After one month and a half in Asia at a leisurely rate of 3 routes per day, James and Caroline awarded themselves a month's "fitness training" in Spain, to grow their forearms before their upcoming multi-pitch projects in April.
Caroline Reports about her first day at Oliana, Catalunya, Spain:
We arrived in Spain the day before yesterday in our new VW van, freshly transformed into a camper. Tired from the long drive the day before, cooked by the baking sun, and quite frankly, intimidated by the length of the cliff – we were not hoping for much!
I had spotted 'Fish eye' last year; I thought it was possible, but hard... to be truthful, I planned it to be my project for this month. So I set off slowly up the route yesterday morning to discover the methods.
Well, it seems that the endurance is not so bad after all!
