Slovenia: Desni Slap at Vršič

Topping out a mixed variation to Desni Slap. I put up a (likely) first ascent, ground up and onsight, M7+. I had to pound pins on lead from some difficult stances in the roof.  I'm used to doing this type of climbing with bolts and fruitboots, but instead I had 4 cams, pitons, and double boots on for the day. Making this improbable line go required a great deal of up-and-down climbing, faith and effort.
Nik makes a foul face for foul conditions.
Aleš points to the days objective, huge waterice.
Erik leading a good pitch lower on the route.
Meanwhile Nik and Kurt did the central flow.
