Tomas Mrazek frees Xaxid Hostel 9a+ at Misja Pec, Slovenia


Tomas Mrazek from the Czech Republic has made the first ascent of Xaxid Hostel 9a+ at Misja Pec, Slovenia

Czech climber Tomas Mrazek has celebrated his return to form after injury in the finest of styles by freeing a long-standing project at Misja Pec in Slovenia. Just the other day the 27 year old powerhouse managed to get to grips with 'Xaxid Hostel', a mammoth 45m stamina fest which runs parrallel to JSFK right in the middle of the crag. Mrazek, who in 2005 redpointed another Misja Pec testpiece 'Martin Krpan' 9a has has proposed 9a+ and will obviously be one to look out for at the Difficulty World Cup in his hometown in Brno this weekend.

Misja Pec, Slovenia
One of the finest crags not only in Slovenia but the whole of Europe, the horseshoe-shaped overhanging Misja Pec shot to fame in recent years for the sheer number and variety of routes on offer. Stamina tends to be the name of the game, but short bouldery routes can be found on the overhangs to the left and right. Most routes are well bolted but the run-outs tend to get longer the higher you climb. Misja Pec is located on the Slovenian/Italian border just next to the sleepy village Ospo and the magnificent homonymous crag which dominate the hamlet.
