In end of April I went to a small trip in Spain. I spent two weeks in Chulilla where I was first trying to onsight some harder routes and than I bolted a new 70m line in sector Balcon. It's amazing route and I hope many climbers will try it all the way to the top.

|Anty Gravity, 8b+, 70 meters high|
|1st pitch is 8a+|
|2nd is 8b|
For the rest day we went on a search for some new crags in Titaguas. Approach was not the easiest but we had a lot of fun finding new amazing rocks where we will bolt next time.
|New hot spot in Spain|
|Amazing rocks everywhere|
In Chulilla was getting too hot but I still managed to climb there and make one more route in the canyon. Heat and mosquitoes didn't bother Anja since she did her first 7c in the worst possible conditions.
|For me it was too hot to climb but Anja still did her first 7c|
|New route with a little different approach|
|Perfect qualiti of rock from opening bottoms up|
|Many new possibilities|
|Getting food is sometimes not so easy|
It was time to move to Abella de la Conca. One week of bolting and I managed to make a nice summer sector where you can hide from the crazy heat.
|One week of work for bolting, for climbing all the routes maybe a bit more|
Last week of my trip I went to France. On a EXPLOS film festival in Ax les Thermes where I was presenting my movie Bala Bala! Ardege is an amazing place with many different kind of climbing areas, caves and cool people. I don't know why I didn't visit this place before but I'm sure I'll be back soon. (here you can find the topos of most of the places)
