Climbs at this crag
Come off the Murcia -Caravaca dual carriageway at the Mula exit (no 17)and at the roundabout which accesses the industrial estate go back underneath the carriageway, Immediately take a road next to the slip road coming down from the dual carriageway (signposted Embalse). After passing a large complex of solar panels, and at the highest point on the road, take a dirt track on the right which goes underneath the dual carriageway. Follow the track until you come to a left fork/ Follow this up hill until you eventually reach the summit plateau. There is an obvious parking area on the left underneath a single pine tree. A footpath leads in 20 seconds to the cliff edge. Easy descents lead to Sector Abuelo on your right and sector Ferrari on your left. Due to the popularity of the crag the forestry track has deteriorated somewhat during the last couple of years. Vehicles with a high clearance should have no problem but with a small hired car it might be advisable to park at the left fork and walk up to the crag (20mts).
On your right, a short distance up the embalse (dam)road, is a newly excavated Roman villa which was opened to the public in Dec 2010 and is well worth stopping to have a look at.
