I am now back in the US after yet another amazing trip to Spain! This was my third time going to Spain this year and every time I go, I cannot wait to return again!
This past trip was relatively short but I was really happy with what I accomplished. To start, I went to Rodellar, Spain, for three climbing days.
I first went to Rodellar in 2009. Returning there feels like I am returning to a warm paradise. The whole ambiance is amazing – there are so many great limestone cliffs that just tease your eyes and beg to be climbed. There is a clear river flowing at the base of the cliffs, accompanied by a lush green landscape that surrounds the valley. Parallel to the beauty is the community in Rodellar – I am always so motivated by the Spanish Climbers’ friendliness and strength. The general “a muerte” effort inspires me to try my hardest while climbing, too.
