I start this post with the news that Ollie has returned from his latest 7 week road trip taking in the Ariege & Siurana as well as many smaller crags and bouldering sites across the Pyrenees (info coming soon). I’ve been to Tottenham & Islington as well as many small pubs littered across Northern London. Whilst were only a few hundred miles apart it seems like worlds.
It’s been go go go at Crashouts HQ. Since launch we’ve been reaching out to property owners in Spain and France. The response so has been very encouraging. We’ve got close to 50 properties with some great properties in the Costa Blanca and El Chorro, perfect for a winter escape. We decided that Kalymnos would be the next logical area to go into as the season is in full swimg its one of the most exciting climbing areas in Europe.
We’ve also added country maps to the France and Spain country pages, making it easier to search through the areas. Over the next couple of months we’re working on expanding the area information including more details on crags, galleries, and trip reports. Property owners will also have the chance to add a profile to give their property advertisements a personal touch.
My winter trip is now booked. I’ll be escaping the cold British winter and heading to El Chorro in the south of Spain. I’m going with my new climbing partner and I’m feeling motivated to spend all November training to get the most out of the trip. This will unfortunately mean cutting back on some of the staples in my life, namely beer and bacon. What we do for our sport eh?
