After 7 years Jon Cardwell returns to Siurana & Oliana to get stuck into some Spanish sport climbing projects, these include La Rambla and Papichulo both 9a+. Find out how he got on... "It’s easy to summarize my feelings on returning to Spain. The first thoughts are climbing everyday ‘a muerte’, to the death, as they say. Which isn’t to say it’s a bad thing, yet a responsibility you acquire as soon as you set foot into crags like Oliana, Siurana, Margalef and dozens of others. The climbers here, both international and Spanish are fanaticos, they love every moment at the crags, and each try is as if it's their last; blood from the fingers and muscles fatiguing. The energy is infections, and its every bit as inviting as I remember it; my last visit to Spain was a daunting 7 years ago when I spent over 6 months at various areas, I still remember it like it was last season.”
