/ Winter sun climbing ideas please
My preferences are: A fair few routes that aren't too hard, sunshine, warmth, preferably some trad, preferably something other than limestone and preferably some big but not too hard routes. (not all essential)
Any advance on Costa Blanca?
France surely nearer/faster? Buis, Seynes/Russan, Buoux/Orgon, Chateauvert and so on could potentially offer good climbing conditions round that sort of time...? Mostly limestone and sport but a huge variety of lengths and difficulties, and all good quality climbing...!
heading there for Christmas. Where did you get the car hire from? lovely prices!
Yeh I'd like that car hire company too as we never get that cheap up here on Costa Blanca!
I was out in malta last week. It was too hot to climb, but we had a look at some of the crags and the rock looked immaculate.
Good food, cheap wine and friendly people too. Just don't ask about the driving.
I've been to Tenerife for the last 2 years, late December for a week, and always had a most excellent time! See the following UKC article for more info:
