The Association of the year end with the name of new year's Eve (german "forest man", from Latin silva "Forest") goes back to the year 1582. At that time, the Gregorian reform of the calendar moved the last day of the year from 24 December to 31 December, the anniversary of the death of Pope Silvester I (d. 31 December 335). The liturgical calendar leads the day since 813 as his name day (wikipedia.org).
It has become the custom to draw to discover new lines on the last day of the year in the forests and defeat.
Until now, successfully returned each year and enjoyed as a conqueror of new Boulder, and at the same time as the last of the year.
Now it is happening again and probably waiting to be discovered already the one or the other lines out.
Hope we that this time everything good has an end.
So also we wish you a happy new year and a successful year of Bouldering 2017.
