Going, going Gozo, by Stevie Haston

  • (c) Inigo Taylor
    Few more days have passed in paradise, the flowers have gone Gozo. One is called Maltese everlasting, and is one of my favourites, yellow flowers, and dry matte looking grey foliage.

Cruella in the Underworld, by Stevie Haston

This route is called Cruella the cruel, damp conditions thwarted several repoint attempts,.. Today was so dry it went first time, but it was so painful because I have been doing too much. Pain is a bit weird, there is mental pain, and physical pain, , pain from being alive, pain from fail, so didn’t fail, tried damn hard, broke bits of holds, some how did a few campus moves on no gas. 

Put a few bolts in a new project which will join up with Cruella the Cruel , will be monster hard, for sure don’t have the right stuff this month, as I seem to have lost something. 

Cant believe how beau the UnderWorld was today, Simon popped down to visit Big X and Inigo who took some very nice photos.

 Some cliff are really so good they shine.

The Underworld is such a physical crag it is like something from an other era, it's more like Gladiator meets King Kong.
I wish I had the Underworld with me all the time but I guess I have it in a pocket of my mind. So threw a few more pennies for the Ferryman...

Sweet time to finish the day...with little Lilly climbing at the Black Slab, Kercem...

...she got to the top!

Climbing on Gozo/Malte, by Laurence Gouault.Haston

I had a great time climbing in Gozo, really missing it now I'm back in Ariège in the snow and freezing cold...
Stevie has done a great job, more than 110 new routes of Top quality from 5+ to 8b++...and it was great to go back to the Underworld.....looking forward to go back in the autumn....
It is a great destination for the winter, spring autumn...summer a bit hot but you can try DWS, you can climb in the sun or in the shade...enjoy some good coffee with a pastizzi....if you need a place to stay on Gozo here a nice farm...mention Stevie for a special rate....
