Return to Brüggler

Wilson, Linus, Gintare and me used the Swiss national holiday 1st of August to go climb the Brüggler south face again. This time we chose the "Namenlose" ("nameless") route. A 6a with a crux right at the start - a short overhanging section. A beautiful sunny day - by the time we finally got down again we were out of water and dying of thirst. Fortunately we passed a watering tub for the cows on the way down, fed from a spring. The barn a little bit further was even better: self service beers with a piggybank. Much appreciated!

Coming back to Zürich we crashed Henrik's rooftop BBQ party and watched the fireworks going off all around us in the city.

Great day!

The objective: ~270m of razor sharp limestone.
Start of the first pitch of the "Nameless".
Good throw!
The final rappel back down.
Reward!
