Cragging at Marin - pockets, puddles and red dots

Ron and I had to drive to Alicante to pick Ian up from the airport in the evening so we took the opportunity to visit Marin sort of on the way! We found the rock on the lower grade multi-pitch routes a bit polished and certainly the rock on the harder routes seemed much better. Whilst the rock was dry, many of the pockets were filled with water and Ron even discovered a small pond at one of the belays.
At the bottom of the crag I found a moving, little red dot which, on closer examination, turned out to be some kind of bug. After a bit of googling it appears to be a predatory running mite!
