AN ADVENTURE STORY

rock climbing on the Costa Blanca

Soak up some winter sunshine whilst exploring some of the best rock climbing the Costa Blanca has to offer.

 

Costa Blanca has long been a traditional Winter climbing venue. When our usual areas are soaking wet and freezing cold, then the Costa Blanca in usually still enjoying the warm Mediterranean sunshine. Renowned for its great limestone sport climbing, good variety of crags and often easy roadside locations. 

 

We particularly like the vast range of climbing on offer, from low to high grade sports climbs, long multi pitch sports routes, big trad climbs, ridge scrambling and even a spot of Via Ferrata.

SO WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?

Literally just beyond the sandy beaches is a different world to the one we think of when we picture Costa Blanca. One of soaring mountains, rocky ridges and accessible crags all nestled amongst the pine forests, wild rosemary and olive groves. 

 

The aim of this six day visit is quite simple, to explore as much of the climbing as we can. The broad plan will be to treat the week as a classic Winter Sun climbing week, searching out the best routes, the sunshine, and absorbing some of that laid back Spanish atmosphere.

 

Costa Blanca is renowned for it's 300 plus days of sunshine a year, however with all these trips the weather is the determining factor and may allow us to follow a broad plan or force us to to change. It’s always an adventure, but the key factors are that we stay safe, enjoy the week and cover as much rock as we can. We prefer to keep the plan very open to allow us to make decisions compatible to the conditions on the crag.
