Easter in Maltatal

On Friday before the holidays confusing weather forecasts finally brought us to the decision to spend Easter in Maltatal. First time this year back to my project Petting with an alligator. I was pretty nerveus to try it again. But it went suprisingly well and now it's time to stop just trying and send it! I hope the conditions will stay good enough, because I don't know if I could wait 'till fall.

I usually go to Maltatal just for a day to try my project. But this time we climbed everything. Easy stuff for everybody, new problems, old ones we've tried before...everything!

Here are some pictures...

On Sunday I went to Hubelj for the first time this year and it's really different like G told me before. The river changed it's channel and new problems were found and some old ones are gone. I'm glad that Srce teme 7B stayed like it was because it's such a good line and I couldn't do it last summer. So I did this one and two new problems: Long Jackson 7B and Vajkl Jackson 7A.
It was a really cool day because I also did my first FA: Black Swan 6C. G found it but then I climbed it first. Here is the video of Srce teme and Black Swan:

Robanov kot & Dovžanova soteska

Training hard on plastic lately made last two days in rock really special. Last Thursday I joined Slovenia climbing team in Robanov kot. Small spot with some good lines in eastern part of our little country where I don't go very often. But this time we all came and Kruder who is a local there showed us around.

Yesterday I went to Dovžanova soteska with G, where David Stepanjan found new blocs in the river channel. Very cool and unique slopy problems. Here are some pictures:
