We stayed in Abdet knowing there was a smaller crag near by. We traveled around quite a lot to lots of bigger more well known areas with so called top 50 climbs, only to find my favourite area was the Abdet crag. Well bolted routes, no polish and not busy. Perfect couple of days climbing!

started at the jabali lower pinnacle which was ok; tried to move up to 'high buttress' but it is seriously overgrown. Then went off to 'main wall' which was much better, and super-easy to get to. will be back.

Nice climbing. No polish. Easy access.
hollybank - 11/Apr/11
Great routes, well bolted and lacking the polish that many areas of Spain have. Good range of routes and grades with more being developed all the time.
RiWiGe - 08/Mar/11
Some very interesting routes, well bolted and I'd love to have a beer with Tom to discuss the grades.

Great climbing for those in F5-6 grades. Rock very good, even the suspect stuff is solid. Until we met up with Tom we had Crag to ourselves, fabulous views, well bolted warm and sunny on 2nd Jan, what more can U ask for.

Nice climbing with shade available. Very well bolted and no polish with easy access. Say no more ! A quality venue well worth seeking out.

What a nice place to climb! Well bolted routes (lower off's you need to thread your rope), nice easy 10 minutes walk from Abdet, we only climbed on the Jabali pinacles, belay in the shade, next time main crag, loved it.......... Stu

Some great routes and excellant rock here - usually better than they look - but there is still a lot of brittle rock around and a little too much vegetation
Chris the Tall - 11/Feb/08
If you like good unpolished rock in quiet and unspoilt surroundings then this area is well worth a visit. There is a mix of sports and trad. I spend three days there just after x mas 06 and enjoyed long single pitch (up to 35 m)sports routes, and even completed a project with permission from the friendly 'local' Tom Phillips. I will be back again, bringing my rack to do some trad (proper!) climbing.

We stayed for a week in Abdet and spent a day climbing here but could easily have climbed for several more. Fantastic rock quality, lovely well bolted single pitch routes and an amazing setting. Well worth a visit.

Last week I visited these crags with two fellow climbers. We climbed on Jalbi upper and lower pillar, in the grades 4+ to 6a. My fellow climbers thought that the routes and quality of rock were superb.
