Strong Steve Shines in Spain

Steve McClure has just returned from Spain with an impressive list of routes to his name. Climbing at Rodellar and Terradets, both a 3 hour drive from Barcelona, Steve climbed 21 routes at F8a or above on sight over 8 days – 13 8a´s, 5 8a+´s, 2 8b´s and an 8b/8b+! Also on the trip and on good form were Lucy Creamer who came close to flashing an 8a, even though she has not yet fully recovered from the finger injury that kept her out of the British Bouldering Championship earlier this year, and Chris Clemmow who on-sighted a couple of 8a´s in a day. Steve said that it was some of the best climbing he has ever done and will surely become very popular as more people get to hear about it. He has been enjoying a bit of time off work and making regular tips abroad of late, but although he rates this one as one of his best yet – ´It´s all coming together´ he said – he has one more trip to France in June, and then he has to go back to work and earn some money…. ;-(
