SAX


Also known as Cabreras, Sax is an impressive series of towers perched high on the hill above the historic maze of the town of the same name. There are two main climbing areas; the towers of the Peņas del Rey, which is the most popular area is, and the open wall of the Sector Cumbre higher up the hillside. Most of the climbing is slabby with the occasional bulging bit. The grade range is from quality 4s to technical 6b's and climbers operating in the 5+ to 6a range will not find a better crag in the Costa Blanca. Many of the pitches are long.
