PEÑA RUBIA


Peņa Rubia has been quite popular in the past and it does have some good climbing though a reputation for harsh grades and polished routes hasn't done the place any favours. Its main claim to fame is the nearby Boreal factory and the fact that many famous climbers have tested their sponsored boots on these walls. There is a full grade range from 4s to 8s. Most of the harder routes only have short technical sections on steep bulges often using chipped pockets. The easier routes are some of the more interesting offerings here. The whole crag is fully equipped. Some of the routes have two pitches but in most cases you can run them together with a 60m rope.
