And Another One

People been saying that there's no new blocs around here any more. Well I would say that you obviously don't hike enough. Fresh new one from yesterday, first ascent of Hesperus.

Yukon

Been walking past this striking arête above Soča river for years. On Saturday water level was low enough to give it a try. First I build the landing zone out of some river logs, then checked moves on a rope and finally commit. It's one of the best lines I ever put up on a very exposed and dramatic location. Named after our husky dog who passed away couple of years back...

CHA POW

Fresh from Podrta Gora!
Went up on Saturday with Katja Vidmar and Mr. Truffe. Everything looked pretty wet, but we hiked higher up and we find some dry rocks. Not only that, we even put up a great new compression boulder. CHA POW, first ascent
great rock and nice moves
CHA POW,
 40 minutes up the hill I guess it wont see many repeats
 Mr. Truffe was also part of the team
 hiked again on Sunday, but no luck this time, it was all wet and Podrta gora was stuck in giant white cloud
