/ European sport climbing in the winter months
I'm trying to work out how to get a lot of climbing in when the winter arrives. Currently thinking about getting a camper van and heading for somewhere in the south of Spain, which I believe is mostly sport climbing.
Don't really have much more of a plan but it would be good to know some good areas, easy access, lots of routes in 6a - 7a range, where the campsites are open, good for meeting up with other climbers (I'll be on my own). I suppose good bouldering would be a bonus, and some trad climbing would be a huge bonus.
I will be on the look out for more "oranges" for next season. Have 2 booked already but more hand make light work!
Check out our webpage, I am asking 2 hours a day next year instead of 1.5 as before...

El chorro is a pretty good winter option. If you are going by van then it would be worth checking out Costa Blanca. In my experience winter sunshine in Chorro means shorts and t-shirt while in CB you might want to add a light top. Both of them sure as hell beat the UK in Jan/Feb.
Jan and Feb can be great, can be crap, certainly better than the UK!
Morgan I think if you check the sats Costa Blanca has better weather than El Chorro. Its higher than us and has the Atlantic fronts to deal with.
