GUADALEST


The rocky citadel of Guadalest has always been known for the bouldering available there, but recently the extensive walls have been developed and now the area is well worth a visit with a selection of routes across the grades, on a variety of walls. All the routes are well-bolted sport routes, some are (shortish) multi-pitch offerings, good for an introduction to that style of climbing.
