Me (Elena) climbing in Cuenca under the December sun

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Me (Elena) climbing in Cuenca under the December sun

Amazing that you could climb in just a tank top in December! I think I even got a little bit of a sun tan :-) Fun day with great people that we finished in a great bakery store (La Antigua) eating well deserved pastries!

Me (Elena) onsighting my first 10c (6b) in Cuenca

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Me (Elena) onsighting my first 10c (6b) in Cuenca

First route of the day, first route in Cuenca....first 10c onsight ever, wasn´t I proud!! Great line following the dihedral to the roof, and then tricky traverse left under the roof and up to the chains 5/6 metres above...30 metres full of fun!

Chilling out and doing some sight seeing on a rain day

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Chilling out and doing some sight seeing on a rain day

Having planned 4 days to spend climbing routes on the Naranjo, we were greatly disappointed after two days when it started raining. Thankfully, in Spain there is always an old church or cathedral to visit in every small town and always lots of good food to eat. This picture is of a cathedral that marks the place of some historic battle between the Spanish and the Muslims many, many years ago. How beautiful Spain is!!

Battling the runout

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Battling the runout

We decided to climb one of the easiest and classic routes in the Naranjo. The South Face Direct which is a 6 pitch 5.8 that everyone said would be a walk in the park. This picture is me battling with pitch 5 on the South Face. Rated at 5.8, this pitch is well within my abilities, but as I found out (and not being very acquinted with that kind of limestone yet) there was not much gear available on the pitch. In this picture, having left at the belay the only piece of gear that could protect the upper part of the pitch, I am battling mental fatigue while running it out 40 feet to the belay on technical, slabby terrain.

Picu Urriello´s West Face

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Picu Urriello´s West Face

This is the full, in your face, view of the west face of the Naranjo Del Bulnes which is roughly half the height of El Cap. The little black dots are people climbing. Most of the routes are typically done in a day (not if you are not fast!) and offer a mix of free and aid climbing, but there are extreme routes that range from A4 to 5.13+.

Naranco de Bulnes or Picu Urriello

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Naranco de Bulnes or Picu Urriello

The Naranco Del Bulnes is the most important symbol of Spanish climbing. This tooth-like monolith offers some of the best alpine limestone in Spain. Many chapters of the history of Spanish climbing have been and are currently being written here, see the Pou Brothers article in Alpinist 11. It is hard to see, but at the base of the 500 meter west face is a refuge that serves as a base for the climbers attempting the Naranco.

Montserrat´s South Face sport climbing

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Montserrat´s South Face sport climbing

From what I have climbed, Montserrat sport climbing tends to be very technical, thin and balency, much like nubbin grubbin at Smith rock in Oregon.This picture is of me leading a bolted 5.10d in the sport climbing area (did not send it, but damn in was good! and sure it is still there waiting for me to come back :-)

Tim going for the A0 option high up on the Punsola Reniu

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Tim going for the A0 option high up on the Punsola Reniu

The last pitch of the Punsola Reniu on the Cavall Bernat (Montserrat) to the summit is spectacular. The pitch starts off with a 5.10d or A0 traverse with huge exposure to easier 5.9 climbing towards the top. As you can see, Tim is clearly opting for the A0 option as the 5.10d was friggin hard. Behind him is one of the most beautiful walls in Montserrat, the Pared Del Diables.

Tim squinting to find the bolts on the Punsola Reniu (Montserrat)

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Tim squinting to find the bolts on the Punsola Reniu (Montserrat)

This is a photo on Tim Lawrence leading the second pitch on the Punsola-Reniu route 5.10d A0 on Cavell Bernat. You can see in the picture the overhanging headwall on this beautiful spire where some parties use aid moves off bolts to finish the final 2 pitches of this 8 pitches climb.

Montserrat´s south side provides a variety of climbing areas from a forest filled with hundreds of 1 to 3 pitch spires to modern sport climbing cliffs. This photo is of Tim Lawrence topping out on one of the many small spires.

Montserrat North face

Average Rating = 5.00/5 Montserrat North face

Montserrat has some of the best conglomerate rock in the world. You might be asking what is conglomerate. Basically, it’s a whole bunch of boulders, rocks, pebbles of various types (granite, limestone, quartz, shale etc.) stuck together by petrified mud. Sounds weird, and is even weirder to climb. This picture is of a very small section of the north walls in Montserrat. Montserrat is divided in the north and south sections. The north side offers 8 to 10 pitch “old school” routes on beautiful conglomerate.

My first 10a ever outside on lead! Great route, great day in Red Rocks!

Average Rating = 0.00/5 My first 10a ever outside on lead! Great route, great day in Red Rocks!

Rob Javier from Boulder, CO took this picture of me leading my first 10a. Really nice route, with big holds and nice moves. Just a bit slabby at the end but clean fall otherwise.
