Guadalest – juggy climbing


Over new years we headed south towards Alicante to get to enjoy the warmer climate and the magnificent climbing and hiking of the Costa Blanca region. As an excuse, a good one!, I also had as an objective to find a new hiking package for the Alicante region for my Swedish clients.

Coming to a new area and selecting the first sector is always difficult. As always we hadn’t done much research but I had seen a friend climbing in Guadalest on my Facebook-feed so I thought it might be a good place to start. And, oh yes, it was! As climber mainly looking for routes from 5+ to 7a this was the perfect place. Short approach, very interesting rock (wear helmet!), endless jugs and plenty of great routes. With an 80 meter rope we could do some very good 40+ meter pitches with the highlight for me being the on-sight I managed of the 3rd pitch of Directa i Au (6b+). Superb crux 60 meters off the deck!

UK Climbing has some great information about the area and about the climbs. Go and check out this area!
