I was very fortunate to visit this tranquil spot very close to the middle point of Swiss for a second time this year, this time however I was joined by my teammate, Kristian Hynek, to add a little bit of spice to my days up the mountain. Like with everyone in our team, Kris and I built up a lasting friendship, and it is so easy to live with either of our staff or team members, well... maybe JB is a little bit unorthodox, but he makes up for it in abundance with his charm and entertainment ;)
Apart from the apartment resting just below 2000 altitude meters, it is the opportunity to focus on all aspects that makes these camps so worth while for me, and off course the climbing, a shortfall in my racing arsenal but I get to do so much of that here and it showed in my climbing improvement this year.
So great to have the opportunity to stay here! Thank you Barti for the super kindness!
