At Cuevas del Mar, Asturias. © Rog Wilko

Crag features

Crag rises from the beach. Fantastic for groups / families where some want to climb and others do not. Some routes are tidal, some not.

At the south end there is an orange wall (Sector Cuevas). In front of and to the right of this a separate block of limestone hosts Sector Playa on its seaward side and Sector Occulto behind. Sector Mar is the continuation rightwards of Sector Cuevas. There is a bit of DWS on the sea arch but it needs a decent high tide. Most of the sea cliffs have underwater ledges below them, so explore new DWS with caution!

Approach notes

From the A8 junction west of Nueva take the AS-263 eastwards to the outskirts of the town. Fork left as you approach the built-up area, cross railway then take a left at the first crossroads. Follow this road down to the beach. Sometimes the car park by the beach is closed and you have to park on the road or in a field (2.5 Euro donation) and walk about 100m. The crag is on the west side of the bay.
