Before this last trip to Margalef, I went there in November to try Perfecto Mundo, but I found the upper part of the route wet, so I focused on the first part. @enrychris was there for @epictv_italia and filmed me on some unsuccessful and frustrating attempts on the wet rock, check out the link in my BIO for the full video!•••@thenorthface @lasportivagram @camp1889 @epictv @hrtholds @frictionlabs #neverstopexploring @fiammeoromoena #fiammeoro•#climb #climbing #steghisati #rockclimbing #klettern #escalade #bouldering #climbing_pictures_of_instagram
