The real milestones always involve specific circumstances, such as weather conditions, unique locations, climbing partners.
One particular milestone was the Hotel Supramonte in Sardinia. We had to set up an emergency bivvie on the 400m high wall because of a storm. It came howling through the very narrow gorge and we had to sit it out in our little nook for 15 hours!
And then there are all the wonderful landscapes I still have in my mind's eye.
There are also the first ascents that I bolted myself, when I realised they would go, that they were super cool and that they suited me down to the ground. It is discoveries like these, in addition to my career, my family and other projects, that keep me motivated to train.
This year I don't have as much time for climbing. I wanted to tick off Underground 9a and Martin Krypon 9a in preparation for my spring project and then nail that. Underground is in the bag :)
I'd like my everyday life to continue as it is, our child to grow and our house to grow too :)
