Yes well, I guess the title spoils the surprise somewhat, but this is the second part of Nalle Hukkataival and Co's adventures in Grampians, Australia.
Nalle is having a rather busy November. First, he spent a rainy week in Maltatal, Austria, where he made a few nice first ascent but didn't get a chance to try what he came for, the sit start project of Klem Loskot's Bügeleisen, 8B+. As usual, it was soaked...
Now, he is back home in Finland where the weather i.e rain is preventing him from trying his projects...
Soon, he is going to Sardinia with La Sportiva to try and find new projects. Let's hope it doesn't rain.
Finally, he is finishing the month in Stockholm with the La Sportiva Legends Only invitational. It's indoors, so let it rain!
