 I met Nacho and Talo last year as they emerged from sleeping in the front seats of a car in the layby by Pete's Eats. They were both covered head to toe in "f*ckin basstard meedgee" bites and swearing at the stupid British weather as it was too hot and muggy to get on the route. A day spent on Rainbow slab with them was a pleasure and it's great to see people from such an amazing climbing area so psyched for British routes. . Muy Bien Ignacio!

There's a really good 20m video of Steve Mac trying the 9a mentioned that's just come out. It's also a mini biopic of Steve too:
