Off to the slightly warmer Italy, with its great coffee, pizza and pasta! Next to the ancient aquaducts and collesseum, the city offers a fine bouldering gym.
The bouldering area is split into two parts. One is rather small, where falling down does not guarantee not touching a climber from the other side. The second part is wide and good fun. The levels are hard to predict: some colors are graded, however, one yellow was a warming up to me, another really challenging. Some colors were not graded by a number, soms colors were hard to distinguish from other close colors. After a little search and talking with some locals, there was enough to climb! Lucky to have met nice locals who also provided some bouldering tips. Great plus!
A large training area, which would not have been necessairy to use; the next day we ended up sightseeing most highlights of Rome. By foot. What a beautiful city! With its impressive cathedrals, vibrant city parcs and presence of old-Roman landmarks, like aquaducts and a colossal colosseum. A welcome few degrees celsius warmer than in The Nederlands (or Iceland): a nice place to visit again!
The Bouldertour Europe 2017 is on! Visiting in France, Iceland and Italy in three weeks. Not bad at all
