A small but pleasant crag in a remote-feeling setting, despite only being a short walk from the road. There are only a few climbs here, but, as a good percentage of them are in the lower grades and they are well-bolted, the crag is often quite busy. The routes are fairly steep for their given grades and there is some loose rock around, so a little care is required.
The crag has morning shade and is sheltered from north-easterly winds, making it a fair bet on blowy days. When hot it is a real sun-trap in the afternoons.
The best approach is from Benissa (N332 and/or AP-7 junction 63 depending on whether you are coming from Calp or the motorway). From here take either the CV-745 via Senija, or the CV-750 via Jalon, to Lliber. Go through Lliber and turn towards Gata de Gorges on the CV-748. Continue for about 4.5km to a bend in the trees and, opposite a large white house with a turret, is a track that runs northwest. Follow this as it bends right, then crosses a dry riverbed. Continue on bumpy concrete, keeping left at the only significant junction, to a point where a dirt track branches back hard right, there is parking for about three vehicles here. This is 2.1km from the road, and about 400m before the end of the track. Leave nothing in the car. Follow the track as it rises gently around into a dry valley, then climb up a couple of terraces and cross over to the base of the cliff.
