Crag features

Alcalalí is an eastward extension of Murla, just west of its eponymous settlement. It faces south, and has been extensively developed since the last guide. It is now home to an excellent set of routes across the more accessible grades. It is often busy.

The crag faces due south and can get very hot because of its recessed position. It will seep after heavy rain and doesn't offer any shelter in the rain.

Routes 50 to 57 80m rope required!

Approach notes

The best approach is from Benissa (N332 and/or AP-7 junction 63 depending on whether you are coming from Calp or the motorway). From here take either the CV-745 via Senija, or the CV-750, towards Xaló/Jalon. Drive through here and on for 3km to the town of Alcalalí. At the T-junction in town turn left then immediately right (signed 'Murla'/'Orba'). Continue down here for about 1km until a large parking area on the bend (with 'No Entry' signs on either end!) Ignore these and park here. Walk along the road to the bend (there is room for 2-3 cars here - although it is usually full) and the crag is above.

A crag with some really excellent easier routes. It was good to meet up there with Pete Eccles who has been responsible for many of the routes and to climb a few with him. I look forward to trying some of his new routes at Murla on my next visit.
