Mene iščeš sonce za Katarino Kejžar

V soboto je Katarina uspela preplezati svojo drugo smer težavnosti 8b. O vzponu pa je povedala: ''Po dobrem mesecu "šutanja" v Miški ni bilo lepšega od plezanja bitenjskih platk v popolni samoti, tokrat celo brez družbe domačih modrasov. Smer "Mene iščeš, sonce?" sem probavala že lansko leto, pa so mi bili gibi tako težki, da sem jih le s težavo povezovala. Letos se je vse zdelo bistveno lažje in povsem nepričakovano me je Sonce tudi našlo. Verjetno prav zaradi neobremenjenosti in z veliko željo po lepih gibih, ki jih smer ponuja, sem se kar naenkrat znašla na vrhu. Smer je prava lepotica, ki od plezalca zahteva veliko tehničnega znanja, vzdržljivosti in močne prste. Plezanje je pravi užitek, zato se ne bi nič branila, če bi morala v njej pustiti kakšen poskus več :)'' Na sliki pleza Katarina Silent alarm 8a, prav tako v Bitnjah.
