1. 📹: Fire Walk With Me, 7B+ ✔️ 2nd go. 2. 📹: Purkespranget direct, 7B? ✔️ First go.
A bit cooler temps yesterday, it even started to rain a little! It didn't affect the climbing, though, actually it was quite refreshing 😅
Fire Walk With Me is a burly boulder that suited me to a tee: straight forward moves on underclings and a good pinch. Cool!
Another sweet day bouldering with @oyvindville, @camillaknudsen, Trond, Sofia and Vilmer. We even got company from @danielgappmaier AKA Dan the man with the leather tan ✌️😎 He told us about a direct start of Purkespranget, the boulder is so nice I couldn't resist to try it with a different start 😂

Legend has it that Maja was a Goddess and lived in the distant Phrygia, in the company of her only son, who was so big that he was no longer called by his name but simply the 'Giant'. One day, during a battle, the Giant was mortally wounded. The mother asked for help from an oracle, who thus spoke: "On a very high mountain, beyond the sea, at the foot of a Great Stone, a miraculous herbs grows capable of healing your son". Maja gathered her things, loaded them on a ship with her dying son and, accompanied by her servants, set off in search of the great mountain and the miraculous grass. They sailed for days and days until, finally, they landed in the port of a city called Ortona. But the mountain was still far away, and after asking the inhabitants for directions, they set off again, carrying the body of the Giant on a stretcher. After days of hard road they arrived on the magical mountain, but when the herbs was close to being caught, the Giant, exhausted by fatigue, died. Maja buried him at the foot of the Great Stone which, in honor of here son, has since been called 'the Giant'. Then, crazed with grief, she fled to the mountain opposite, from which one could see the place where here son was buried. She lived in the caves, in the company of the wild beasts, helped and fed by the shepherds of the place, pity for here sad story. Just them, at here death, they buried her in the mountain where she lived and who, in her honor, was called 'Majella', that is 'mother', as she is still called by the Abruzzese. The shepherds tell us that when the storm rages on the Majella, along with the scream of the wind, you hear the voice of Maja who, in despair, invokes her son.

For me, going climbing has never been a problem in the same way going to an ordinary gym. I guess I've never seen climbing as "must do some exercise" because I'd skip happily to wall because most of my friends hang out there and there's always a problem that I'm working on and one I want to tick but when it comes to going to an ordinary gym, I'd come up with excuses and don't find it equally as challenging. How do you see climbing?

Camiño is climb. 🧗♂️ The refrain that accompanied us along the way was "Under this sun it is nice to walk ... but you have to sweat!"...today in fact the climbs have put us a bit in difficulty since we are fed of fatigue.
But the Camiño is also suffering and requires so much determination and patience: "no pain, no gain". But how satisfying it is to get to the top to turn back and enjoy the show that this unique region, Galicia, has to offer?
We cross valleys, pine and eucalyptus woods, maize and white grapes plantations, fruit trees such as kiwis and apples and then unexpectedly find ourselves facing the ocean. And reached the destination a beach, just like a reward after so much effort.
Buen Camiño pelegrino! Ultreya ... Suseya!
