In the final episode of La Isla Bonita the filmmakers are taking you back to basics and showing exactly what goes into creating and protecting the routes that we all love to watch people climb. That's right: they are giving you a behind the scenes look at the passion and pain of the route bolter - the guy who climbs up with drill and hammer and tries to envision how climbers might one day want to move over the blank rock.
We're heading to a new section of crag in Majorca where Jozua Janssen and Javier Marin are hard at work drilling and hammering what they hope will one day be classic routes to add to the island's already legendary reputation for climbing. It's slow and tedious work, but it's definitely worth it.
