Mid summer eve in Merikaarto

Had a splendid Mid summer eve in Merikaarto, Kolkki by slacklining some and climbing a bit more. Managed also to send magnificent, short but powerful boulder known as Antonin kasi A right from Senegal fast food of which Sami did a bit tougher sitstart two moves lower last autumn but forgot to give it a name. I bet that version will get couple of tries in next Vaasa visit.

Easy company

Had a short and relaxing trip to Hiidenkirnut in easy company of happy and merciless bullshitters which propably helped me in changing awhile plagued "almost but still not there yet" gear to sending mode by making FA to Rippe's old project in Planta baja stone left to the Uskon puute dyno. Easy Company 8A/7C+ is only two powerful moves on not so good holds and took two sessions this year and three last year.
The problem felt surely harder than linnuntie at the same block but maybe a tiny bit easier than ladamies, a boulder of similar character in Luohua, so we'll just have to wait for repeaters' opinions until we get a confirmation about the grade. A very nice problem anyway and a decent addition to already vast collection of quality problems in Rovaniemi.
