In the last few weeks at Siurana I didn't end up focusing on the projects I had picked out as I kept getting distracted by the wealth of classics at every crag. Margalef is also nearby and was a popular destination for our crew due to the different style of climbing it offered. The steep pocket pulling conglomerate terrain felt a lot more like gym climbing and due to the pebbles everywhere you where able to put your feet almost anywhere. This style of climbing suited me much more than the reachy vertical crimp climbing at Siurana.

Soon i will be at St Leger where i am going to force myself to not get distracted and actually focus on projecting. This can be frustrating but I feel it is also the best way for me to improve from where i am currently at. Some young Aussie talent in the form of Will Bartlett from Tasmania will also be joining me so there should be no shortage of hard routes being crushed. Till then...
