La Panocha

Climbs 98 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 500m a.s.l – Faces all

Crag features
Behind the typical Spanish city of Murcia is a long range of hills. The high point is the rocky ridge of the Cresta del Gallo - or the cocks-comb. At one end of this is the impressive tower of La Panocha, (the Corncob), the best climbing venue in the immediate area.

The area has a full spread of grades, with many fine face routes and a number of mini-summits to bag. Most of the routes are single pitches though the biggest of these are 40m long.

Quite loose in a lot of places and one side of the Panocha looks ready to head down the hillside!!!
valentinesbabe - 18/Feb/13
Sector Lennon is the crag to the right of La Panocha facing the car park. Two minutes approach
Pencarth - 04/Apr/11
Probably worth mentioning that around Xmas time, the sun doesn't get high enough in the sky to shine on the lower part of the South face and lower right of the west face of the main crag. Therefore not really a good destination at that time of year (although sector Paisaje Lunar gets the sun until around 4.30 and is sheltered)
