/ Long Easy Multi-Pitches in the February Sun?
I've a week off in February and I'm looking to get out of Ireland for the week and getting some climbing done.
I'll be climbing with my partner who doesn't really like doing anything too difficult. She has been on multi-pitch sea cliffs up to VS with me but after an epic she decided the adventurous stuff wasn't for her.
So I'm looking for recommendation of any where that I might find some long easy routes (Severe and under) or even ridge climbs, if such a place exists.
I was thinking south of Spain. Looked at El Chorro but doesnt look like much easy stuff there (well that has starred routes).
Can anyone help me out as to where might be suitable?
Tafraoute and the surrounds. Alots of big easy multipitch trad
My partner is in the same boat. We went to Majorca last year and did Albahida (Gubia Normal) (4c) which was 8 good pitches and a lovely scramble to the top which we stayed roped up for.
Another classic was Espolón Central (4c) just outside benidorm. 12 pitches, good belays but a bit of a hike in and scree descent. Amazing climbing though.
Currently planning this years long easy multi pitch and it might be Croatia in April or Austria in august.
Have fun wherever you end up
Lots here in Costa Blanca. Bernia as mentioned is a great day out at an amenable grade. Here's info on a few others in the area: http://www.mountain-journeys.co.uk/ridge-traverses--easy-climbs.html
There is a Spanish guidebook available for some of the ridges: Crests y Aristas de la Comunidad Valenciana by Joan Crespo Sempere.
The Rockfax guide probably has enough to go at though.
Thanks for all the info guys!
