Mina Markovic (left) and Janja Garnbret (right) made personal and national history in Catalunya, Spain yesterday. Markovic, the overall World Cup champ in both 2011 and 2012, has become the first Slovenian woman to climb 9a/5.14d with her send of La Fabela Pa La Enmienda. On her Instagram she says she is, “…Very pleased about the gift that Santa brought to me – new project, great line! 🙂 But, just few days after, I have already put it down. My first 9a is done!”
Following in Mina’s footsteps, 16-year-old Janja Garnbret flashed Rollito Sharma (8c/5.14b) while in Spain. Of both her and Mina’s sends Janja says, “Wow! What a day!! 😄 A huge success!!” Clearly the ladies of Slovenia are strong and psyched. Congrats to Mina and Janja!
