160 m MP in 15 min in Croatia  (2)

Click to Enlarge PictureThe Big Wall Speed Climbing in Paklenica started in 2000 where you should climb a 160 m 6c+ with five pitches as fast as possible. For safety reasons you must clip all bolts and no simul climbing.

Several celebs like Andrada, Mrazek and Lachat have taken part but local climbers have been pursuing the speed record quite aggressively, with the efforts culminating in 2014 - where 2 teams went below 16 minutes. The previous record was from 212 and 20.49.

Croatian "Hubers", as is the local nickname for brothers Jurica and Perica Levatic, managed to get the win after 3 month of intense big-wall-speed specific training, and set a new record of just 15 minutes and 16 seconds for the route.
