There's a small climbing shop in Alicante that I've been to a couple of times. They'll have local Spanish language guide books at the very least. http://escaladaymas.com/index.php
There's also Sport O'95 in Calpe, although this was more a general sport shop selling climbing gear when I was last there. It may have changed. http://www.zero95.com/index.asp
and it seems doent have sella sector or penon de ifach ?
There is a very good bookshop in Calpe that carries a stock of all the local guides: http://www.libreria-europa-calpe.com/
The owner is helpful and knowledgeable. I'm guess he will have the new guide as soon as he can get stock - he had half a shelf full of the old one last year - I know cos he made me sign them all!
thank you chris
