One of the sends of the trip that "did not happen", and perhaps the one that annoysme the most. Pretty much everytime I tried it, I felt so strong on my warm up goes that I thought I would be sending it the very same day. Only to end up feeling weaker and weaker for each link-up try, having to leave shortly after arriving, exhausted and without having come any closer than doing the moves.Zone interdite in Montrouget remains on my list of unfinished buisness in Font.

On a Wednesday evening in mid April, I got a text off Carlos asking me if I wanted to come with him and his family to Kjugekull over the weekend. At first I thought there would be no way for me to make it as they where leaving the very next day, and I was suppoused to work the Saturday. But, not really knowing how I managed it, I found myself climbing in the sun with Carlos, Anna, Jon and Viktor for three days.
I feel like I'm never doing well climbing in Kjugekull. I tend to only get close on the things I am trying. Maybe it´s because I am used to be able to do many tries to work out problems, which is not possible in Kjuge due to the sharp rock. I however managed to get up at least a couple of things I had not climbed before and was very happy with that.
Yet another quick send for Nalle. Fifteen minutes of work and one more testpiece is in the bag. Watching him climb generates a lot of motivation, but also gives some perspective on how good some climbers really are...
Pierros is a small bar in Tousson run by Pierro him self. It´s definetly well worth a visit, if not for the good food so for the huge variety of beers. (Note: It´s only open Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings).
