Life's been getting really exciting lately! The main thing right now is UNI! I am starting lectures on Monday and I expect it to be quite a big undertaking! It's surely going to keep me well busy! Anyway, I'm excited as hell! I've been meeting future collegues and actually went climbing with one of them several times (shout out to Luka :D).
I've been spending the last days of freedom going climbing quite a lot, I've been to Osp three times this week doing routes in the big wall, some hard single pitches and finally today the annual Memorial Janeza Jegliča - Johana, the big wall speed climbing comp.
Alright, first off, the comp didn't really work out as it did previous years - I didn't even reach the top of the 90 metre top rope in Magična Goba, the route we did (hardest pitch - 7c!). You can tell I got pumped out of my mind (I was close to the top though). I guess partially due to messing up some sequences on the route (only did it once this year - with Miha Jarm on Wednesday) and partially due to lack of sleep from the night out :( It all comes at a price!
I wasn't really feeling too good today, so I finished it off with some tries in some hard routes, but no success. I am getting REALLY upset about my climbing shoes, they are so shit and I badly need some new ones. I might actually not go climbing at all until I get hold of a new pair :P
The last three days out have been more about trying than sending! I have a new project in Osp, Osapski pajek is a classic 8c which I hope to do as soon as the cool temps arrive and the psyche will be up again! In the meantime, I satisfied the sending crave with the right varation of the route, called Matičkov svet 8b. That was on Thursday, it was a cool day out! Žiga Debevec and Miha Jarm are trying Karies 8b - we had a good session working our routes and getting some photos! Jarm is looking pretty good on it so hopefully it'll go down soon!
I'll let you know as soon as we get another day out in our favourite crags and something gets sent! I am really tired ATM so not feeling up to the blog thingie! Oh and yeah there's a comp next weekend, I am syked for some comps after a while :) hopefully we can all stay strong as hell, go climbing a lot and go out to socialize, oh and go to uni as well! I mean... who needs sleep anyway?
peace folks! thanks for reading!
