I'm back in Siegen after a good time in Siurana. I'm glad to be taking the Rambla sending experience home with me. I tried it last year and I wasn't lucky. This time it went better. It was a big challenge for me, to get the endurance and to be patient.

I don't like giving up when I know that I can do something. I needed to be very patient. Each time when I felt close and thought I would do it soon, something kept me from having good tries. Normally it's like that at least once or two times when I try something hard, but in La Rambla it was a bit crazy:

I cut my skin many times and with tape I couldn't fit into some holds or wasn't able to do my crux move. Sometimes my finger was swollen so I couldn't enter the crack in the beginning. I slipped off from humid holds several times.

For a few days the top part stayed wet after the rain. I usually like wind and low temperatures, but some days were extremely windy and cold.

Luckily during this trip there was only one warm day, but last year it was a way too hot . And I also ran out of climbing shoes, so I had to organize new ones… never happened before :-)
 
All that made it very exciting! It was a lot of fun climbing on it as well as having a good time with good people.  Thanks to everyone!

Now I go to finish another exciting project: Jung's Boulderhalle

The boulder gym my brother Markus and I will open soon in Siegen :)
