I was lucky to witness one of the few proper low gravity days in the year. Conditions were perfect, sunny with a slight breeze which made even the polished, worn-out limestone feel sticky. It wasn't crowded, actually there was a bunch of people you'd know and that was it. Everybody was going hard at their projects: Domen Škofic impressively finished off his projects, Sanjski par 9a and Človek ne jezi se, 8c+. I've seen him cruise both routes and the guy is just on a different level! Good sending in your Spain trip mate! Kruder sent the long-ass Vizija, 8c which is impressive as well, he cruised it because he's really strong (only sometimes gets pumped). I was getting on the line next to it, Karizma 8b+ (a bloody hard one, too!) and made some good links which is psyching me up, I could definitely feel the progression and it will go down next time, I'm pretty happy cause I didn't feel too bad after a month of very little actual climbing. Jera Jelenc ticked Samsara and so did Jernej Vidmar, congrats to both! All in all it was so nice seeing people tick and there was a great vibe in the air. Thanks to everybody for the vibe and Luka, Sabina, Kruder and Aljaž for the company. Peace.
So relaxing after a few weeks spent in the cold foggy Ljubljana! I'm hoping for more days like this it's really all I need! Trying hard high above the deck in perfect weather... it's what makes us tick! Despite the psyche we all feel about the new climbing gym, Plezalni center, it will always remain only an imitation of the real thing. It's good to get a few days like this every now and then... if you're doing it all the time you don't even notice it but lacking it makes you appreciate it so much more when you finally get to do it :)
Peace out and have a good week everybody. Hope to see you all at the crag soon :)
