Last year (2014) brought once again a lot of climbing and hiking, followed by my big trip to Rodellar, a small town with amazing climbing in Spain. Here are the photos of everything but the Spain trip, which I will post next time. Enjoy.

At the end of 2013 for my big vacation I made another trip out to the Red River Gorge, my favorite sport climbing destination on the US. As always we had a great time climbing on the awesome Kentucky sandstone! Can't wait to make it back to this special place. All anyone really cares about is photos right? Here are a bunch.
Rest days for me involved lots of hiking and photo taking.
Jaima on a route at Torrent Falls.
Gray's Arch, my favorite hike in the Gorge.

The trip wouldn't be complete without the old guy coming along, haha. Nick Trina probably power screaming his way through a route at Shady Lane.

For those that don't want to hike to the top, you can ride the chairlift.
