From Pohorje to Maltatal

Lots of rain, lots of driving and searching for dry rock, new projects and new spots. From Pohorje granite to Vipava Valley fresh limestone blocs and sweet Maltatal gneiss. 
Summer time and climbing ain't easy!
 Blam Blam in Oplotnica, 
3 sessions in 3 weeks, battling with grease and getting close all the time but still no success...
 New Project on Orlowca
 And another one on Kowk
 Sick Maltatal gneiss

Greek Bloc

Last year I saw some pictures on instagram, when Blaž Mur found this overhang boulder which he called ''Greek Bloc''. It looked very interesting piece of stone and since then it was on the list of spots to visit. This Sunday Luka Frelih took me there and we had rather fruitful session. I climbed all existing lines and even add one of my own, direct version of ''Siga'' which I called ''Ares''. Luka had also successful day, when he succeed on his long term project ''Alfa Samec'', which I repeated soon after, although not until I worked out new method. Check this two first ascents in video bellow made by Luka!

Utah is probably my favourite place on earth to boulder besides Fontainebleau and Indian Creek is crown jewel of all places around there. I was lucky to be there this past winter and although I spend only couple of days there and sample just a tiny tiny piece of all bouldering that is there I'm pretty sure that in next few years is going to be next mayor destination. Watch video bellow and see for yourself!

Trnow Fresh

Spending some time back in Trnow lately and revisiting old sectors and trying some things I skipped in the past, thinking that are too hard or that I don't like climbing on them. More about that when time will come, but for now just few things I brushed, tried, climbed lately. 
On The Hunt
