Jon Cardwell checks in and tells us about climbing in Spain

"In the last couple weeks our crew out here has changed drastically.  Fellow climbers chad greedy and Nalle Hukkataival decided to take some time to fly down and climb in Spain.  There is a new psyche coming along with this new year.  We'll be set up here for another couple months to climb in the classic areas Oliana and Margalef.  A muerte everyday, a tough program!  We've been able to climb a few routes, one about a week ago stands out, a Markus Bock route in Oliana called Duele De Realidad 5.14c.  The route is short, about 15 meters, especially in comparison to the massive wall that is Oliana. The crux is more or less a hard boulder problem on few undercuts and a couple crimps ending with a jump to a massive jug, after its only about 12c to the top.  Nalle managed the 2nd ascent and a few days after, only after refining some ninja beta into something more straight forward I followed up with the 3rd.  The psyche is high and the plans are nice.  After Spain, we'll head to Ticino for some bouldering and I can certainly say I'm more than excited...  Its been a while!"
