Ali, Nich & I have just had a brilliant 11 days in Calpe, Costa Blanca, with our families. And, of course, intensive climbing. A fabulous selection of sport and trad (my favourite) single and multipitch routes at all grades.
Ali’s brilliant coaching and selecting routes as our confidence grew. My personal highlights: the 10 Pitch HVS 5+ Diedro UBSA at the Peñon, and the five pitch Diedro Edwards E2 5c at Vall de Guadar (Echo Valley). Following the rather scary 5c crux which Ali led was a true testimony to her climbing skills and leadership.
Confidence boosted, skills increased, good fun with mates and family – what more could anyone ask for. Oh, of course, unrelenting sunshine and 24deg C!!!!! Thanks for a fun 11 days.
