When Toni Arbones arrived in Suirana, there were only rocks and no paths. There were just 40 climbing routes, but he was deeply captivated by the texture and colors of the rocks. He felt like he had reached his dreamland. Every day, he climbed without keeping track of time and even ate flowers when he got hungry.
Gradually, he started developing new routes and establishing camping sites. Now, within a 10-minute walk in Suirana, there are 1,600 routes available. If you venture further, there are even more routes to explore. Suirana has become a renowned global climbing hub, attracting thousands of climbers every year.
He also searched for climbing destinations worldwide. A few years ago, he came to China and established routes there. People who saw his developed routes said, "TONI, your routes are amazing. You should come and develop this treasure land in China." TONI replied, "Why not?" As a result, in 2012 and 2013, Toni became the leader of Kalechishiyan's exploration team in China. Over the years, Toni has developed climbing routes in nine provinces of China, including Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Beijing, Chongqing, Sichuan, Guangxi, and Guizhou.
