Hey there people!  Happy Chinese new year to you all!  I hope everyone has had a blast so far. :)

Would you all forgive me if I say I have been a bit slow on the site because I decided to take a trip to Spain?  It was my first time there – and absolutely amazing.  My partner and I climbed in Montserrat and another area about an hour out of Barcelona and then went to Alicante to climb in the Costa Blanca area.

It was a bit chilly but the sun was out – that’s all that mattered. :)

Anyway, I am thinking of having a celebration due to the website almost being done (the programming part).  My programmer and designer is outstanding (Andreas).  And my way of celebrating is….CLIMBING!! yeeeeah!

Stay tuned – I am so stoked to be interviewing a local Las Vegas climber, Stephanie Forte (absolutely stellar woman), an amazing and brave mountaineer, Laura and the amazing Micku (crazy freestyle longboarder/skater).  I also have an interview with rising Australian pro-surfing star, Brittani Nicholl!

Thanks for reading! :)  Check out some Spain pics!

Stellar classic route on the Peñon de Ifache – route named, “Costa Blanca”, 6 pitches, 5.11 – amazing view and amazing fun!

Priceless view…
