The rocky citadel of Guadalest, besides being a very popular tourist destination was well known for the bouldering available there, but recently the extensive walls have been developed by the enthusiastic local climbers and now the area is one of the best climbing venues in the Costa Blanca with a wide selection of well protected routes across the grades, on a variety of walls. For climbers operating in the orange spot grade range - 5 to 6a+ - there is plenty to go at including some exceptional 2 and 3 pitch routes. These also offer a good oportunity for less experienced climbers to try their hand at multi-pitch routes before venturing onto the much bigger undertakings on places like the Penon and Puig Campana.There are also sectors suitable for beginners and top roping. It is only a short walk up to the historic with its bizzarre selection of museums as well as some good cafes.
The Rockfax 2013 has many of the routes in it, but you are best calling in at the climbers hut below the main sector to buy an up to date copy. Or login to an account on this site to get a copy, but please donate at Guadalest climbers refuge. It costs a lot of money to equip so many long routes!
