Chris Atkinson and Marc Piche are hard at work on the newest edition of the Bugaboos Guidebook! Since the 2003 edition has gone out of print, the pair have released a mini-guide through High Col to keep up the psych until the new book is released.

Close to Victoria (15 minute drive), there is a new little bouldering wall dubbed the ‘Francis King’ Bouldering Wall. See Reagan Daly show us a few of the problems.
If the provinces of Spain would form a family of siblings, Catalunya would be considered the “gifted” one. The landscape is varied, abundant and beautiful in every way. And we’ve all seen the videos of Sharma and Ondra shouting on their latest “mega-projects” on picturesque, streaked limestone cliffs. It’s the coolest thing in sport climbing, and rightfully so. The list of areas known and unknown in Catalunya is massive, requiring two full sized “select” guide books co-authored by the one and only Dani Andrada. Flipping through the guides is almost torturous, your first thought (no matter how much time you’ve allotted for your trip) is “I need more time”. But if you’ve managed to make it, don’t fret, Spanish life is easy, tranquilo.
