Fame - and Fortune?

Almost week now in Calpe and it has been great to be back, gorgeous weather, some good climbing and a lovely pad overlooking the town with a distant view of the Penon.
It has been pretty warm (22C) and many of the crags are remarkably busy, especially the ones with a good array of easy routes.
We have had a couple of trips out to photo the magnificent South Face of the Penon and were surprised to see it totally deserted.
We also called into the book-shop in Calpe looking for a guide to the Murcia area. Once he knew who I was the owner grabbed me and insisted I signed the Blanca guides he had on the shelf, apparently he sold seven copies in one day last week - maybe we can afford to stay out a bit longer.
