Crag features

Mostly single pitch with a couple of multi-pitch routes. If you can get hold of the old photocopied Alfacar guide (possibly still available from one of the gear shops in Granada) then I'd recommend you do so, as it is far better than the new Andalucia book.

New info: A new Alfacar guidebook has been published and it's much better than the Munilla guide to Andalucia for this crag. I purchased mine in the Nivalis ski and mountain shop in Cenes de la Vega but I'm sure it will be available in other climbing shops in Granada such as the one on Plaza de la Romanilla. (John Marsland January 2010)

Lovely crag, good parking for smiler, lots of easier routes, some need a 70m rope. Nice cycling uphill.

The local mountain rescue have been busy putting up new routes on this crag according to local sources in Granada. Expect additional lines of bolts.
