Welcome to

The Gateway, 8b

I know it's been way too long... But my job has kept me insanely busy those past months. However, after coming back from a fun little trip to Red Rocks, Nevada I got stoked to finally attempt some of the last few climbs around Graz that I had never tried so far.


9 First Ascents at Black Mountain

During my time in L.A. Black Mountain was the place I visited most. However, despite the fact that a new guidebook was recently published, which attracted tons of climbers, I still found plenty of yet unclimbed lines.


Obscurus Sanctus, 8b/+? >>> First Ascent!

Sometimes it all come together: Perfect setting, amazing moves, great features and an awesome line. This is what might be Southern California’s new hardest test piece.


Flowers in a hail storm - more 8a flash

El Nino is crazy! 2 months ago it seemed already way too hot to climb at Joshua Tree and now we experienced an exceptional day with wind, sun, clouds and even some hail! Good conditions to flash more V11 (8a) stuff!


The Legal Alien - another V10 flash

Since I came to the States in February to work for NASA I climbed at a couple of really classic areas like Bishop and Joshua tree. Sill, this is the first update of my USA stay because the name of the climb - Illegal Alien - made me apprechiate even more that I have the opportunity to live and climb here in California: Legally! I am a legal alien.


5 Days of Colorado Bouldering - and some flash ascents up to 8a

What was supposed to be a serious 4-week bouldering trip ended up being a short, 5-day scouting tour. Still, it was definitely worth it!


Flagstaff - a streak of bad luck?


It has happened to all of us: You fall on the last easy move of an otherwise hard problem. It sucks, but at least it doesn't happen often, right!? At least that's what I thought. Until I went to Flagstaff...


Joshua Tree Weekend

In the early ninties I saw pictures of Joshua Tree for the first time. Since then I've wanted to see this fantastic place.


Cresciano Weekend - La pelle, 8a - FLASH

After the last trip the motivation to come back to Ticino was high. But heavy snowfalls delayed our journey and turned Chironico into a winter wonderland.
