If you are strong enough

If you are strong enough, even if it is warm and the conditions for climbing aren’t prime, hard routes can go down easily. Check the examples of Timotej Romšak and Mina Markovič climbing hard in Mišja peč and in the cave of Osp in the last days, right at the start of summer when the temperatures reached around 30 ˚C.

Only 15-16 years old Timotej Romšak climbed his first 8c, the mythical Talk is cheap in Mišja peč. Talk is cheap was first ascended by Uroš Perko in 1997, who grew up in the same city as Timotej, Kamnik. Maybe Perko’s Sanjski par extension (9a) is the next project for young gun Timotej?

In the big cave of Osp Mina Markovič executed once more. She did first female ascents in just a couple of tries of Leon (8b+) and Working class hero (8c). Now she is off trying something much harder. Fingers crossed that she redpoints it soon. 😊

The weather forecast looks like summer. So why not trying some deep water solo climbing in Istria?
