"I have been lucky really as one of the boulders I was trying stays dry in the rain so I could continue to work this. It is called Alphane Moon (8A) and is a really fun climb. Kind of like board climbing on small but positive crimps. It was in varying condition as the low cloud often meant that the holds would be a bit damp but often it was in fairly good nick. It finally succumbed a couple of days ago I am glad to say and now the weather is picking up so we can return to other things we were trying. Hopefully this spell of good weather will continue!"
The day after her ascent of Alphane moon, Mina also ticked Made in Norway (7B) and Made in Ticino (7C).
Chironico is an alpine bouldering area in the Ticino, Switzerland. It is close to the other famous bouldering destination Cresciano. UKC have destination guides to both areas coming up for this winter.
