Wit No Pressure

New One in Eldo Zone! 16 moves long aka Wheel of Trenta! 
Edges, slopers, jugs, compression, pinches, toe & heel hooks (no kneebar unfortunately!) and lil spice throw in with Colorado type of landing. Felt hard(ish) but then again, maybe I'm just unfit? Well, time will tell...It's a good one, that's fo sho! 
 I have nice video in the making so check back in a few days...Up By The River pt.2!

Eldorado Zone

On The Hunt!
We add some fresh ones in ever growing circuit of new blocs up in Eldo Zone. Katja Vidmar climbed first ascent of sit start to amazing river polished fontaesque bloc ''Rufus'' which was opened by Blaž Mur few weeks ago. Also worth to mention are two back to back repeats of  high and spicy ''Cortez the Killer'' from Jure Piršič and Aljoša Bremec. Well done guys!
 Font? Nah son! Just good ol' Soča River slopers

Beast of no Nation

After ten years hiatus with development of new blocs in Trenta Valley it seems that now new stuff is popping out everywhere! With more experience, fresh eyes and some friendly advice (thanks Uroš Krapež!) I'm finding more and more blocs every weekend. This time we hiked little higher up from road and check this new zone with couple of massive blocs. Just cleaned and climbed this one, the bigger lines are still waiting!

 Took three hours of cleaning, brushing and landing building before this thing was climbable.

Four Star Arête

Last week Uroš Krapež send me an email where he listed some potential new spots in Trenta valley. One thing immediately caught my eye, ''the most perfect arête I ever saw''. Because I'm sucker for beautiful lines I couldn't resist for long and on Saturday morning I drove up there to see it for myself what is all about. I have to say that he was absolutely right, it is one of the most amazing arêtes I ever came across in our mountains. As I figured  later apparently it was climbed before, which doesn't  surprise me at all. It sits just next to pretty popular path to Zapotok waterfall, around fifteen minutes form parking lot in Zadnja Trenta. Guy who claims that he climbed first didn't give any name, so for now I'm referring it as ''Four Star Arete''. Happy Hunting!
