At the end of September 2014 Pavel "Bača" Vrtík and Dušan "Stoupa" Janák climbed the north face of the Grandes Jorasses, the Alps, France-Italy border. They repeated a line called No Siesta with a four pitches variant to a Bonatti-Voucher line (because of a lack of ice). On the route they spent two nights and endured one snowstorm.
