The fine crag of Sax has an extra sector not covered in the book Spain : Costa Blanca. Sector Cumbre is perched high on the hillside south (left looking in) of Peņas del Rey at Sax and provides some excellent extra climbing for those looking to explore a bit further. The wall contains some great routes on immaculate rock the only drawback being the slightly tortuous ankle-scratching approach slog up the slope to get to the buttress. Many of the routes have well-spaced bolts so carry a few wires if you have them.

The crack line in the groove is not very helpful. The wall to the left is of material assistance.
