From the hot and sunny south coast we traveled up hill to the famed bouldering spot Albarracin, with good temps and wkd climbing we set of to test our skills and power on the blocks, i had with me a pair of speedsters from sportiva and was trying these out on the sandstone as well, i found out to my cost that wile very good in the steep for pulling not so good at edges.

So back in the van and headed north yet again we ended up at a little known crag just west of mont grony, With lisa flashing a 6a on toprope then pulling the rope and leading it all was set for a good few days i then onsighted a 7c up the steep and long wall cheacking my arms are up for the up and coming routes in Roddelar.
