About a week ago Domen Škofic made a first ascent of Andea Polo's route in Medveja with the name The End and proposed grade of 8c+. We have made a short interview with Domen about the route, his current life and plans for the future. Here you can see the full video of his first ascent of The End (8c+). Enjoy!
Hi Domen! First we have to give you congrats for the fast ascent of The Core (8c+) and first ascent of The End (8c+) in Medveja. How are you?
Thanks, I am great. Again I have time to enjoy rock climbing, so just top.

He visited Istria in the last days, more specific the wonderful crag of Medveja, hardcore sector Knezgrad. There he succeeded in the classic route called The Core (8c+) in just a couple of goes. The route was bolted by Andrea Polo and first ascended by Klemen Bečan back in 2011. It was first graded as 9a but after downgraded to 8c+. Adam Ondra onsighted it and even proposed a grade of 8c/c+.
