A shiver run down the spine of climbers and locals early morning: ominous thunderclouds gathered covering the sky above San Vito. In a matter of minutes a heavy shower with hailstorm flooded everything, and here we feared the worst.
Yet the sun came, and the day turned perfect. At noon the walls were already dry, and hundreds of climbers started going up and down the crags. The only event affected was the DWS at Cala Firriato, which has been postponed to Sunday. Rendez-vous at 9 am at the port.
Getting back to climbing: Silvio Reffo enjoyed climbing at Cala Mancina - yesterday he was pondering a rest, being affected by a sty, but seeing the wonderful sky towering above San Vito you'll forget any ailment and hurry to the crags.
Daila Ojeda and Barbara Raudner got some rest, aiming at competing in the Top Climbing contest which will take place on Sunday at Cala Mancina - yet, they might climb with the many people attending the Open Marathon Climbing at the Bunker.
In the evening, Daniel Jung and Neil Gresham gathered the other bigs and their many fans at YMCA Climbing House in San Vito for a pint of beer and some chit-chat.
