Christmas and New Year’s holidays are here! In Istria the weather forecast looks very promising, just sun for the next week! Make a reservation for your accommodation soon!

Already now, in the last days, there were perfect conditions with sun, nice temps and full grip.

Young and seriously strong Italian Matteo Menardi returned to Osp and smashed another testpiece of the big cave of Osp, a 55 meters long endurance challenge Osapska pošast (8c).

Then Slovenian local, Boštjan Weingerl crushed the classic 30 meters long beast, Pikova dama (8b) in the central part of Mišja peč. Katarina Kejžar climbed a super short and bouldery Arci’s route called Romantische Strasse (8a) above the road of Napoleonica in Trieste.

Italian climber Davide Picco onsighted Corto (8a) in Mišja peč and Austrian rock climbing lady Barbara Raudner redpointed a fully steep beautiful line named Total extreme (8a) in the scenic Medveja.

That was just a start, more to come for sure! Happy New Year and see you on the rocks!
