Barrots

Taking a recommendation from our good friends at Gold Coast Climbs – an excellent guide service for rock-climbers, Javilongo & myself head up to Barrots on this brilliant sunny day.  The approach is a good 60 minutes but the views, and the climbing are well worth it.  I warm up on the pumpy Planeta Pupazza, 6c which was very nice, then do the excellent 3rd pitch of El Monstruo Del Arbo-Ness, 7a though I hang on it, but wow… I’ll have to come back and do it in its entirety, 120mtrs, 4 pitches, 6b,6b+,7a,6b.  Javi tells me the 2nd pitch is a little chossy, but still worth doing.

El Monstruo Del Arbo-Ness, 7a

After the maestro opens La Senyal, 7c , I play on the wonderful Unnamed Route #16, 7a which was long and difficult.  There’s a block start, then some thin patches in the middle, but excellent stuff.  There’s enough time, though no stamina, for Ciclop, 6b on the lower tier.  First impressions: an excellent but hard-for-the-grade sector, as they say, “no te regala nada…”
