Nalle Hukkataival has made a quick repeat of Fred Nicole's Entlinge, ~8B+, at Murgtal, Switzerland.
Nalle's basecamp is currently in the Averstal/Magic wood, where I guess he and his buddy Dave (Graham) plan to climb everything from 5+ and up.
It's been raining however. A lot.
So, instead of spending another day relaxing, true bromance style at Grand hotel Quellenhof & Spa Suites, they escaped to Murgtal.
"We drove to Murg for the day and even though the conditions were very humid"..."I quickly managed to to slide my way up Entlinge, a nice tensiony boulder from Fred!"
