Heres a look at some of the things we have been up to:
Day one at Sierra de Toix, a nice introduction by the sea with sunshine and warm rock... a different scene from scottish winter.
Simulating leading as a progression to Sport leading
Day two at Echo Valley, a busy section as everyone gets stuck into sport leading.
Lena on day three assisting me teaching traditional leading.
Stephen supervising Duncan traditional lead climbing, debating a gear placement.
Lunch time entertainment at Sierra de Toix TV; last year we watched planes drop water on the hill side below from this crag, as they tried to put out a natural fire. This year slightly more chilled watching parapenting above the crag.
Me and James experimenting with some new set up systems.
Trad and sport climbing at Alcalali, the local crag, we smuggly watched the heavy thunder showers on the other side of the valley.It has been a week of unsettled weather of which we have done very well to avoid most of the rain.
The forecast is looking good for the next week so we should get some more great climbing in. Day off tomorrow, some sunny sport climbing for the instructional staff and chance for the students to get a bit of practise in and some rest.
