Pumpy

Yesterday we headed back up to the Montgo crag. As I was not so keen to get embroiled in another project here at the moment I decided to do the extension to a
7c+ I had done before. This 45m monster is called ......and weighs in at a pumpy 8a+. I had already previously os the 7c+ and tried to climb past the belay in a very very pumped state only to back off due to the dirty tufas and no chalk. Although this crag is probably has probably the best hard routes in the Costa Blanca no one ever climbs here for 3 reasons. It is a 45 minute up hill walk, there are no topos and the routes start at around 7c. That said it is amazing up there and well worth the effort and also contains probably the best 8a+ and the best 8c in the region.
Having already been on the 8a+ I just dogged up it, worked it, cleaned it then sent it. The redpoint crux at the top bolt is especially interesting and would be nails os even with chalk.


Low down and still on the on the steep 7c+ section of La Conquista De Mongolia 8a+




Anyway back to my Kitchen. Happy Christmas and Happy New Year all our thoughts are with Andy and all his family at this time.
