Mostly short routes with of 10m-15m height. Only on the right side there are a few longers ones of up to 20m.

In the shade until approx. 14:00.

Access issues inherited from Gestalgar

In July and August the parking under Peña Maria is not open for vehicles. You have to park 400m earlier on a bridge next to Fuente El Morinello.

Camping is not allowed.

Local Guidebook

You can support development and re-bolting of the area by buying the local guidebook (15€) from Club de deportes de montaña y escalada Peña María Gestalgar. It is for sale in bars in the nearby village of Gestalgar. Errors in the guidebook have been corrected here on theCrag to the best of our knowledge.

Grade Route

Easy start with spicy finish.

Bouldery start. Then easy to the top.

Bouldery start, easier than its neighbors left and right.

Bouldery start. Once you reach the ledge, you are on easier ground.

Either go straight up through crimps, or avoid them to the far right. Either way, the route is basically over once you reach the ledge. Harder than its neighbor in the corner.

Stemming in the corner. Good warm-up climb.

Hard

Shares the same (hard) start with Alto Los Cuernos. Seems a bit hard for the grade. There are easier warm-ups around.

The small overhang is not as hard as it looks. Go for it!

Follow the prominent crack. Easier on top.

The longest routes of the sector are found here.

Good holds help you over the short overhang at the start. A small crux also keeps the slab interesting.

Very diverse climb and sustained climb
