Czech republic team arrived in Osp last week. There is a big list of all the hard routes they have done. This year’s Lead World Cup winner in Briancon, Eliška Adamovska, did Mr. Big hand (8b+) and her nemesis Missing link (8b+) in Mišja peč. In the big cave of Osp she onsighted her first 8b, the marathon challenge of 55 meters in an enormous overhang called Bitka s stalaktiti (in English it means “the fight with the stalactites) and Troja (8a+).
In the same cave, Jachym Cink onsighted Helikopter v omaki (8b) and short and dynamic Baram Baram (8a). He also redpointed the powerfest Talk is cheap (8c) in Mišja peč. The same route was also done by his colleague Pep Šindel.
Another Czech republic team‘s member Štepan Potuček flashed Missing link (8b+), the 20 moves long power endurance testpiece on the right side of Mišja peč. As far as we know, this is the first flash of this route. His brother Simon Potuček succeeded in long Corrida (8c) in the central part of Mišja peč.
Young girls from Czech republic, Tereza Širučkova, Karolina Gendova and Lenka Slezakova, all clipped the chain of crimpy, technical and extremely polished Oktoberfest (8a), while Barča Bernardova ticked the Mišja peč‘s classic Samsara (8a).
Wow, just amazing, what a team! 🙂
In between all the young Czech republic team members in Mišja peč there were also some Slovenians. Jaka Šprah sent Gorenjski šnops (8b) and only 11 years old girl Tia Brnot Mrak fired her first 8b, Lahko noč Irena. Some call it soft 8b, some call it hard 8a+. Whatever, with 11 years it is for sure a big achievement and the hardest grade done ever by only 11 years Slovenian girl. Here is the link of her full ascent. Congrats to all!
From tomorrow on it should rain until Thursday mid-day. Let’s hope not too much, so the tufas remain dry.
