ABDET


Beyond Guadalest the new coach-road reverts to a more-usual narrow gauge as it winds up into the hills on its way over to Alcoi and the interior. There is a lot of rock up here, and as ever, much of it is undeveloped. Tom Phillips has adopted the Abdet area over a number of years and has done much to develop the climbing in this corner of Spain. Here is a small selection of what is on offer, check out his website for details of a lot more climbing in the local area, plus some useful accommodation www.abdet.com.ApproachFrom the coast, follow the CV-70 past Polop all the way to Guadalest (20km). Turn left and continue (still on the CV-70) for another 6.5 km to a right turn to Abdet. Drive down over the river. After 700m, a concrete track branches off left - this is the approach to the crag. 100m further round the bend is parking on the right-hand side of the road with room for few cars.
