Costa Blanca Area Information

When to Go

The optimum time to visit is November through to April. The summer months, May to October, are very hot but and you will probably have to confine your climbing activities to the morning and evening. You may be lucky to get periods of cooler weather, but chances are it will be up in the 30s or higher and seeking shade will be the only real option. The winter months can have periods of cold and wet weather (the Gota Fria is the local name for the occasional periods of very heavy rain that fill all the rivers and can even deposit snow on the high summits) but more often than…

Costa Daurada Area Information

When to Go

The Costa Daurada is not as reliable a winter sun venue as its Blanca counterpart to the south but it can still be regarded as an all year round venue. From November to February/March, you may well get cold nights, which can be a drawback if camping, but the day times are often warm and dry. As an indication, most of the colour photos in the guidebook featuring Mark and Emma were taken in February. Probably the best time to go is Easter or Autumn. The Summer will be unbearably hot and there are not enough shady crags to make a trip worthwhile.

Wet weather does occasionally close in but the chances of a complete wash out are low and there is usually always somewhere dry to climb. Summer is most definitely not the time…

Mallorca Area Information

When to Go

The best time to visit Mallorca is in the spring when the temperatures are usually pleasant and it is likely to be dry. Winter can be cold but with some luck the weather may be ideal and many people have had great holidays on Mallorca over Christmas and the New Year. If it does rain then there are many steep crags that stay dry but these tend to only offer harder routes. When it is raining in the mountains it is often still possible to find dry rock on the east coast crags – Betlem, Cala Magraner and Tijuana – which have routes across the grade range. Autumn is the stormy season and, although the temperature will…
