/ Recommended climbing routes @ Alicante
I will be going to Alicante in November for some sport climbing! exciting times!
I am hoping some of you have been before and maybe have some route recommendation or some advice while hanging out there!
We climb around 6c/7a-ish grade if thats needed
looking forward to the responses!
Have you got a copy of the Rockfax or Levante guidebooks?
Cabezon d'Oro has loads to go at. As does Forada. Then there's Sella.
A little inland there's Alcoy and Cocentaina, both have loads of climbing with plenty of development in recent years.
At that time of year midweek will be fairly quiet at most crags, and weekends quite busy at the easy access venues.
I do have the Rockfax book and have been looking through it, thanks for the information.
do you have any recommendations on things to do in Benidorm or Alicante?
Sierra Helada is pretty handy if in Benidorm
Serra Helada (Serra Gelada) is really impressive! But, my impression was that anyone visiting in the expectation of finding "sport climbing" would be in for a bit of a shock! Isn't it mostly trad? Or are there lots of fully bolted climbs there too?
Topo for Serra Gelada is here, under "Premium Topos": http://www.compasswest.co.uk/topos/
There's a lot of everything there! There are plenty of lovely well bolted single pitch routes, as well as some relatively serious mountaineering routes. Last time I was out there we just did the former, however we're heading out again soon for some larger and more sparsely bolted stuff. It has the full range of options if you know where to look.
The Rockfax isn't bad. Read it, you will find what you want to know.
Just a tip 😊
