Rainy Day and Glory for Blasco

Let's go cragging, oh it's raining....
Whilst the UK was enjoying the "Summer part 2", we had some end of summer thunderstorms...

So where to go?
Criteria: steep, dry in the rain, new and not too far.
Result =  Gaz Parry's Crag X - somewhere in the Costa Blanca ;)

Gaz has done a fantastic job in opening this new & "futuristic" crag with over 20 routes mostly high 7's up to uber projects.

Sergi approaching the crux sequence on "Luz del Sol" (hard) 7c.

In Spanish a climbing area/sector is often referred to as an "escuela", literally a school of climbing. The phrase of the day that repeatedly echoed around the crag was "no es una escuela, es una universidad"
This is no climbing school, it's an university! 

Roy starting up another 7c (7a up to the hard bit)

This place certainly fit the bill for the day, even if we all went home with an arse kickin...
Topos are likely be released later this year.

La cultura del miedo

Gnaro Productions have done a great piece featuring Blasco climbing the infamous 8a at L'ocaive. It captures the emotion, dedication & hard work Blasco put in to his long term project which he red pointed in August.
