Cortez the Killer

He came dancing across the water
With his galleons and guns
Looking for the new world
In that palace in the sun.
 
 Neil Young - Cortez the Killer
Three weeks ago I ventured into obscure part of Soča river up in Trenta Valley. After short hike I came across this amazing arête. It was something, what I personally look every time when I go out hunting for new rocks. Tall, independent line on perfectly sculpted river rock. WOW! I was blown away!
Great intro compression moves
getting ready for another weekend up in the mountains
 
entering into no fall zone on ''Cortez the Killer'', one of my favourite and proudest first ascents

On the end I would like to thank Nejc Peljhan and Blaž Mur for bringing extra pads and trying to spot me. Katja Vidmar and Mr. Truffle for encouragement and to go out with me again and again through rough terrain and where almost nobody never goes. Also I would like to thank Moon Climbing for great crash pads and Five Ten Slovenija for HiAngles! Thank you all! 

Till next time!

Peace

Summer Fresh

Quiet times on AjdBloc, but just because I have been super busy with developing, searching, cleaning, trying, climbing...new stuff lately. Follow me on Instagram(click HERE) if you want to know all the latest and all the fresh!.
Revisited Trenta this weekend, after six or seven years and immediately cleaned and climbed few new boulders, ''Japhy Ryder'' on picture was one of them (located  behind the ''Električna Ovca''). Even in old places like Trenta potential for new blocs is still huge, if you are willing to put some time and effort into developing.
Big blog post with all new stuff and updates is coming once I finish few things I'm working on! 
Stay Tuned!!

Trnow Fresh

When you just thought that it would be hard to find another gem in Trnow Land, BOOM!
The prey I share, Fruit that I bear...Emerlads
first ascent of ''Emeralds'' V4 / 6B-7A or something like that

Marko Bratina was there to capture all on tape and then went and made flash second ascent! 

Directions: Park on middle parking (as you have to anyway!) then walk down to Tetris, Green Art area. Emerlads is big arete on right side of Green Art bloc, just next to Soča river.
