After a week of rain, followed by a week of cloudy super humid days, Taipan is finally dry enough for us to get a taste of it's awsome quality climbing without greasing off every other hold!

With only 3 climbing days left however conditions are arriving a bit to late for me to have any realistic chance on Groovetrain.
In the 3,5 weeks here so far this trip I'v yet to have a single redpoint attempt on the route (compared to 15 attempts 2 years ago) as it's either been wet, or just to humid and greasy to do more then a few moves in a row before slipping off.
(Those who have tried to boulder in Font in december might understand what I'm talking about). It's been a bit frustrating for sure, but the route isn't going anywhere, and weather and conditions this time of the year is always going to be a bit of a gamble. Sometimes you get lucky, other times you do not.
On the bright side, not trying Groovetrain opens up for trying all sorts of other things, and hopefully actually clipping some anchors these last few days :) In the photo Steini cleans up one of his mini projects, Venom 28/7c+, just as the sun finally makes an apparance on Taipan 2 days ago.

After seeing @simoncarter_onsight photo of this route on the cover of the 2013 edition Grampians guidebook, I just had to climb it.
As it is the second pitch to a route in a somewhat remote area, only has 3 bolts (in 15 meters) and no anchor (you have to downclimb to clean), it's a bit of an effort however.
Once up there tho it's well worth it. Never have I seen a roof prow with better moves and more exposure then this.
The move in the photo is obviously not the way I actually climbed it, but a funny go pro still either way.

Tok a few days off Taipan to hang out in the amazing features of Muline and check out the Lost World.
Steini sent one of his goals for the trip, the mega classic Eye of the Tiger, while I managed to slap my way up Space Odessey p2 and kneebar my way up The Flying Duck and Path of Yin.
All in all a good couple of days.

Photo is from the crux of The Flying Duck.

Fun times up in the wall trading belays on Naja p2 (30/8a+) with @dugmcc the last few days.
Ended up questing up past the last bolt through 10 meters of moss covered "jugs" for the (first?) top out of the second pitch when I finally got though the awkward, but awesome, compression crux. Once on the top I thougth for a second about jumping off, then thougth better of it and downclimbed ;)

"Perhaps the best wall in the world" the locals say. I am inclined to agree.

This guy, @joekinder, just did his first 9a+!! Congrats buddy, psyched for you!

In this totaly unrealated photo, (that is about to go to print in the new guidebook for Sogn og fjordane), Joe battles the final crux of the Sogndal test piece Stjerne i sikte (8a+) during our roadtrip of the norwegian west coast a few years back.

The last 3 weeks have gone by way too fast. It's been a great trip with a great crew and I'm sad to see it come to an end.
With snow and rain sabotaging the last weeks efforts somewhat, Yuji is, despite his efforts, leaving La Rambla with unfinished business once again.
Hopefully motivation remains high and time can be found for another attempt next winter! To be continued?
Thanks everyone for making this such a fun trip! See you out there somewhere :) @stonerideryuji @mateo_laporte @mika_totechinsky @brettlowell @alizee_dufraisse @dave_graham_ @annaliinalaitinen @jon_cardwell @dawoods89 @elinenaesheim @gerardrull @chris_sharma @dani_andrada_climb @maja_baja_jaja
