Rampage at Mišja peč

In recent days, many climbers have succeeded in tackling numerous challenging routes at Mišja peč – marking a true rampage at the site.

The rampage began with Italian climber Stefano Carnati, who compiled an impressive ticklist at Mišja peč: an onsight ascent of the crimpy Oktoberfest (8a), a flash ascent of the chipped Marioneta (8b/b+), and redpoint ascents of the classic Missing link (8b+) and the bouldery and rarely repeated Matrix (8b).

Following suit, 17-year-old Slovakian climber Eliaš Kysela redpointed the most frequented 9a route at Mišja peč, the monstrous traverse in the right part of it known as Martin Krpan, as well as its shorter variation, Konec Mira (8c/c+).

A Spaniard currently residing in Italy, Alex Ventajas, also made a visit to Mišja peč, climbing long classics like Pikova dama (8b) and Kaj ti je deklica (8b+) both in just two attempts.

Meanwhile, Slovenian climber Jakob Šparovec achieved a new personal best by adding another 8c route to his climbing résumé, clipping the chains of the lengthy yet bouldery Corrida (8c).

Thumbs up to all the climbers!

We need to inform you about two important matters. There have been recent reports of break-ins into cars and vans parked at Mišja peč and Osp. The thieves are targeting money left inside vehicles, so it’s advisable to empty your vehicle and perhaps leave it unlocked as a precaution.

Additionally, there is a Peregrine Falcon nesting once again on the ledge atop Ponarejena želva (7b) in Mišja peč. Climbers have observed eggs in the nest, indicating that the route will likely be closed soon. Please refrain from touching or disturbing the eggs. Your cooperation and respect are greatly appreciated.

The weather forecast for the upcoming days is mixed, with a blend of sunshine, clouds, and rain. However, with high motivation, climbing will remain feasible all the time in rain-protected climbing areas. See you on the rocks!
