Domen Skofic with an impressive St. Léger ticklist

Domen Skofic has struck in the French climbing region of St. Léger. During his trip, the strong Slovenian climbed 17 routes between 8b and 8c+.

It has been 14 years since Domen Skofic first traveled to St. Léger with the Slovenian youth national team. The 29-year-old enthuses that it was amazing to rediscover the climbing mecca at the foot of Mont Ventoux after such a long time: “I didn’t realize at the time how huge this area is.”

Everything was new to me and so I set the rule of investing a maximum of six attempts into a route in order to be able to experience this place as comprehensively as possible.

The first two weeks it was pretty cold and rainy. The last two weeks of his climbing trip offered even better conditions. Below is an excerpt from Skofic's ticklist:

  • L'Enfumette 8c+
  • La ligne claire 8c+
  • Go green gringo 8c+
  • Le concept integrale 8c+ (knee pad)
  • The ideal chimerique 8c+ (knee pad)
  • Les petits chefs du neant 8c
  • La theory des cordes 8c
  • The concept 8b+
  • Rouquin cretin 8b+ 
  • Le mur des cyclopes 8b/b+ (onsight)
  • Abregenief 8b (onsight) 
  • Plus another 5 cool 8bs

The Saint Leger Solo Trip was unique and I'm starting to feel like a climber again
