Lucerne done

Do you know the happy feeling of (re)discovering some new muscles thanks to their pain? Well today I am very happy and I rediscovered many muscles that I hadn't use in a while (turns out 17days of kitesurfing dosen't train you for 140km of biking :) ) Any way it was great to go out on a summit again and it was foremost great to go swimm in the river at the lowest point at

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

BE happy

If you are scared of something go out and face it. You might loose big time but you might as well win, and when you win you are an happier and stronger person... That is exactly how I feel right now, before leaving for Finsteraarhorn I was stoked, but also very very scared of what was to come. Now just after swimming in the Aare 60h after leaving I know that if I wouldn't have

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

At least we had the view

We all have to take decision but sometimes we don't like the decision that we have to take. This night I had to take such one. The glacier from Furi all the way to the  Monte Rosa hut had absollutely no snow cover and we had to carry our ski all the way. This delayed us by over 2.5h. We arrived to the hut around 4.20. We were still 7h from the summit. I needed

One of the advantages of being self-employed is that you can trade a Sunday for a Monday if the Sundays weather doesn't seem nice. That is exactly what I did... But since I'm talking about weather let me give you some background information first. Thursday Eliane and I went ski-touring in Zermatt to get some acclimatization for Saturday's project. I wanted to give a shot at a very big summit, the canton Valais. But, and
