Exploring The Bavarian Forest

Trip two to the bavarian forest- this time for some bouldering. The weather was pretty bad, but we managed to climb around 25 boulder problems (mostly new) at the esoteric venue of 'Pirka'. This wooded paradise lies a little east of Viechtach (my chum Toby's hometown) and offers a fair few problems that can be climbed in the rain.

 Toby managed to link his mega-long project after a lot of time perfecting the hugely complex beta. There were a few other problems on this block and then others scattered all over the forest. Of particular interest is the unclimbed sit start to a crimp horror-show, that will be really hard. One to go back to one day- really inspiring. 
We didn't get that many photos as we were too busy climbing- but above is me trying a project that will be about font 7c/+. Couldn't do the crux at all- need to get stronger!
