Summary

Vertical and gently overhanging limestone sport climbing set in an amazing canyon.

Description

A nice 45 min drive west of Valencia brings you to the warmest, driest and most spectacular Euro winter climbing going.

The vertical and slightly overhanging walls are littered with anything from tufas to crimps, and with pitch lengths regularly exceeding 30m, you have some of the most sustained climbing in Europe.

It is quite a sight to find a Spaniard here as the masses from up North take up residence to avoid the cold and wet.

Where to stay

Information about apartments can be found in the Adjuntament or a quick walk around town will yield lots of phone numbers of likely short term stays.

The El Altico refugio overlooks Chulilla and has the has option for campervans as well.

Unofficially camper vans can stay in the car parks at either end of town. There are no facilities to 'go' though. Wild camping is prohibited (if they can find you).

As always, if you are freedom camping or wild camping (may it be illegal), dispose of human excrement appropriately (e.g. poo tube, biodegradable plastic bag, etc), do not collect firewood or harm trees (dead wood provide habitats for native animals), do not litter (even food waste that will biodegrade - it's an eyesore for others). Abide by the 'Leave No Trace' philosophy minimising your impact, having a conservation mindset, and avoid lighting fires. #LeaveNoTrace #HikeItOut
