Aaron 8c by Duygu Haug

26 April 2021

Duygu Haug, who runs the Josito Camp in Geyik Bayiri with her husband Tobias, has done her second 8c Aaron, one year after a bicep surgery.

"It was a magical moment clipped the chain and the last year has passed through my eyes like a movie stripe at that moment. My torn biceps injury, 1-year break of climbing, trying to find another hobby to be happy, start crawling to climb well again and how patient I was, so on... I am proud of myself that I climb this miracle line today and I am thankful to my husband that he was always with me on this journey and bolted this amazing line." (c) David Kaszlikowski

How did Covid affect your climbing camp?
This season was really different from the other seasons. We didn’t expect to have a lot of guests this season because of the covid situation and travelling restrictions but it was the opposite. Most of the people stay in the camp since October from different countries. They are working and studying online living directly under the rocks. Most of the people have residence permission now in Turkey. Good to see for us that people became like a family here in these hard times
