Frozen Wave

Trnow Fresh!
Found this incredible arête on the weekend! It looks and climbs like a giant frozen wave.
One of the most unique things ever!

Fish Out of Water

Extreme heat wave we are facing right now also means that river levels are low, so many boulders which are usually unclimbable are now possible. Yesterday I cleaned and climbed a new one in Hubelj area which I named ''Riba na Suhem'' (Fish out of water). Not that hard, but nice addition to ever growing circuit of blocs in Hubelj. Get on it while it's still out of water!

Vipavska Bela Fresh

Couple of summers back when Bela dried out for couple of months I envisioned that line on huge bloc under Stolp sector in Vipavska Bela. Kete Janez later put bolt on top and did it on top rope. With so many new boulders around we kinda forgot about it until last week. So yesterday I went there with Nejc Peljhan who join me for moral support and to fish me out of water in case of fall. I worked moves on rope and then thankfully did it first try!
