Dear Climbing Friends,
Where yesterday was a harsh day, today was the best day we had so far. Good weather conditions as in sunshine and a small breeze, which made the circumstances to climb in very pleasant.

Tomorrow we will have a welcome second day of rest. We already know what activities are provided by the Catalan Tourist Board and the Costa Daurada Tourism Board, but you will have to follow our adventures on this blog and our facebook.
Yet again thanks to Michaël and Eddie for the pictures of today
