A short distance north of Petrer/Elda is this face of rock, ‘the tower of the raven', set high above the valley, with a black metal cross on its summit. This west facing cliff was the first to be developed in the area, initially climbed on back in the mid 1960s. The routes were re-equiped in 1994 and now the place is home to twenty excellent and well protected face climbs several of which are of a lower grade than is usual for ‘sport' cliffs. The routes are up to 30 metres in length, often of two pitches and are well bolted. The rock is generally less than vertical, and many of the routes finish on a true summit. The place well worth a day if you are in the area and climb at the appropriate grade.
