The Swiss bouldering trip

Ok, so you'd think with a week in the bouldering heaven of Magic Wood, Cresciano and Chironico that the team would have come back with a comprehensive list of problems ticked off in their newly acquired guidebooks. The truth was a little different. Most of the week comprised of who could SEND the 7a+ sandwich problem. The problem being who could open their mouth wide enough to fit the damm thing in. (The muscle cramp in my jaw being testimony to this!)

However some climbing was done and here's a collection of the photos.
