Cabezon de Oro Alicante, SPAIN
Climbs 61 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 778m a.s.l – Faces SW
Travelling north from Alicante, the first mountain of any significance is the broad hump of the Cabezon de Oro (1209m) away on the left-hand side. The mountain is most famous for the show caves of the Cuevas de Canalobre and, although the seaward side of the hill looks tame, the western face features extensive sheets of rock with many fine trad climbs. Accurate information has been difficult to come by although the locals have been exploring these hills for years. The ridge has three main areas of interest to climbers; on the left is the rocky ridge of the Pared de los Alcoyanos with its huge south west face, whilst the right is the twin-peaked top of the Peña de Alicante. This has an imposing west-facing wall with a collection of very impressive sport routes, and beyond this, the fine buttress of Espolón Paiju rising to the right-hand summit.
