Climbing on the Costa Blanca - free topos, accommodation information

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. Just a few minutes walk from the house are the recently developed El Flare routes with around 95 sport and trad routes. Also close by are the new and spectacular routes at Serella. The Guadalest bolted routes (also good for bouldering) are just 15 minutes away. Be sure to check out our free PDF topos. The Puig Campana which boasts classic mountain routes of all grades is only 40 minutes drive away. The crags around Sax and Alcoy are all within one hours drive. In fact just about all the venues featured in the Costa Blanca Rockfax guide are within 60 minutes drive time. There is also a Via Ferrata - guide coming soon.

Why Costa Blanca?

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 RockFax Costa Blanca 2005 guide It contains over 42 major venues including 11 which have never appeared in a Rockfax before. The book is in full colour throughout with a complete set of new photo-topos for every crag.
