‘Roca Verde’ is designed to publicise one of the best-kept secrets in European climbing; the fantastic sport climbing in and around the ‘Cordillera Cantabrica’ mountain range in north-west Spain. In ‘Roca Verde’ we have selected the best crags in Asturias, Cantabria and Leon, to create a guide which incorporates the complementary areas most utilized by the regions’ climbers.

This is the second edition of the first dual language guide to any of these areas, it’s also the first guide ever to include the crags in the Desfiladero de La Hermida, and is currently the only sport climbing guide to Leon.

The updated Roca Verde contains over 50 selected venues, over 230 distinct sectors and 3410 routes. Just as importantly, it includes the information the locals know; how to choose the right venue for sun or shade, summer or winter and for whatever grade you climb.
