The Guadalest Valley has some of Spain's best adventure climbing. There is also easy access to many well developed sports (bolted) crags such as Guadalest which is now one of the best mid grade crags in the Costa Blanca, contact us for a free topo, but be sure to donate to the bolt fund at the Guadalest climbing hut!. Just a few minutes walk from the house are the recently developed El Flare routes with around 95 sport and trad routes. Also close by are the new and spectacular routes at Serella, and Abdet Pinnacle. Be sure to check out our free PDF topos.
The Puig Campana which boasts classic mountain routes of all grades is only 40 minutes drive away. The crags around Sax and Alcoy are all within one hours drive. In fact just about all the venues featured in the Costa Blanca Rockfax central area are within 60 minutes drive time. There is also an amazing Via Ferrata - guide coming soon.
Climbing is possible all year, even on the mountain crags. In summer, although the heat around midday can be fierce, climbing on North facing crags is very pleasant as the humidity is usually very low. It's also possible to climb morning and evening even on South facing crags. Midday can be spent at one of the fantastic local pools or you could even do one of the classic local canyon trips .
