Palm Tops

After two excellent weeks at Novelda it was time to move down the road about 30 km to 'the big house' for the RockFax/UKC jolly.
As the team were arriving latish Saturday we got some staples in and started to explore the local area. It is very different to the Elda area, markedly warmer down here at sea-level and with palm trees everywhere.
The first days venue was Reconco, a bit breezy but excellent, many routes ticked. The keen team relocated to Penas Roges but we headed for home - no point in over doing things!
Wednesday: Dave Gregory arrived early after a 6:00 am flight, and we nipped up to Marin to do a couple of easy multi-pitch routes to open his account. It was pretty hot up there!
