Julija Kruder has done the first female ascent of The Weather Man, 8a+, at Cala Sa Nau Mallorca. Could this be the hardest DWS by a woman?

Regardless, she is super happy about it.

Julija recently finished 3rd, after Matilda Söderlund and Sasha Digiulian, at the Bilbao psicobloc competition, commenting that she was "too slow". Well, there's no time limit on rock, is there?

Meanwhile, brother Jernej, who won the men's category at that same psicobloc competition, has been struggling with less than ideal conditions while working Chris Sharma's Alasha, ~9a+, and putting up new routes like Animal magnetism, 8b+/c, and an extension to Weatherman weighing in around the 8b+ mark.

Unfortunately, Alasha is getting more and more wet. Jernej says he thinks he'd have to go there in the summer to stand a chance as the sun never really hits the wall in the autumn and that it's thus always wet...
