One week later it was already time for the Swiss Championships in speed climbing, the last national competition of the season. I surprised myself by climbing a lot faster than in the few trainings I did the week before, which got me the silver medal and a new personal best of 11.14 seconds over 15 meters.

This also secured me 3rd place in the overall ranking of 2015! And yes, wearing high heels on the podium was quite a challenge ;)

Beside that, I did some setting at the newly opened bouldering gym in Buchs (SG) and it’s definitely worth a visit! They have fantastic problems, very diverse angles and a friendly atmosphere, what are you waiting for?
Other than that I simply enjoyed the great weather and climbed outside as much as possible. I even spent a few days on a rope and managed to climb Sonnenkönig (7c) in Ponte Brolla as well as the ultra classic Gandhi (7b/+) and Microchip (7b/+) in Cresciano, both first try. I got back on some of my bouldering projects in Brione and Chironico but I feel a little too weak to make good progress right now. Luckily my finger is finally getting better and I hope I can try hard again soon. Let’s hope the weather stays as nice and we still have the whole winter to climb in Ticino!
