1. If you could only go to one area, what would it be?
Adršpach. I'm very happy there and I don't think I'd miss anything. :)
2. Which route "punished" you the most and which one was so good that it surprised you?
Well, generally I get punished in easy moral routes, practically nonstop. On the other hand, once there's some fixed belay, some chalk in the bag and some more force oriented, rather than technical moves I'm immediately much better at it.
3. What OS do you value the most?
Onsight or Death. Definitely something lighter on the sand where you don't want to fall, but I can't pull out anything specific. Memory optimism works! :)
4. Do you have a precise training plan, or do you stick to the motto "the best climbing training is climbing”?
"the best training for climbing is climbing"? I don't have one, I'm too old for that. Unfortunately, I have to subordinate my climbing to injuries that still bother me and also to work. So as much as I can, when I can. :)
5. What about your diet, rest, and compensatory exercise? What has worked well for you personally?
I'm becoming more and more aware that less is more, and that rest is not a bad thing. So I'm trying to get more rest, which I'm still learning. I don't have the patience for restdays, but they help. And from my own experience, when I've been bothered with some shackle or tendon issues, it's good to slow down but never stop. And address the issue, of course. As for diet, I don't really have one, I don't have the discipline.
6. Would you eventually like to try other climbing disciplines that you haven't tried much yet (races, multi-pitch climbing, winter mountains, etc.)?
Not really, I've tried pretty much everything of those climbing disciplines at my hobby level. :)
