Salinas

Alicante, SPAIN

Climbs 82 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 702m a.s.l – Faces all

Crag features
Salinas is a fine crag which is beautifully situated, superbly well-geared and has a good grade spread of high quality routes. What more could you ask for? Not much, but there are couple of minor problems. Firstly, the lower-offs on many of the routes have been placed too low which often robs you of a worthy last move, and secondly, many of the harder routes are chipped. The chipping isn't as blatant as elsewhere but it sometimes leaves you with a bit of a hollow experience, as you reach off a chipped pocket to clip the lower-off chains, half way through a hard move. Despite these reservations, the routes are mostly superb and sustained, following steep pockets and thin vertical walls. It shouldn't just be considered a hard crag since there are plenty of superb easier challenges on Sector Picara Viborita and on the edges of the higher sectors.

Beware of the approach description given in Rockfax - it appears to be out of date. There is a roundabout as you leave the town - bear leftish. The turn off from the main road is signposted 'Los Fontaros'. Follow the description past the houses, but at the fork (100yds past the houses bear right - not left. Or leave you car there - the oil trail on the track indicates that someone did some damage to their undercarriage !
