The big cave of Osp

The big Osp cave action

Last days the weather in Istria was quiet strange, from rain to sun, but all the time with still fresh temperatures.

The hardest redpoints were mainly done in now totally dry the big cave of Osp.

Luka Šorli fired his first 8b+ ever, the 55 meters long endurance testpiece Active discharge. The same route was climbed as well on the same day by Italian Enrico Cassol in just a couple of tries. The day before Enrico onsighted the first part of it, which deserves a grade of 8a.

Another Italian Gianmarco Visca redpointed another 55 meters long marathon route, this time Bitka s stalaktiti (8b). Their friend, young and strong Matteo Menardi showed some good climbing skills with onsighting Helihopter v omaki (8b). Well done, guys!

To get the better impression how the routes in the big cave of Osp look like, check this great Klemen Bečan’s video done by Luka Fonda and Nik Čebulec. Enjoy 😉
