Crag features

Hard to do it justice.  Thousands of granite boiulders strewn over the high plateau of the Ssrra da Estrela.  Whilst quite a few (!) problems have been recorded in selected sectors there is just an enormous amount of exploring to do.

Bouders tend to be very rounded and very rough granite - some pretty highball,

Currently the Jingo Wobbly Guide seems to have the most comprehensive coverage of Sector Turbario, but the Carlos Simes guide has more detailed naming and covers a wider area - though there may well be more detailed local guides - so I've tried to meld the two.  Sector names are from both those guides.

 

Gets right nippy in winter!

Approach notes

From Covilha climb the wiggly windy road up into the mountains towards Penhas da Saude.  After about 7k from the town there is a sweeping bend L.  Park either on the R just before the bend (signposted 'Pedra da Urso' (for that sector) or on the L just after the bend (for Sector Turbaraeo)
