First trip to Albarracin

By Tom Newman
28, Jan, 2015

10 days of superb bouldering with a good tick list to go home with

I was pleasantly surprised on my first trip to Albarracin. We were there for a total of 10 days. In those 10 days, only one day provided us with a few clouds in the sky. Every other day was clear blue skies and 5-10 degrees, perfect. This made me especially smug when I heard the weather in font was garbage.

As for the climbing, it seemed to offer all styles from hueco style roofs to font technical mantles and slabs. The quality of the rock was fair and to top it all off, there has been a large clean up out there, so the place was a lot cleaner than I expected it to be.

I was able to tick off most the classics and get a few of them on camera. The first climb in the video is blurry as it was shot off an iphone.
