Summary

Sunny, fast drying roadside crag with many long pitches and some multi pitch routes.

Description

The best climbing at Guadlest is on the huge wall of Penya l'Alcala. This fine wall has many long pitches on some amazing rock formations. There is still plenty of loose rock around, so take great care and don't stand under climbers at work. It is also known as Sector Piscina. - Rockfax.

Approach

Atraviese Guadalest, regresando hacia la costa por la antigua carretera. Cuando la carretera hace una curva a la derecha y sale del pueblo, tome una pequeña carretera a la izquierda (señalizada como Piscina). Esta estrecha carretera hace una curva a la derecha y desciende de forma pronunciada hasta un amplio aparcamiento a la derecha, frente al acantilado (38.676513, -0.195667).

Atención
El parking principal de Guadalest ha sido desmantelado. Todavía hay espacio para algún turismo pero las plazas son muy limitadas. Origen : (2020-01-23) IG @costablancaclimbs

Drive through Guadalest, heading back towards the coast on the old road. As the road bends right and leaves the town, take a minor left (signed Piscina). This narrow road bends rightwards and descends steeply to extensive parking on the right, opposite the cliff (38.676513, -0.195667).

Attention
Guadalest's main car park has been dismantled. There is still room for some tourism but places are very limited. Source: (2020-01-23) IG @costablancaclimbs

  • 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.
