21-11-10, Costa Blanca - Rock Climbing

I have been in Spain, climbing on the limestone cliffs of the Costa Blanca since last Wednesday. The weather has been dry and warm (18 degrees), a little breezey but nothing to complain about. Myself and Kathryn have climbed at a different crag everyday, all sport climbing, around Gandia and Xalo. My finger tips are getting sore but we still have another week left. Hopefully climb some trad routes on the big cliffs near Benidorm when it gets less windy. The highlight so far is probably 'Sonjanka' 6a+ (photo right) a six pitch sport route which climbs the length of the cliff.


  1. Hi there, where is the top photo? Is it the costa blanca rockfax guide?

    Thanks, D

    1. Hi,

      It was taken from on top of the second photo, place called Morro Falqui. It isn't in the rock fax book, but is downloadable in a PDF 'xtra'.
