Today I will be flying to Barcelona, Spain with 3Strings Media (Keith Ladzinski and Andy Mann) to film a video for Adidas. Spain boasts the highest concentration of difficult sport climbs in the world and is current home to several World-Renowned climbers, including American Chris Sharma and Spain-natives Dani Andrada, Ramon Julian-Puiblique, Edu Marin-Garcia, and many more! I plan on climbing first in Siurana, then in Oliana. In both areas there is a high concentration of challenging, beautiful routes that I am excited to try, ranging from crimpy faces to long tufa gems. Both areas are new to me so I cannot wait to experience them!


I cannot guarantee what type of projects I will be completing while there, but I certainly plan on challenging myself with some of these new hard climbs, and seeing what I am capable of- whether it will result in a project to set my long term goals towards and to return to – or whether I will just climb the difficult route(s) quickly, is hard to say. Regardless, this trip to Spain will signal my quest in accomplishing my next level.

I know that sending hard routes can be a process and a physical and mental journey. My next journey is beginning with this trip, and I will see what type of successes I am capable of in this time frame and what long-term projects I will have to return to. I am incredibly excited to be venturing onwards towards my next challenge: whatever that challenge may be!

I will be in Spain until March 21, at which point I will fly to Stockholm, Sweden, to compete in an invitation bouldering competition; “The Tierra Boulder Master.”

Adios Estados Unidos, regrasare en una mesa!
