Tunneling: A new form of Rock Climbing
After being at Barcelona for a week or two, Brett OBrien found a really neat rock climbing gym that a couple of us bought one month memberships to. The rock climbing gym, CLIMBAT was really neat, but the price keep me from paying a 3 month membership. I was talking with Jeremy a graduate student from Texas A&M and he recommend and invited me along to this public rock climbing area up and around the corner on Montjuic. Last friday I went with Jeremy and Christina from Texas A&M up to Montjuic to check it out. There were a good number of people rock climbing, Tunneling (bouldering) and learning how to climb. The place consist mainly of a road above with a tunnel underneath connecting two different athletic areas with rock cliffs on both sides of the road. Some areas of the cliffs have been sprayed with Shot-Cret to stabilize them I am guessing. This is an area that I will definitely have to take advantage of again, since it is free fun in BCN. Barcelona does a great job in providing something for every interest.
