Crag features

San Bartolo sits just ten minutes from the surf capital town of Tarifa. With Africa a stones throw away, one foot in the Mediterranean the other in the Atlantic, this crag has a bit of everything, full range of grades and climbing types. From VS multi-pitch trad to pumpy 7b+ sport on molten sandstone.

The area is split into two crags really, with the upper (winter) area being mainly multi-pitch trad and a range of sport routes of all lengths and grades. Great area with awesome views.

The lower area is all sport with a massive range of grades (but all fairly pumpy) and awesome rock formations (make sure you head all the way up to "Mosaico").

The little shop by the small football pitch next to the parking usually stocks the guidebook.

Lots of bouldering in the area but not much within the crags. If you're visiting it's worth driving just 10 mins up the road to the newly developed bouldering area of "El Helachal". Not yet much info out there on this but the possibilities in this area are endless with some people referring to it as the new font.

Restricted Access

A sign at the start of the path to the lower cliffs, states that climbing in not permitted from March to August, but otherwise the path to lower Mosaico area was no problem.

The ban refers to nesting birds and erosion issues.
