the road to Rodellar -the scenery makes you realize youre on the right way!

As the Bielsa tunnel was closed the drive from Toulouse to Rodellar became an epic! I'm glad we made it alive! Finally in Rodellar I finally felt the calm. I climbed into the night that day and finally felt at peace again. I mean, how can you be stressed in a place like this? 

After a few days of climbing my body finally said NO! I realized I had not taken a break for more than a few days since I started climbing again after my injury. All by sudden everything felt hard and every route was a struggle... I knew I needed to take a bigger brake but how is it possible when you are in Rodellar and then going to Mallorca? Anyway, I had to lower my ambitions and just do what I could -just climb anything!

The time in Rodellar was of course great as allways. Climbing, meeting friends, had a little gig at my friend Alex's place Dharma and did some moonlight skateboarding. Finally someone stole my board as I didn't lock it in that night. The skateboard was not a BIG loss but the fact that people steal from you makes me feel sad. I also hear (and it's happened to me aswell) about people loosing draws they left on projects, loosing ropes they stashed at the the bottom of the crag... ad to this all these crazy dogs eveywhere, people using the trails as a toilet. I suppose "freedom" has different defenitions..:(

playing the guinbri at bar "Dharma" in Rodellar. I felt kind of lonely without the rest of the band...

After a big week in Rodellar it was time to move. We are now in Mallorca and had my first day of climbing yesterday. As the heat is rising we might do more psicobloc (dws) than expected. Time and weather will tell...
