Alex Johnson, Josh Levine, Nick Milburn and I  arrived in Rodellar, Spain after a 3 hour car ride from Barcelona. Rodellar has the best climbing I have ever experienced. Rodellar is in a huge canyon with many styles of climbing. There’s probably a tufa on almost every climb. One of the first areas we climbed in Rodellar was the Las Ventanas, a huge slightly over hanging wall with two arches to the right of  it, and on one of the arches was a climb called El Dolphin 13a ,a classic climb with a sweet body rest at the finish. Within the second week or so of being in Rodellar I started to get comfortable with the local methods of climbing, so me and Alex decided to try Welcome to Tijuana, a really cool 14b with a hard crux pretty much all the way up including an especially powerful beginning. I sent it within five or so try’s yelling very loudly at the top to get through the rest of the rout and Alex finished it soon after. I sent couple of other climbs while in Rodellar like Kings of Metal (one of the most tufa intensive climbs I have ever climbed), Gracias Fina a super fun climb, Welcome to Masone, and El Dolphin. The people in Rodellar were also excellent! We met many people from all around the world, every one of them were equally friendly and fun to hang out with.
