/ hot rock in spain?
I'm heading to Spain next week for a week of climbing. Hired a car and got accommodationetc sorted. Staying near/in finestrat.
Will be looking at climbing lower to mid grade climbs and maybe some of the ridges.
Looking for some top tips on where is good to climb, anything in particular I should take or anywhere (not climbing related) that is worth going to.
I have the rockfax guide (which is really good) but there is so much to choose from! I've also heard rumours that there may be via ferrata stuff there too?
Anyway thanks in advance.

Some great multipitch trad their too though it does lose the sun quickly so better for a hot day!
The via ferrata on the Ponoch is a great fun day out for climbers...!
On Cabezon d'Oro? Looks impressive!
The walk to the summit is very worthwhile, if you want to give your arms/skin a rest!
Thanks guys, some really useful info there. Fingers crossed for nice weather.
For the easier grades, Marin, Toix, Echo Valley 1.5 are all worth a look. Sella is very close to where you'll be staying but the easier stuff is generally polished to hell.
Toix (south facing side) dries very quickly after rain as does Marin.
The Bernia Ridge is an excellent day out. Most of it is about grade 2-3 scrambling but you need a rope for the abseils. There is one bolted section (20m) of around 4/4+ which can be aided if required. The Toix ridge is also fun. The hardest part is the the multi-pitch climb (up to 5/5+) to get on to the ridge. The ridge is just a scramble but with awesome views and crazy exposure.
