Jesse Huey: Seeking out some type-one fun

May. 8th 2012

SCARPA athlete Jesse Huey recently checked in with this report:

By the end of the winter I was starting to feel like a grumpy old man. I was overworked and in the middle of planning an alpine trip to Patagonia with my friend Madeline Sorkin for the month of February. I couldn’t help but listen to my gut, which was telling me that I needed some good, old-fashioned, type one fun. Sport climbing – who doesn’t love a bubble gum sport-climbing trip! My mind quickly ran through the possibilities, and in about 10 seconds I was researching flights to Barcelona, Spain. Madeline was easily swayed and within a few days all our alpine focus turned into training for the overhanging limestone of Catalunya, Spain.
