Approach notes

Access to the crags from "Bar das Grutas" (N 37° 15.034', W 08° 05.873') in Rocha de Pena.

Directions:

Follow signs to the centre of Loule ("centro") marked by a big roundabout with a fountain. Head for a large concrete pillar-like memorial from here. Turn left just before the memorial and pick up signs almost immediately for Salir and turn right (100m). Follow a very good road to Salir (far easier than the map would suggest). Skirt around Salir to the left - try to avoid going into the village itself as you will tend to end up back where you started - it's easiest to improvise around the outside of the village to the left and and pick up the road on the other side of the village. Follow the bends downhill to a sharp junction and turn left (towards Silves). After about 1km there is a sharp S bend - turn right immediately after this (signposted Rocha da Pena) and Left shortly after this (also signed). Straight on, all the way to the village, park at "Bar das Grutas", which sells beer, ice cream and (sometimes) topos. Walk up the hill left of the bar.
