The white ridges of limestone that line the landscape of the Costa Blanca, whether high in the mountains, or rising above the blue Mediterranean, have for a couple of decades provided a spectacular backdrop to the wealth of fantastic sport climbing in the area. This Mobile MiniGUIDE version from Rockfax lifts the lid on the potential of these ridges, ranging from the well known Bernia Ridge to the dizzying knife-edge ridge of El Castellets. Whether tacked on to a winter sun sport climbing trip or as a holiday mission in their own right, the ridges of the Costa Blanca will provide some memorable days out, being both challenging and taking in some incredibly beautiful scenery.
This Mobile MiniGUIDE covers five of the main ridges in the Costa Blanca. The routes are described in full and are illustrated with maps and photo topos. The guide also has some travel and accommodation details are also included. Please Note - Four of the five ridges described in this Mobile MiniGUIDE have been included in the new Spain : Costa Blanca print guidebook. The included ridges are El Realet, Espolon Central, Bernia Ridge and Toix Ridge. The Segaria Ridge is not in the new print guide.

The updated version 2 is only available in mobile format. This is a format specially designed for mobile phones and tablets and avoids the need to print out the PDF. It has some limited extra navigation functionality and makes best use of the small screen on mobile phones. The PDF is still downloaded in the normal way either straight onto your mobile device, or to your computer, and then you can send it to your device. It can also still be printed using any normal printer although this version is not available in booklet format.
Mobile PDF Reader

There are many free viewers out there, but we have yet to find one that works completely. If you are willing to spend a few pounds on a reader these are the ones we use at Rockfax:
