The Tyrolean Christof Rauch is currently on a bouldering trip in Valais. Already in the first days he scored four Boulder in the eighth grade of France, including Scarred For Life (8b +).

For about a month, Christof Rauch ventures back to the Boulderblocks. For a long time he fought with an injury and had to give up on ultra-hard trains. All the more often he was therefore on the rope this summer. Now he is back in his best discipline and is currently in Valais, Switzerland.

Was now a long time on the rope: Christof smoke in the route absinthe

After a seven-hour car ride, he arrived at Fionnay and hooked the same day still the start-up Scarred For Life stand (8a +) from. On the second day he made short work of Permanent Midnight, also 8a +, and got a repeat of the Dave-Graham boulder Scarred For Life (8b +), this time with a kick-off. He closed the day with the inspection of Boulders Seveso (8a +).
