Innsbruck

On the way back from the championship in Munich I decided to make a stop at Innsbruck. I had (probably) already everything I needed with me, so why not? :)

Unfortunately I had to stay there alone, because my visit was really unplanned and  spontaneous, but Innsbruck is great place to stay anyway . Being surrounded by lots of climbers and nice routes in Tivoli is a guarantee that you will never get bored! :)
My climbing partner in Innsbruck was Alex Khazanov, a young and really strong Israel climber. Even though he is a bouldering specialist, he was psyched to do a route or two every day too! (and he looked really solid and strong) Thank you for the company! ;)

I really enjoyed that three day stop on the way to Arco and I 'm now feeling refreshed and motivated for everything coming up!

Can't wait!

Bouldering Worldchampionship in Munich

This year main bouldering event of the year took a place at very nice Olympiapark in Munich. I have already nice memmories from competing there, the best one definetly from winning bouldering WC stage in 2011.
This year, I admit I didn't get there with goals high like this. I wanted just to enjoy boulders and climb well. Nothing else. 
After qualifications it didn't looked soo good. I had climbed quite bad and barely managed to do it trought the qualification round. Elimination was anyway crucial, from 77 to best 20, so every little detail was important.
Next day in semifinal round, I did better. With finishing 2 boulders (3attempts) I just missed finals for 1 try! By comming out and flash the first boulder (instead of falling from top) I would insure my place in the final. Thinking backward, selfbelief and trust that I can do this, was the bigest lack for not do it. Altrought, I was satisfied with my performance and most important of all, really enjoyed bouldering after a while!

Anyway it was special event with one of the most spectacular finals I have ever seen. Boulders were great and it was undecided who is going to get the title to last seconds!

At the end, Jule Wurm and Adam Ondra get well deserved gold and Slovenian Jernej Kruder finished 2nd after great climb! I was really really happy for him, due the all unlucky things taht he has passed trought this year. Congradulations! ;)

Kletterakademie Mitterdorf

I just LOVE spending days at this climbing center. There are always plenty of really nice hard(er) routes, great athmosphere and enery with super cool team! :)
And even, if we are all tired at the end of the day, it is hard to get us home... See you next time Mitterdorf! ;)

'Kanjonfest'

Kruder 'the organizer' :)
Our teammate Jernej Kruder organized a really nice climbing event at local crag. Routes, weather, people, energy ... Everything was just GREAT! :)

After first half of lead season …

I know I did not write for quite a while and first part of this year's lead season has already passed. It definitely didn't go as I aspect and want to, but still there were some 'bright' momments.
Top in semifinal in Imst
Chamonix ...
On the way ...
After first comp(s), I maybe thought that my physics are not on the level as they were, but later I have found out, that if I do everything right and climb as I should I am still on the very very top. On this remind me quite many climbs and tops, but unfortunaltey, non of those weren't in finals :(. There the story, so too much common for this year repeated once after another. Too many mistake, wrong route 'sequence' reading, indecision and little power taking mistakes, which sure, each after another took a bit puzzle and costs me a higher point in the route.
It is also true, that girls are strong this year, and the routes has changed into harder, more risky and 'interesting' way. But, I also believe, that my training and level is where it should be. But, just being good prepared is far from enough for good climb on the comp. It is just as base. Base, which this year I believe have, but am paying the cost on other side(s). Things, on which I was always saying, that I am working on, but it looks like I was not enough committed by them or just a bit slow at learning …

But, there is still more than a half of season is staying in front, so I know, I have a PERFECT base and if I want I can fight and change the way the things went till now.

Training week in Swiss

It is almost a 'tradition', that at the beginning of June with team we go to training trip across different gyms in Swiss. Well, this year we also add a perfect outdoor relaxing rest-day at Voralpsee and I am looking forward to come back!
Together with our Swiss friend and host Urs ...
This time we went in smal group, just 4 climbers and 2 coaches, so everyone have perfect opportunity to get out most of it. And, I think we did! :)
