No Pain, gain!

If you are scared of something go out and face it. You might lose big time but you might as well win, and when you win you are a happier and stronger person... I remember writing this after having finished the longest summit I did: Canton Bern and last Friday it was again a day like this. Perfect weather window, perfect conditions, the road open and without snow, the snow coming down to 15min walk

Game on again… Lucerne

Wow it was a looooong break, but so is life, after doing 15 summits in 2015, this year I've done 0 so far. A mix of sketchy winter, need to take some time off from 27summits.ch due to  way to much hectic during the production of the documentary, lots of  work, moving, travelling and so on kept me away from my beloved project for 8 months. And it was good. It was good to take

SHunday SHunday

So after a long break with plenty of cool things Happening, I was finally out on a summit mission again! The last easy one, so I invited many people to come, we finally where 6. After a nice breakfast in our new home, we drove to the Rhine at the border between Kanton Zurich and Schaffausen, a wonderful region in full autumn clothes. Pity only the sun is not showing. Arrived at Eglisau, we met

Ticino 2.0

Adula was the first summit I did, back on September 1st 2013. Back then my project didn't Exist yet. I was just trying to go from the lowest point to the highest in my natal canton. Then half year later in canton Glarus on the top of Tödi I decided many things. Among others I decided to go for all cantons. Fast forward to today. What the heck am I doing in Tenero (the lowest

Jurassic trip

The plan was big, very big, but once again the conditions and weather said no. So instead of tackling the Finsteraarhorn we changed destination to its neighboring canton of Jura. Originally planed as a Reggae summit (probably around 7h), the the Mont Raimeux can actually be reached by a very long ridge that requires climbing and scrambling. Obviously we opted for this variant adding around 5h of fun to the trip. But let's start from the

A bit of behind the scenes

Well, some days are now passed after the first big attempt to a big big summit. Pity it didn't work but I'm happy of how well it went. I managed to be faster than the schedule on the whole bike part and arrived up to 2900m being tired but still alive which is great. I'm confident that if we didn't have to carry the ski for the whole way we would have been at the
