Spain : Costa Blanca



Already a member? Login

The Costa Blanca is rightly regarded as one of the best destinations anywhere for winter sun climbing, with the benign climate and massive amount of rock available attracting visitors from all over the world. The thrill of a two-hour transition from the grey and grizzly winter of northern Europe to warmth and bright Spanish sunshine still takes some beating and many climbers now make a regular mid-winter exodus to head south for a much needed tonic. A decent climate is only part of the attraction; the variety, quality and extent of the climbing is the real draw. Cliffs available here vary from tiny roadside buttresses, to long multi-pitch full-day trad routes; from dramatic sea cliffs to super-steep sport climbing caves for the hardcore. There is simply something here for everyone, and this is especially true for the climber operating in the low-to-mid grades.

This book builds on the well-received, full-colour and highly-detailed format that we have developed and refined over many years. Since the last Rockfax to the Costa Blanca in 2005, we have revisited every crag and taken a new set of crag photos to create the most detailed and biggest photo-topos ever. These are supplemented with detailed route descriptions wherever appropriate. Approaches to all the crags have been checked, updated and have new, highly-detailed and accurate, maps.

A few crags have been moved to App-only coverage since the last edition of the guide – Sierra de Magdelena, Ibi, Alcoi, Segaria and Baranc de l’Avern. To replace these crags we have added some great new venues like Mula, Castellets, Bolulla, Abdet, Guadalest and Castellet de Calp. In addition to the new crags there are many new buttresses and new routes on the existing crags.
