A month in Spain really is not enough! I feel like I am just learning to sport climb again and it almost time to leave... I am becoming totally that we really need to two days for every one. There are simply too many routes to climb, too many places to visit, too many experiences not to be missed, and simply too much psych to be contained in one lifetime!

 

I had intended to only be in Terradets for a week. However, I soon became psyched on doing a particular route, and before I knew it two weeks had slipped past. Yet this route was still eluding me! It was high time to move on, and so this has just become another route on my list of routes to return to when I am stronger... Luckily, even though I did not end up with a tick, I do believe that trying this route served its purpose of getting me stronger and building my power-endurance more than any of the other long, pumper routes at Terradets would have done.

During the time I spent in Terradets I feel like the season changed from a beautiful, yet cold and crisp Spanish winter, to full blown spring. The temperatures soared and valleys became filled with blossoms! Now, I am in Siurana, sitting out thunderstorm and trying to be patient. Yet I cannot complain... it is the first rain I have seen for a month! I love Spain and wish my time here would never end!
