6th Climb Web Net meeting

The ClimbwebNet annual meeting was originally conceived by small group of climbing web editors who met in the south of France. This year the 6th annual meeting was held in the Frankenjura, Germany on the 25th and 26th of May.
The meeting coincided with the climbing festival, where the attendees enjoyed fun climbing and Bavarian “dunkel beer.”

After all the hard work and discussions were completed, all the members were given an opportunity to take part in a massive party Friday, from which some of us were very tired. Several went to the bed to be fresh for tomorrows climbing. The next day was very beautiful and sunny and therefore we went to a shady north oriented wall, Schonunger Wand, where we climbed several eights (congrats to Alan for his stunning on-sight send of the brave Beppi´s Traum route) Then we moved to Dörnroschen Wand where we tortured our bodies on slabs and overhangs.

Evening was close so we decided to celebrate the successful day by eating cake at the famous Wald Café in Pottenstein. Later in the evening we went to the show at the Betzenstein swimming pool where a massive party took place and a fun DWS competition was organized.

The last day of our stay we went to the well known spot called Schöne Aussicht (which means something like scenic view) where we did plenty of routes in the mild sun and finished the day at Rote Fels. Jiri met some local residents (bees) trying routes on the right side of the crag, the while other guys had fun climbing one of the longest route (Schaumslager) in Frankenjura.

All in all, it was a great event: perfect climbing in perfect weather and some work carried out by all who attended concerning managing and reporting on climbing websites.  Many thanks also to the organizers of the festival and to Sarah for hosting the event and to all the other supporters and friends. As we have invited a very strong polish website Wspinanie.pl and they generously accepted, we now are stronger and have the opportunity to move our next meeting to the beautiful polish climbing area next to Krakow; the Polska Jura.
