Description

Picturesque crag above the sea with nice, but relatively short routes on rough rock. Due to the special location of the crag in a privately owned nature reserve, great importance should be attached to nature conservation. The grades of all routes are written on the rock at the base of each climb.

The right parts of the crag receive shadow in the afternoon and due to the proximity to the sea there is often a fresh breeze blowing. Unluckily, it's not straightforward to change over to the beach of Cala Bota, this requires some scrambling down the ledge or a longer walk (see: approach). Not really kid's friendly, but it's ok. The starting ledge is wide and comfortable, but falls off to the sea for about 20m.

Approach

Park your car at 39.47736 / 3.27238. From there follow the dirt road through a gate for about 1km. In a left turn, there is a path right going down to be beach of Cala Bota, take instead the one going straight. Once you have reached the coast and the path ends, go right for some metres through the bushes and downclimb (easy!) to a ledge at half height of the cliff. Follow this a bit to the left to reach the crag.

Ethic

  • No music!
  • Leave no trace!

Grade Route

Super cool 3D climbing with an exit through a hole in the ceiling.

Impressive roof bouldering along a flake to an easy exit.

Wall climb directly left of the dihedral, with a short technical passage in the middle.

Follow the obvious layback crack along the dihedral.

Athletic overhanging start to a perfect rest followed by a more technical upper part.

Nice climb with a hard start and a hard finish - find the big slot full of crystals (bottom) and the petrified crag (top)!

Exposed climbing on monster jugs to a thin exit right of the upper overhang. Climbing it directly is 6c.

The dihedral / crack right of 'Touch the sky'

The red slab with an overhanging head wall and a reachy exit.
