New multi-pitch climb at Ospo


Aldo Michelini, Erik Svab, Laura Ortolani, Mauro Florit and Paolo Codia ahve made the first ascent of TRY (Just a little bit harder) at Ospo in Slovenia.

The route climbs the massive Ospo face, a wall which has few equals throughout the rest of Europe. A dozen or so routes climb past massive tufas up the overhang which in its 150m height overhangs up to 40m. Apart from the old aid routes which have been freed, new free climbs have been established ground-up, such as "TRY (Just a little bit harder)".

This latest addition was forged by Aldo Michelini, a mountain guide from Trieste, and Erik Svab with the help of Laura Ortolani, Mauro Florit and Paolo Codia. The route is located on the lef-thand side of the face and starts circa 10m to the left of the classic "Supernova" (7b+, 5 pitches) and shares the start of the single pitch Dance without sleeping (7a not recommended, bolted by unknown Austrian climbers). The first three pitches keep to the left of Supernova with which it shares one belay. All other pitches are wedged between this and the recent 6 -pitch 7c "Bora scura".

TRY (Just a little bit harder) is 6 pitches long and these break down as follows: 7b, 6c+, 7b+/7c, 7b, 6c, 7a. The climbing through the overhang is both pumpy and beautiful, and the first redpoint was carried out by Aldo Michelini. The route is beautiful and highly recommended and a great addition to the numerous other routes at Ospo.
