In the meantime I accepted invitation to become the chief coach of the Croatia youth sport climbing team. It will be hard to find free time for all the work I have to do on this position (specially because I allready work full time on another place) but since for many years in a row nobody have the idea what to do with all those talented Croatian kids, I decided to give a try. Hope we can make some progress in the next 4 years and steer all those young guns in the right direction.
Allready on my first climbing days after rest I felt that conditions are getting worse. Summer was just starting so I decided to take it easy with training and focus on exploring some new areas and lines which I had in my mind for long time.
It was good decision. I spent great summer with my family, found some new spots, bolted nice projects for the future days and gained lot of extra motivation. Now I can allready smell autumn in the air and I like it a lot. First fresh air after long and hot Dalmatian summer always reminds me on good climbing and cool weather. I have a hunch I will blog soon again...
