Description

The cliff currently provides over 40 routes on excellent rock and offers many classic high quality routes throughout the grades, comparable with the best in the Costa Blanca region. Further new routes are being added all the time and this guide will be updated to reflect these. The cliff forms a bay with wings on either side. The continuation of the crag to the left leads to its sister crag Murla. Most of the developments are currently situated on the left and right sides of the central bay, although the middle section is now receiving more attention. The left side is typically slabby or vertical walls on perfect smooth pocketed limestone. The central and right sides are steeper with sharper rock – but again with many good pockets and tufas.

Approach

Travel north from Calpe along the N332 towards Benisa and take the turning to Jalon (Xalon). From Jalon take the by-pass to Alcalali. At the T-junction turn left and immediately take the right turning sign posted to Orba. The crag is 2 km further along just after leaving the village, above the sharp bend and is easily visible. There is sufficient parking for 2 or 3 cars on the bend off of the road (38.755772, -0.051604) but other cars can be left in the drainage gutter at the side of the road.

Recently, a new parking spot opened just after leaving the village (38.754180, -0.050435). Walk up the paths from the corner to either the left or right to reach the base of the routes.

Ethic inherited from Comunidad Valenciana

  • La piedra caliza es blanda - por favor, limpie tus zapatos de la suciedad con el fin de evitar asideros y pasos pulidos.
  • No instala toprope directamente a través de anclaje o anillos - usa tu propio material en su lugar.
  • Limpia las marcas de tiza con un cepillo.
  • No dejes papel higiénico.
  • Recoge la basura - también las colillas de cigarrillos.
  • Aparcar con consideración (los tractores deben poder pasar también el fin de semana).

  • The limestone is soft – please clean your shoes from dirt in order to avoid polished handholds and steps.
  • Don't toprope directly through anchors or bolts – use your own material instead.
  • Clean chalk and tickmarks with a brush.
  • Don't leave toilet paper.
  • Pick up rubbish - also cigarette butts.
  • Park considerately (tractors should be able to pass also at the weekend).
