We were going to crush Papágora, 7b+ today.  I’d got my tripod and camera, even brushed my hair.., and it looked like a good omen, some kind sole had left their draws on it, but after a quick warm-up on Mariete De L’Ull Viu, 6a+ in cloud cover and wind, it was too cold.  Total brass monkey weather, so we decamp over to Emmanuelle in Arbolí which we saw was sunny on the drive up.  We suffered a little wind but at least it was sunny.  Complete change from Siurana’s Esperó Primavera.

We quickly send Eh, Manuel! 6c (very nice) and then we’re onto the main event, Trifástic Familiar, 7c to the right.  Some good beta from Claudio, there’s a layback crux early on, then good climbing till the crux at the 9th/10th bolt.

Trifastic Familiar, 7c

I clip the 10th, lower down and retry on a top-rope.  A nice little project this, but there are easier 7c around.  Claudio just misses the send, but should have it next time.

6c   7c   7c   7c
