Nov 10 30

Yes, it’s still the Costa Baltic: yesterday, Monday, it rained all day so apart from a drive up the coast towards Gandia not a lot was achieved (we did learn however, the young ladies standing by the side of the road were actually selling their ‘charms’; I thought they were waiting for a bus)…..!

Today dawned overcast but at least it had stopped raining; unsure how long our luck would hold on the weather front we headed for Altea as the climbing was only 30 seconds from the car. Our plans were soon thwarted however, due to extensive building in the area, access was next to impossible, undeterred we changed tack and ended up at Toix West. A good days cragging was had in the end until around 3.30pm when we noticed Benidorm had vanished from view (this can only be a good thing in my book) a few minutes later we were forced from the crag; the rain had finally caught up with us, this gave us the perfect excuse to retreat to Calpe for a birthday beer or two……….

Yes, Paul did drink all the beer; honest.......

Where does this bloody route go; and what's all this blue stuff in this Rockfax topo, I've not seen any blue sky in Spain for days.........!
