Rock Climbing, Limestone Quarry, Feb 13th

I saw this old limestone quarry on some pictures and we went to check it out. Cool place with stunning views. We rigged a top rope at the highest wall and climbed some variations of the routes. The drilled channels from splitting the stone provided interesting vertical holds.

TRS, Xaqqa Valley, Jan 24th

Top rope solo session on a fairly windy Sunday morning in Xaqqa near Ghar Lapsi..  I tried a Micro traxion + GriGri on single rope setup, did not like it. Of course it is easier to switch to rappel, but a a lot of extra hassle on the way up with pulling the rope through the GriGri..

Freediving, Coral Lagoon, Malta, Jan 10th

We headed to the most northern tip of Malta and swam into Coral Lagoon, nicely sheltered from the wind and the waves. It’s a shallow spot but some nice little caverns and tunnels, and perfect for practicing static rock hugging.

Congost de Mont-Rebei, July 29th 2020

Hiking and kayaking in the amazingly beautiful canyon of Congost de Mont-Rebei. A place where you try to keep walking and paddling, but you can’t help stopping all the time to take in the stunning views.. It was a long drive from Barcelona but definitely worth it..

A casual 2 hour paddle on a rented board at the beach in Castelldefels south of Barcelona.. A nice workout, it’s been a few years since last time, but once I found my balance, I could power up a bit..

Kayaking, Castelldefels, July 22nd

Two hours of kayaking on a little rented sit-on-top along the beach in Castelldefels south of Barcelona. Some fun waves from a gentle breeze gave opportunities for small surfs close to shore. Decent workout under a strong sun.

Freediving, Stora Vika Kalkbrott, June 27th

Casual freediving with friends at Stora Vika in the former limestone quarry now turned lake. Warm water at the surface but a lot cooler below 10 meters. Had a minor incident (last clip), got tangled in the weighted buoy line, but sorted it quickly so no big deal. I’ll be back!
