La Bola




Small boulder field right next to a residential area of Xativa. Hence the good side is the really short approach. You are also at the entrance of a hiking area, which provides a nice background.

On the negative side, the boulders are in the sun the entire day. There are a few trees, but not directly at the boulders.

There is also trash lying around the closer you are to the street. Although, this gets better as you go higher and further away. The first few boulders are also smeared with graffiti.

If you consider bringing your kids, think twice. There are no cliffs to fall off, but the ground is not really suitable for children either. The few trees that provide shade are usually on slopes and uneven ground.

There is still new route potential on the existing boulders, as well as completely fresh boulders further up - at least no known documentation of ascents is available.

Beware of ticks in the area. Check yourself and others after visiting.

Although you could park directly in front of the boulder field, it is recommended that you choose the (38.983334, -0.527136) a few meters up the road to not molest the residents.

From the parking, walk westwards for 200 meters. A small footpath on you left leads into the boulder field. You'll be able to see Bloque 1 right in front of you already.

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).
