and hard to deal with. It took so long and so much hard work to get where i had that it just was heart breaking to deal with such a crappy incidence when coming so close to something that close to my peak ability.
Fortunately, I was able to make a legitimate send a few days later which was a HUGE relief but just did not give me the satisfaction i really thought it would. def had something to do with coming so close and having to come back to pretty much climb it again.
The next few days, I spent trying project around Ticino and got quite close to the one in Brione that i had put up pictures of earlier on the blog. Then the weather set in and so did my sickness. Rain started to fall and i got superrr sick for a few days. I laid around in bed for a good 22 hours one day and just tried super hard to no throw up.
Since the weather did not seem to be shaping up at all, I headed to font and have been here ever since, mainly trying to get over my sickness. I feel much better and look forward to trying some hard things before heading back to America on 25 March!
It has been 9 months now since i left on my trip and it is crazy to think i am going home now! But the psyche is high! I have tons of trips planned and so much more rock to climb!
