Yesterday, We spent the day in a cute little "mountian" town called Omis. The place had castles, markets, a river, and lots and lots of limestone - mostly undeveloped! We noticed two big sectors of steep swells and caves with tufas and pockets that had not been developed...at all. The routes we did climb were fun and the scenery was almost impossible to beat! Dispite the rain, we were able to climb many pitches and i finished off the day with a very enjoyable solo and down climb before riding the bus back to Split. Heather had a very strong climbing day yesterday and it was fun to see her find her groove.
More poor weather today, but likely we'll get some climbing in today and tomorrow before another storm hits later this week. Heather and I may take the ferry to Italy on Thursday or Friday when Nathan, Cheri, and Christine head north to Germany.
Only one week left...
