One year on...

Oh my.

I can't believe it has been one year since I wrote a blog about moving to Bulgaria!

What a slacker!!!

TBH life just seems to get more and more busy by the day. Setting in the UK, Scarpa boot demos, house renovations and now I am starting to grow my hold distribution business with some exciting things coming online soon.

1 year in Bulgaria and it just gets better and better. As a well traveled friend John said recently after his visit "Best Country On The Planet". The fact that most restaurant menus start with around 20+ salads may have swayed his opinion a little.

If you are into something different, a little of the beaten track, a low cost holiday with great climbing and amazing food you can't go far wrong.

Last year I spent a little time climbing and bolting in Krushuna. With grades from 5-8a it is even a quite crag by Bulgarian standards. A little tourist mecca though due to the stunning waterfall formations on the walk in.



The falls continue from the parking for around half a kilometre to the base of the crag where the water source rises.


Route 11 has no name but is certainly a classic 8a. Some nice tufa formations and a complex loop of a crux makes for fun climbing.

Big thanks to Dancho (Dan French) for introducing us to Krushuna and taking some photos.

I will leave you with a little video from Krushuna.

Someone is working the route 11. Yesterday a lot of eqpnt on the wall. Compliments for the clear lines and the sense of esthetic of all the routes of this sector.
