After 24hrs on the ferry, and an overnight stop in the car park of a wildlife park near Santander (complete with elephants! ) we woke to dazzling sunshine and a light frost. Time to head to the crag!
We decided to get a few km under the belt whilst it warmed up 400km actually ) and got to Morata de Jalon near Zaragoza by early afternoon. After a bit of an adventure on tiny farm tracks we finally found the crag. What a great spot
About 400 routes set alongside a meandering river – some just a minute from the car. A friendly group of Spanish Sunday climbers, but otherwise deserted.
The climbing is great – or at least the 4 routes we squeezed in. Generally sharp pockety rock with a broad range of grades. Definitely one to come back to.
Then back on the road for another 250km and a campsite near Valencia. Tucked up just 2 hours from the Costa Blanca with 4 routes under the belt and only 36hrs since leaving Portsmouth.
