Climbing In Spain
We recently took a climbing trip to the Murcia region. Our aim was to climb the Costa Blanca, with Jenny, Pete and Barry. This was a great opportunity chance to broaden our knowledge of the single and multi pitching climbing available in this limestone region of Spain.
To climb the Costa Blanca we booked our accommodation was in Almoradi. Almoradi is ideal because it also caters well for any non-climbers in your group. If you have partners, friends or children who are not planning to climb, Almoradi offers plenty to keep them entertained. The town is also just a short drive from Alicante airport.
Good Places to Climb in Murcia
We visited various cliffs including Para Negra, El Rut which are fantastic multi-pitching climbing venues and La Panocha and Marin which were single pitch climbing venues.
We particularly enjoyed being able to climb new routes and this created chance for Pete to visit cliffs he had never been to before.
Pete said his standout day was Climbing El Rut cliff, where we completed 2 four-pitch multi-pitch routes called Noche Buena and El Mechon de Pico in a day in temperatures of up to 25c° with Dave leading both crux pitches.
