Magic Wood - Bloc Bouldertopo
Magic Wood is a worldclass bouldering venue, in south east Switzerland. It is is situated in a wooded ravine, near the village of Ausserferrera, in the German speaking canton of Grisons.
The granite blocks generally offer a steeper style of climbing and are, for the most part, located in pine woodland on the western slopes of the ravine.
A small group of boulders (including the famous Bruno block) are located in the river bed.
Late spring, summer and autumn are the best times to visit. A unique feature of 'cold venting', emanating from the deep permafrosts and caverns beneath the blocks, make conditions around the boulders much better than the general air temperatures would suggest, making this a popular summer destination.
This is the first dedicated, printed guidebook to Magic Wood. It is split in to 9 sectors with quality overview maps and photo topos, with Fontainebleau grades used throughout. There are indexes of the routes by grade and alphabetically, covering more than 950 boulder problems. There are comments accompanying almost all of the problems. The guidebook is in German, English and French.
