Warm temperatures & hot flashes

The most famous route of the cave this year is Jurij Ravnik’s Helihopter v omaki. The 30 meters long, really steep and powerful 8b, that was freed last year by Klemen Bečan and later repeated by Lucas from Austria and Luka Zazvonil. This year already got repeats by Klemen Vodlan, British Tom Newbarry and last by strong Croatian Gianfranco Dušič. Link to his blog with nice pictures from the cave.
