June 2024

We had a chance to speak with Ulric Rousseau, our friend and the organizer of the Psicobloc Open Series climbing competition, which is being held for the first time in Istria, specifically in Umag, Croatia, from October 4th to 6th 2024. Congratulations on the upcoming Psicobloc competition. Could you explain what Psicobloc is and outline the competition format? How old must the competitors be? How hard

The weather in May was far from great, with frequent rain unusual for this time of year. For instance, almost all the tufas in Istria are wet at the moment and there's now a lake beneath the cave of Osp. However, high motivation can overcome any climbing conditions. This was proven by young Samo Golob, who reached his personal best by climbing Konec Mira (8c/c+)
