Climbing Gallerie Weesen

Before Alex continued on to Croatia for more climbing we went for another after work session at the Gallerie Weesen. We started in the forest sector and struggled on some very polished and very hard routes for their rating. I fought my way up tiny crimpers on the Marie Rhana 6c+ on top rope before finally admitting defeat on the last two moves. Definitely doable, but my finger strength just isn't there yet. We then moved on to the sector above the road. This features nominally harder routes, but the rock still has more texture and thus feels easier to climb. I took an unexpected lead fall on a balancy traverse in Scary 6a+, just when I thought I had mastered the crux. C'est la vie.

  • L'os à mâle 5c+
  • Levitation au voyage 6b
  • La Voltige 6a
  • Marie Rhana 6c+
  • Opus 1 6b
  • Scary 6a+
I wonder why it's called the forest sector?
Scrambling down to the main crag.
What do we climb next?
Mürtschenstock. A full traverse of that ridge is on my todo list ;-)
