Two first ascents from New Kowk aka Kovk 2 aka Kowberg. Both around 6C/7A, one is located next to the road, while other sits on top of the ridge, quick 40 minutes from the car. Both good!

Been hiking around Vipava Valley a lot lately and found some sikk new lines, but this one here is pure dynamite! Compression intro into techy, a little spicy top out. Amazing quality of rock, striking line and nice setting, that's ''Kowkberg''

Week ago I found this boulder hiking up Kovk in mist and rain, so yesterday when weather finally cleared out I went up there again with Nejc Peljahn. We build a little landing zone and brush it all up. Couple of hours later new bloc was born.

Bad weather lately. Snow, rain and wet rock generally means lack of updates. So until we start with something new and fresh check this little blog Katja Vidmar wrote for Moon Climbing about our Utah trip. Enjoy!

New year started and we are BOOM straight back in the mix. On very first day of the year we drived on deserted roads up to Oplotnica. Cold day out, but I manage to climbed this very cool compression called ''Power Station''. Yesterday I hiked up in snow to Kovk and brushed this cool compression line I found couple of weeks back. Still need some work on landing zone before it will be fully climbable, but it's great new project. Now we just need some dry weather again...

This is one of the best slabs I ever done everywhere. Just another testament of quality and variety which bouldering on Pohorje offers. Then we moved down to ''2 Poki'', great compression boulder on two parallel cracks. We did stand start but we couldn't stick the first move. One for the next visit. Amazing granite and some world class blocs all around this forest.
Platofukič (Slabfucker) amazing slab with spicy last move
2 poki (2 cracks), hard first move into compression top out
