Piz Medel & Industry climbing

Last weekend I climbed with friends the Piz Medel (3325 meter ) in Switserland. The day we climbed the top was total flat light, it was not easy to find the top over the glacier and the way back was even harder with a view from max. 3 meter.

Beside sports I work as Industry climber/ rope acces technician. Since one month I work for the oebb (Austrian train). I lower down on a rope and throw down stones who could have hit a train. Sometimes the stones/rocks are larger than a meter, this are the best moments at work 😉 It is good to be in the nature every day mostly we have a great view over the valley from Vorarlberg. We have three, mostly four days  off every week. So I have time to go climbing, hiking and biking and to practice my job as photographer and organise sport camps for the future.

Happy butterflys in the valley.web medel nature 4 copymedel nature 3
