Our "rest" day included adventures such as hiking through the canyon, visiting quaint churches on the top of hills that were locked, scoping sectors not yet visited, and for myself, an epic getting lost on the way to La Pincenetta sector (ordinarily a 1hr 15min approach) and having no option but to swim down a canyon. Freezing and a bit scary!
|At least there was a nice sunset as I walked back soaking wet.|
You can see the Gran Boveda, one of the "big 3" killer Rodellar sectors in this pic.
Day three dawned overcast and the paving stones were wet outside the apartment. It had rained overnight. The tufas would continue to be wet. No problem though, as our sector for the day was the left side of Pince Sans Rire.

|It's a nice view across the canyon to Nuit De Temps sector. There's some 40m pitches here!|
That night there were some tired bodies in need of a rest day. However a day hike is on the cards. Some rest day!
Weather is clear and crisp for the next week. Things are just getting better and better. Stay tuned!
