January 2022

Domen Škofic returned from his winter holidays in Catalonia (Spain), where he sent a remarkable number of hard routes in Santy Linya and Siurana. He visited Istria in the last days, more specific the wonderful crag of Medveja, hardcore sector Knezgrad. There he succeeded in the classic route called The Core (8c+) in just a couple of goes. The route was bolted by Andrea Polo

After his first 9a a couple of weeks ago, Halupca 1979 in the big cave of Osp, Matjaž Zorko continues his rampage over there. This time he did the rare ascent of Working Leon (8c), which consists of a start in Working class hero (8b+), hard crux of the route and a finish in Leon (8b). He also made a retro onsight of 55 meters

Looks like the new year of 2022 started just great for all the climbers in Istria. First snow in the inlands and then many sunny days attracted climbers from all over to get our climbing areas even crowded somewhere. It is hard to start what was climbed in the last days as there are so many hard sends from everywhere. The hardest route was climbed by Spaniard

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2022 to all of you climbers! We wish you a healthy and injury free year, full of prime conditions for climbing, with lots of fun. May it bring a bunch of hard onsights, flashes and redpoints. In Istria, Christmas and New Year passed with great conditions for climbing. Sun, clear skies and wind made it possible for many routes by many
