Summary

Excellent variety and quality of problems on mostly fine-grained sandstone.

A complete online topo can be found here: chalkviech.de/norop.es (print version available from Desnivel)

Description

Scattered concentrations of boulders from 1m to 20 high, vast potential for more development with even plum lines not done in many sectors. Generally, excellent quality routes in areas with other great routes are done. Most problems are steep and have mantle top outs.

Access issues

An area of archeological significance with cave paintings and evidence of continuous use, as well as being an important bird nesting area, access is sensitive. Camping strictly not allowed, sleeping in vans and cars in the car-park is currently tolerated, fires out of the question. Please respect this amazing area!

Approach

1 -30 mins depending on the sector.

Where to stay

Camping in Albarracin costs 8 Euros per night and has excellent facilities including free wifi, showers, bar and laundry. It is 15 mins walk from the old town and 10 from the supermarket and bakery. The crag is 4km from here.

Ethic inherited from Aragon

  • La piedra caliza es blanda - por favor, limpie tus zapatos de la suciedad con el fin de evitar asideros y pasos pulidos.
  • No instale top-rope 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).
