Not far away, in the new sector of Istarske toplice, Carlo Giuliberti opened and climbed a new beautiful long and vertical line with a nice boulder in the top, now named “Their law” with proposed grade 8b.

Also in Mišja peč, Frenk Jensterle redpointed Gorenjski šnops (8b), while in sector above the village of Osp, young and strong Anja Šerbinek clipped the chains of Karies, one of the first 8b’s in Slovenia which is now considered more as an 8a+.

Today it’s raining a bit, but the weather report for the next days looks very nice. The sun and Easter holidays are on their way. 🙂
