Crag features

Set just above the dry riverbed and in a sheltered location facing South, this makes a good winter venue, especially so for chilly days or when the cloud is down on the hills. 

There is a good spread of grades from 3+ to 7b+ with most being in the 5+ / 6a range.

The base of the crag is a little overgrown (Nov 16) but it's all still easily accessible.

On the approach is a detailed topo on an information board (missing Dec 18).  Route length varies from about 10 - 16m. A small bouldering area looks interesting too, complete with glued on rock holds! As of early 2018, the detailed topo did not seem up to date  (gone Dec 2018) and was difficult to follow in some areas.  Extra routes have been added and the position of some of the names painted on the rock seemed at odds with the topo in some areas.   As of Dec 2018 some cute hand-sized stones with names and grades have been placed on the earlier routes.

Still over grown but climbable. Lots of rubbish and glass at the bottom of the crag!!    Dec 2018, the base of crag quite clean and tidy and easy access.

Approach notes

From the N-332 running through Gata de Gorgos, turn onto the CV-748 (signposted for Xalo & Lliber), follow this for 900m past a green painted house on right to a crossroads with Restaurante El Corral del Pato on corner, Turn left here and follow the narrow road uphill, after it swings sharply left, turn immediately right (narrow), parking is about 200m along here and on the left.

From the parking follow a promenade type walkway above the riverbed and head back towards the centre of town until steps lead down to the riverbed. The crag is about 100m away and will be obvious.

Climbs are listed from left to right

This isn't the best of crags but worthwhile if the mist is down in the mountains. It is quite sheltered and the routes are relatively short. The topo on the approach is useful but out of date and not entirely accurate as lines on the topo don't correspond very closely to names written on the rock. The given grades on the topo, as copied on this database should be taken with a pinch of salt and where we did manage to identify routes with any certainty seem to represent very 'old school' Spanish grading!
