There are a selection of old bolts here which are only 1cm long. They appear to be secluded to the far right hand end of the crag, any of these bolts have a slightly smaller head than normal and what looks like the remains of red paint on them. This doesn't affect the large majority of the routes here.
A small but pleasant crag in a remote-feeling setting, despite only being a short walk from the road. There are only a few climbs here, but, as a good percentage of them are in the lower grades and they are well-bolted, the crag is often quite busy. The routes are fairly steep for their given grades and there is some loose rock around, so a little care is required.
The crag has morning shade and is sheltered from north-easterly winds, making it a fair bet on blowy days. When hot it is a real sun-trap in the afternoons.
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 via Jalon, to Lliber. Go through Lliber and turn towards Gata de Gorges on the CV-748. Continue for about 4km to a bend in the trees and, opposite a large white house with a turret, is a concrete track that runs northwest (new picture sign of Escalade on main road). Follow this 2km until sign saying 460m to Font (at the old parking spot). Turn right here and go steeply uphill until the road flattens and park in a shady layby on right. Walk another 100m to an obvious track on right leading to the crag.
