Since this year the summer was dry and not too warm, I came up with the idea to go bouldering again in the "Gulag".
After I was at the "Hängenden Block" and "Abendland-Block" and had lost my strength, I wanted to make a nice final boulder. The choice fell on the "Ost-Block", more precisely on the Boulder "Liegestuhl ". This is located at the left end of the block. The difficulty is with Fb 6a, so no problem!?. It turned out to be a problem, as a moral problem. I always had the uneasy feeling that in case of a fall, you could fall all the way down. After the inspection and the feeling that it was not a problem, I found my misgivings almost ridiculous.
After I did not boulder for 2 months in the "Gulag", was on Sunday with Rainer and the dogs as an accompaniment, again time for it.
I chose the "Gulag-Block" and repeated the moral "Hohe Kante" and then "Meiseltraverse" and "Meiselfrei".
For the conclusion of the sunny day, it should now be the sitstart of the "Liegestuhl".
The moral concerns of my last visit there partially returned.
After I found my variant quickly, it started. Left the edge to the right of the side hold. Well start to tension and suddenly this cracking. I knew it had a hold broken and the consequences as well  .....
after a short mate contact, it went all the way down ... shit .... but luck.
Just a few scratches and the realization that you can fall all the way down.
