PEÑA RUBIA


Not the most exciting crag in the guide but it has been quite popular in the past, and it does have some good climbing. Its main claim to fame is the proximity of the ‘Boreal' factory and the thought that so many famous climbers have tested their sponsored boots on these humble walls. There is a full grade range from 4s to 8s. Most of the harder routes only have short technical sections on steep bulges and pockets. The easier routes are more interesting, especially some of the longer ones in the Centre Sector. The whole crag is fully equipped with good lower-offs. Some of the routes have two pitches but in most cases you can run them together with a 60m rope.
