Best moments of year 2014

Here are some best moments of the last year.
Happy 2015!!
 Highlander in Oplotnica. One of the best I ever done anywhere! 
 
 Trip to Vale dell'Orco. So many cool boulders still waiting to be climbed! Definitely on the list to go back in 2015!
 Trip to Fontainebleau. Total failure in terms of success, but a great reminder how good Font actually is! Syked to go back in 2015!!
 
First ascent of Leftism in Trnow Styler. Instant classic!
 Holly Cow in Oplotnica. Amazing technical compression and definitly one of my best ascents in 2014!
 HiAngles!! My new favourite shoe of choice in the last year!
 Trnow Styler new sectors and boulders. Still so much to explore...
  
 Mr Truffe, our new family member :)

Desert Sandstone

Back from USA. 
It was amazing one month on the road, camping out in the desert, waking up with sunset. Simple life. Climb, eat and sleep. And tons of boulders. Everyday. 
Red rocks, Moe's Valley and Zion. 
Nevada and Utah.
Here are first batch of photos mostly taken with my phone. 
More will follow in next days and weeks.

El Dakota

But I have a vision for what I want climbing to be for me. I’m looking for solitude, adventure, good rock, big lines, first ascents, and wild places.
