Just before Christmas I made a quick trip to Cresciano in Switzerland.
The highlight of the trip was being recommended the problem Stinky Pete by Pete Robins (it’s his problem) and then overhearing some climbers in the bar at 1001bloc saying it was the best problem in Cresciano.
Pictured below is some gangly punter on the ‘best problem in Cresciano’. The climbers didn’t know why it was called Stinky Pete and when I told them they thought it was very funny…
The new bouldering hostel run by Andrea is superb – you should check it out if you are in the area and need somewhere to stay: 1001bloc
Hopefully I’ll get out in the current Welsh Winter conditions and have something to blog about soon.
