Summary

Sport routes of all levels, typically technical climbing that requires some adpatation. Its proximity to the beaches of Tarifa gives it a paradisiacal character.

Description

You can climb there even in summer. Perfect conditions, even when you think it's too hot for climbing. There are areas with lots of shadow.

There are about 4000 boulder problems in the area around Tarifa. If you need information check out Carlos Vela's Youtube Channel. He can offer you a lot of information.

Access issues

Bird nesting closures in some sectors from 1st March to 31st August.

Approach

From the parking lot to the rock it's about 5 minutes walk, depends on the area, but in general you get there really fast.

Where to stay

Camping is prohibited throughout the area. During the summer it is forbidden to stay overnight (under fine), but you can bivouac next to the cars. In Bologna there are several hostels and at Punta Paloma beach there are two campsites.

There is a nice bar where you find all the climbing locals in the evening. You can buy the guide books there and have a cheap beer and good talk!
