Crag features

The Barranc de l'Avern is a deep-cut twisting ravine with a lot of exposed rock and a busy road running through it. If it wasn't for the road it would be an extremely pleasant location but even with this drawback it is still a worthwhile venue for middle grades climbers. The rock is good and the climbs tend to follow vertical walls with some featuring small overlaps. The gear is a bit old on some routes however there is some replacement going on.

If the main gorge is a bit too noisy for you the Sectors Deposit and Visera should suite; they have an idyllic setting in a secluded valley, hemmed in by the hills and are a complete contrast to the other cliffs here.

Most of the sectors face south and get plenty of sun. Although they are not exposed, it can be windy in the gorge however, this will have the benefit of drying the place out quickly if it has been raining. Sector la Visera may offer something to climb in light rain.

Approach notes

The gorge cuts east to west through the hills to the south of the town of Ontinyent, and is reached by following the ring road passing several impressive roundabouts. Take the CV-81 (signed Bocarient and Villena) for just less than a kilometre from the last roundabout to a parking place on the right immediately before the second bridge in the gorge. This is the parking for the Pared del Gegant and Cagallo de Gegant, and is also the start of the road that runs up to the Sectors del Deposit and Visera. See the relevant pages for specific approaches to each sector.
