Tivissa is and unknown climbing area offering world class climbs, both trad and sport, located only 90 miles S of Barcelona (Catalonia), and 12 miles inland from the Mediterranean sea. There are nearly 500 routes and more developments are being carried on. The new, updated guidebook will be avilable before summer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Limestone area, many different formations of all aspects (climbing confortable year round). Footwork is essential, and handholds are dropplets and crimps with some jugholds and a good dose of crack climbing of all sorts, from thin fingers to chimneys. Hi-tech aid is also available. The bulk of the free climbing routes fall within the 5c-6c range, being easier and especially harder ones abundant.
Drive on AP-7 motorway (toll!) take exit #38 and follow Tivissa signposting. 1h30min from Barcelona airport.
Ask locals and get a guidebbok copy (email@example.com). There are no access issues because the place is uncrowded, but most rocks are on private land, so be respectful with locals and carry out all that you bring in, and a bit more. Bird nesting closures apply, are signposted and are enforced, so please do not cheat!
Local camping, a reasonable priced hotel, or under the stars (be polite, clean and keep a low profile).
Do not add bolts to existing routes! Do not cut trees nor bushes. Respect birds, insects, lizards and any living being in general.
A.Brull and J.M.Anglada established a couple routes in early 70's. 99% of everything else has been established by Josep E. Castellnou, starting on mid 80's and development still continues today. All fixed gear, bolts and any expenses paid by that climber! 500-plus routes to date... and counting!
