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

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

Wow what a nice place! St Chrischona has an amazing view from where you can see up to 10 other summits. The campus is a theological school that hosts over 100 students.

Yay, with the perfect weather I was hoping for (the trees full of fresh snow and a nice continuous snow fall) the whole group (Giulia, Simona, Cassy, Arianna, Tessa and her dad) finally reached the summit. Chasseral West is, lets put it nicely, not really a prominent summit, in fact it is just a secondary summit of the Casseral, which is just over the cantonal border. But still we had lots of fun and a really

Wow what a nice feeling, summit and wonderful weather after starting in the crappiest fog ever!!! The ride was cool, first it was sooo foggy that it was actually "raining", then I was suddenly surprised by an airbus alnding 50m fom me, then exiting the fog to a beautiful day and finally confirming my small mountains complex theory... the craziest steep road E-V-E-R!!! but what a view now

The "Small mountains'" paradox stays strong, Zugerberg the big bike climb of today featured over 600m of altitude gain in just over 6km for  nice average steepness of 10%!! but really a nice climb, and really super beautiful the high plain at the top. Only drawback were the million peoples up there escaping the town's fog. After a nice flattish ride in stunning landscapes we finally arrived to Alpli, the end of the bike part.
