Sick I was there for that, I have a similar video from the other side. Oliana is an amazing cliff and la dura dura look super hard. It's right in the middle of the cliff and climbs up a bullet hard white stone. 10 points if you can guess American shouting in the in the background.
There is a good chance that the route will go down in the next couple of days, cold weather is coming and Chris and Adam are back and tag teaming for the tittle.

Whatever, ya bunch of star fuchers! Hey Ben, how's your trip going? Is there anything good to do at Oliana in the mid twenties? Or is it just for super hardmen and idiots who want to dog their holiday away on one route?

Yep, think that video lasted only a few days on YouTube before being taken down - presumably for commercial reasons. Grade is thought to be 9b+, or a mere 38 in Aussie grades!!

Yeah the trip is going really well, lots of good weather and great climbing. I got a good day in climbing at oliana below 7a+ (25) but would struggle to fill 2 days before I had to start climbing 7b, 7c. There is a Stella 7a+ tufa route that is the start of many other hard routes, felt pretty weak lowering off a quarter of the way up the cliff.

On the other hand Santa Linya was a waste of time :(
5 shots on the 7a warm up and I still couldn't tick it. Left with my tail well and truly between my legs that day plus watching dani Andrada climbing 7c in socks was humbling.

So far the best crag I have been to is montsant, pocket heaven!!

Adam sent.. Today there is a new 'worlds hardest sport climb' and it weights in at 9b+ (5.15c). Dang.

Sounds like your trip is going pretty well mate. How's the weather? Does this seem like the right time of year to be there, or are you a bit limited as to where you can climb?

The weather has been spot on most of the time, tops of 15ish and lows of 3 or 4, kind of like winter in the blue mountains. Most of the best walls catch full sun from around mid day so summer arvo's would be out of the question. I was climbing in a tee shirt on Monday in the sun then by Wednesday the weather had changed and some really strong winds started. Down in Valencia now having a couple of rest days.

I hear the weather has been real crazy back at home, sure am glad I am missing that...
