climbs Martin Krpan 9a
in Mišja Peč, Slovenia.
On 26th Feburary Lukasz Dudek led a classic line Martin Krpan 9a. Originally the route was done by Jure Goloba in 2001. It was an exceptional event in Polish climbing: that was the first time a Polish climber did a 9a route abroad. The systematic increase of Lukasz's level and ease with which he led the route show that it's been only the first step in his adventure with the 9th grade.
Martin Krpan is a combination of two lines: Strelovod 8c and Konec Mira 8c/c+. The latter one Lukasz led at the end of January 2009. The success is especially impressive due to the fact that it was achieved really fast - after only six days of attempts. It's hard to imagine a better opening of the season 2009 for Lukasz.
Apart from the Slovenian classics Martin Krpan 9a and Konec Mira 8c/c+, in January 2009 Lukasz did also Alien Carnage 8c+ in the French area Castillon and two 8c in Spain, Atizol in Margalef and Pintoretta in Sella.
