Masters of stone crushing in Mišja peč

Nejc Solje and Jakob Puhar both achieved their personal bests by clipping the anchor of their first 8b, the endurance testpiece Pikova dama in Mišja peč. Pikova dama was bolted and first ascended by one of the pioneers of Mišja peč, Igor Kalan back in 1995. It is a fully natural line that goes thru the central part of Mišja peč and it is divided in first hard slabby part, good rest, endurance climbing on tufas and small edges to get to another good rest, which is followed by some powerful moves and a sketchy vertical finish on top of the wall. A true masterpiece!

Matjaž Zorko smashed the bouldery Eagles (8b) and a classic powerfest Mrtvaški ples (8b).

Jakob Bizjak did Ninja želva (8b+) in just three tries and also redpointed Človek ne jezi se extension (8c+). It should be mentioned that he did the second part first try, after doing the hard fingery first part which is graded 8c by itself.

On the female side, Tina Berčič climbed the beautiful first part of Chiquita (8a). A couple of hundred meters away, in Osp, in sector Babna, Maja Šuštar topped the amazing Zadnja skušnjava (8a).

Even a bit further away, in sunny Lijak next to Nova Gorica, Jaka Šprah fired probably the best route over there, named James Bond (8b).

The weather forecast for the weekend lokes so-so, tomorrow with some sun and clouds, and on Sunday it should rain a bit and get a bit chillier as well. But from Monday on, the sun will be back.

See you soon!
