Abella de la Conca: new routes and video

07.08.2014 by Planetmountain

New sport climbs have been added and freed at Abella de la Conca in Spain by Klemen Becan Caroline Ciavaldini , Enzo Oddo, Kevin Aglae, Kevin Aglae, Jonas Schachtsneider, and James Pearson. The video by Francisco Taranto Jr.

This summer Caroline Ciavaldini , Enzo Oddo, Kevin Aglae, Klemen Bečan, and James Pearson gathered in Abella de la Conca, Spain, for a climbing festival. As Nicolas Durand explained earlier this year, this recently rediscovered area has amazing limestone and offers all year round climbing for all abilities. In one week the climbers did ten first ascents from 7b+ to 8c and bolted seven new 50m lines from 7a to 8c+. They also tried four projects (8c+/9a?) but for these, as Enzo Oddo puts it…they’ll have to come back!!
