Magic Wood in Switzerland is not a big bouldering area, but pound for pound it might be one of the coolest and most beautiful in the world. Just three hours from Milan, it has a clear blue river, snow-capped mountains, a wild pine forest, and over 450 boulder problems to work on. It may have been waist-deep in snow for Alex and Jen's stay, but a previous visit with Mina Leslie-Wujastyk meant they could still showcase some of the best problems in the area. With a friendly campground, hostel and bar/restaurant just a five minute walk from the best of the bouldering, it would be crazy not to put this spot on your list of must-visit European climbing destinations.
