Oh, Margalef!

New year, new worries, but also more climbing.  To start it right, I have been campusing at the gym, or rather simulating, as well as pulling myself up on two fingers.  Otherwise, life is complicated, as usual, and as usual, climbing is there when there is not much else left.

Into thin air, below, redpointing Conxoirxa with the Gresca finish, 7b+ in Cabernet, one of the exceptional sectors at Margalef.  It bathed us in the sunshine the whole last w-end, offering incredible blue skies and summer temperatures.   These long routes take you on a journey into the air, into the rock-land, where only endurance and power gets things done.  Maybe this is a good enough preparation for the project?  Maybe not, but it is definitely an awesome way to spend a week-end after hard training.
