On Wednesday we decided to head for Aventador about an hours drive north; this proved a good choice, loads of 6’s all around 30m in length – it was still quite chilly and sun only shone periodically. We all managed 5 routes which equated to around 150m of tendon pulling, forearm pumping climbing; the rock was very sharp in places and Fiona’s ‘udder cream’ was much appreciated…… After a long day we went out for a meal in the evening although we did make a slight detour to the supermarket to stock up on Hagen-Das of the Belgium Chocolate and Strawberries and Cream variety; Keith wanted this as a starter but we managed to wrestle the two tubs off him and get them into the freezer until we returned from our meal out…!
Today we headed for Alcalali; steep, hard but finally some sun :-D This was to be a ‘last-day’ go for it; however I was completely buggered after yesterdays exertions; Keith however was in his element: Formally known as Keith ‘The Godfather’ Sanders, it’s now 6b Keith and as for The Barnsley Beast Mr Paul Hallos; there was no holding him back…! Paul and Pete and Keith managed 4 routes, I managed 3 but my arms are now another foot longer. We called it a day at 3.30 so we headed off for a last day beer in the nearby village.
