An early start for the long steep approach, but once we get there it’s so worth it.  The views are inspiring and the rock mostly top quality.

Roughly 4 years since I was last in this sector, the absence only to get more strength and level to be able to appreciate the incredible routes here.  Xavi and Jack open #37, 7a and Cris and I open Rata Arraconada, 7a.  Climbing without T-shirts but the rock is very cold, I miss an onsight on this difficult to read line.  40 minutes later with the sun on the rock, the rock temperature is no longer hurting our fingers and I onsight #37, 7a.

While the boys go and play on Montsantrrat, 7b+ (block start, no thanks!), I choose to open an aesthetic 7a+, La Terra Promesa.  It starts nice, and gets better and better.  There’s a couple of difficult moves, but it is all super nice.  I need to work the little roof-bulge crux, but 16 draws and 35mtrs later of solid climbing I’m pumped but very happy.  Cristina topropes, and I send it on the second go – a brilliant route.
