27-11-10, Costa Blanca - Rock Climbing

Didre UBSA, HVS 5+ - Penon de Ifach, Calpe.

Another enjoyable week rock climbing on the Costa Blanca. The weather has been getting cooler but still warm. We have climbed on Penon de Ifach the great square blocky cliff by the sea off Calpe, Sella and Montessa. Here are are some more photos of the climbing.

I have arrived back to a cold and snowy Snowdonia. There looked to be a fair covering on the hills, however a closer inspection will be required tomorrow. I hear people have been getting out climbing winter routes, so hopefully with a cold spell here to stay for a few weeks, North Wales will be winter playground again!
Photos - Right, Montesa with its idyllic castle, short but pocketed gritty limestone!

Cragging at Sella, excellent crag although getting a little polished.

Mollo Falqui.
