So having only just arrived back in the UK after four months away working teaching rock climbing in Spain. It really pained me to survive the Welsh Winter. So I booked some flights so Simon, Lynne and I could get some more sport climbing done, it was either here or Scottish Winter Climbing. Given I am really loving the winter sun and hot rock climbing in the beautiful costa blanca at moment there was no real choice!
We are staying up in Moriara, and on the first day we climbed 6 routes to and collected 16 stars. We even managed a couple of 7a’s at Alcalali. The following day we headed up the Penon D’Ifach and climbed the awesome Costa Blanca, a 7 pitch 6c+ and one of the top 50 routes in the area. Then today we headed to the fantastic Sella and did a few routes up to 6b+. It seems we are a little tired today and so we only did 4 routes before we headed home to the Villa.
Anyway, been another great few days away, we have another tow days climbing before we are back to the rain again. However it has really driven home just how good Costa Blanca is for both the sub 6a climber and those who are operating in 6th/7th grades. I will definitely writes some longer pieces on getting the best out of Costa Blanca and can’t wait to run some rock climbing course out here this Autumn/Winter
