Split hike and ride Kaunertal & climbing accident

Last weekend I was at Kaunertaler gletsjer opening to promote split boarding with Split, Hike & Ride. Inclusive photo shooting and interview for radio FM4. Split Hike and Ride is a genius concept of two Austrians, who can perfectly split your favourite snowboard. They also offer one and more day ski/snowboard touring days for beginners and experienced freeriders. (check facebook: split hike ride).

Last week I climbed rocks in Bürser Platte, after Johann climbed redpoint a 9-. After about 10 meters I climbed into the roof and needed a rest to check out the next moves. The moment I jumped into the rope the hook broke and I fell backwards, head down into the next hook. I hit my head against the rocks and started bleeding and I was dizzy. Lucky me it stopped bleeding fast and the next day I was fine again. Happy that I could keep on climbing, and proud to climb another hard line in redpoint a technical overhanging crack (8+).
