Frankenjura

I’m back in Sweden after a couple of weeks in Germany where me and my friend Erik Massih stayed and climbed in Frankenjura. It was my first time in this renowned area and it was truly inspiring to check out some milstones in the history of climbing. It is mindblowing to think of how far a head in the evolution of the sport pioneers like Wolfgang Güllich was, when climbing routes like Action direct and Wallstreet. I did unfortunetely not get a chance to take photos of these particular climbs, but I hope you will appreciate the once I actually took.
