Heading gently north we stopped in at Bunol – another of the top 60 crags. … Bunol is most famed for the tomato festival when tens of thousands of people […]
Another good crag in a spectacular setting. Just a couple of dozen routes, but mostly 35m long and in a beautiful valley. Toasty too!
One of the finds of the trip, Cocentaina is an orange splash of highly featured rock on an otherwise grey hillside. Not much in the way of warm ups, but […]
We fancied exploring the hinterland around Alcoy for a few days – somewhere that had always seemed too long a drive for a day trip from the coast. We based […]
After waving everyone off towards flights back to Blighty, it was time to leave the coast and get back on the road. First stop was Bolulla – not the biggest […]
The Cabezon d’oro makes it into the top 60 crags in Donde Escalar, so we were overdue a visit. This impressive lump of rock dominates the skyline north of Alicante. […]
Another repeat visit, this time to Alcalali, prompted by a threat of showers. We still managed a bunch of fine routes before beer o’clock and a visit to the Laurel […]
Font d’Aixa looked just the job for a gentle introduction to bolted climbing for some of our younger members, and Lucy, James and Ewan showed the rest of us how […]
Out with the old, in with the new (some of which was even older!) Week 2 of sunrock kicked off with a great meal at El Secreto de Tomate, followed […]
A recent development on the back of Toix, we’d been tipped off about some soft touch grading. Three 7b onsights tells the story, but the quality of the climbing on […]
A big jolly team assembled at Echo 1.5 to enjoy the sunshine. Tucked in behind the Ponoch, the Echo crags enjoy stupendous views out over Pollop and onto Benidorm. At […]
A quick check of the forecast suggested heading south for the sun. Sure enough, it was cracking the flags at Sella.
Extended to 2 weeks to meet demand, the 2015 SunRock meet has arrived in Javea. A Swanky Villa – swankier now the heating is working, combined with great cooking, vast […]
Pinos is a smallish crag with a number of handy attributes. South facing, sunny, sheltered and 2 mins from the road. With rain forecast inland and to the north, an […]
Cracking the flags so headed for Gandia, but chose sector TopDeckio as somewhere we hadn’t been before. Good decision with a cooling breeze and unpolished rock, away from the crowds. […]
An inauspicious damp day at Alcalali wasn’t the ideal way to kick off the 2015 sunrock trip, but weary arrivals made it to the crag after 4am starts and at […]
A chilly but bright day could perhaps have been better spent resting – at least if the twinges in both our elbows are anything to go by!
Not the greatest crag in the world, but set in a gorgeous and remote feeling valley, font d’axia is well worth a visit. There’s even a topo on a sign […]
Mula lies just to the north of the Serra d’Espuna. Sector Ferrari, overlooking the motorway, has great steep routes on very featured rock. Probably the best route is a 6a+ […]
A rest day and damp weather. Why not suss out a crag? Pliego turns out to be possibly the worst crag in Spain. Couldn’t quite help ourselves from doing a […]
