Last line in big overhang

For a long time I haven't written anything but now I'm here with some good news. Today I finished the last line in the middle of our barrier, naming it Dropbox 8a. I've been trying it for long time and it was all just a matter of time. You start in Inbox which contains one very hard shoulder move(7b+) to a good hold. From here you have some technical move which you have to grab perfectly so you can continue to a very strange crossing move. You better don't fall from here, cuz you're already pretty high. After I went with Izi to pretty unknown but very beautiful place called Buncove skale. We were climbing up to 7b+ routes in gneis. Also this place is worth a visit.

Last man standing

Yesterday I finnaly sent a big project in the middle of our barrier. It was a long standing project, may be cuz of it's hight. It's around 6m high and it contains only 10 moves. The hardest thing for me was to stay on heel and than swing from it. So yesterday I felt strong, so I didn't have to swing and I left my body next to wall. There is still one strange move where I fell once, but now I put my foot correctly and I was on the good hold. After that there are few easy move to the top. It's one of the best lines here, so I hope that you will try it soon. It's nice and it's not limited at all. The name is Last man standing and the grade is around 8a+. May be a bit easier if you are tall.

Also Luka Lindič sent his first 7b+ named Minimal.

I will also write something about last World cup in Vail (USA) which didn't end up really good. I missed the semis cuz of stupid mistake, so I ended on 25th position.
