Most amazing week of my life
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Scaling Bernia Ridge and then watching the sun rise over it each morning knowing we had been on top of it. The mixture of scrambling, abseiling and trekking made that day so exciting and special. However I also particularly enjoyed the canyoning and the setting was unlike anything I'd seen before!
What did you think of your group leader?
Jose and Jaime were faultless. Amazingly friendly, knowledgable and trust worthy. Jose knew climbing like the back of his hand and told of a lot of experience. As a climber myself it was great to be able to converse with him over how different the climbs are in Spain. Jaime knew everything and anything about the Spanish wilderness. His treks took us on a journey of history and he knew every plant and herb that grew in the valley. At night they became great friends and really helped me as I was the youngest and on my own! I will never be able to repay them for such an amazing experience.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
This trip is moderate/challenging and it lives up to this. In the spring/summer months climbs and treks can be made harder by the heat so make sure you are prepared for this. Also don't bring of eat too much food on the way, they feed you enough beautiful Spanish food to fill you for months!
Is there anything else you would like to add?
thank you again for such an incredible week. It opened my eyes to the world out there and I can't wait to travel with Exodus again soon. Special mention to the host family at El Trestellador Pension.
