Reunion, Recreation, Relocation.

Tuesday, November 18, 2008

Dani finished up in the UK on Friday, and we had a disgusting romantic reunion in Reus Airport. Dani's loving the fresh air and the sunshine, although is still coming to terms with the temperature of tent life.

For the last few days we've been climbing and exploring. On Saturday we went for a hike to a part of Montsant, a amazing conglomerate range not far from Siurana. The walk featured some exciting "Via Feratta" and grovelling along ledges to get to bigger ledges with great views.

Today we did a epic 6b (21) 85m three pitch route in Siurana, the first multipitch we've done here. It was super exposed as the whole crag was vertical, if not overhanging, with several sections of climbing in bottomless corners. Fun!

We were hoping to go to Morocco next, but further investigations suggested it was going to cost too much for the short amount of time we could stay. We only have the car for another two and a half weeks, so we've decided to leave Siurana on Wednesday, and explore more of Spain and Portugal.

I'll wrap this post up with some of the photos I've shot recently around Siurana, and some of the climbers I've been hanging out with.

I farted just as I took this photo, hence the expression on her face.
