climbing costa blanca

Climbing - Costa Blanca - The Guadalest Valley has some of Spain's best adventure climbing. There is also easy access to many well developed sports (bolted) crags such as Sella and Toix. The Guadalest bolted routes (also good for bouldering) are just 15 minutes away. The Puig Campana which boasts classic mountain routes of all grades is only 40 minutes drive away.

Climbing is possible all year, even on the mountain crags. In summer, although the heat around midday can be fierce, climbing on North facing crags is very pleasant as the humidity is usually very low. It's also possible to climb morning and evening even on South facing crags. Midday can be spent at one of the fantastic local pools or you could even do one of the classic local canyon trips .

There are several guide books to the area, the best being the Rock Fax Costa Blanca guide. Online topos are also available at www.compasswest.co.uk. Compass West run week long climbing courses and also offer guiding on an individual basis. They are by far the most experienced climbing school in the area.
