The Spain : Costa Blanca book was (once again) “the biggest Rockfax ever” with 456 pages, a title it is likely to keep until the next book is published in the summer! Despite its size we still didn’t have room for a number of the crags that we had covered in the previous 2005 edition – crags like Ibi, Sierra Magdelena and Alcoi amongst others. Most of these were dropped due to them being either very outlying, or not very popular.
This MiniGuide contains 4 of these crags and two extra buttresses from covered crags. It also has Morro Falqui which only ever previously featured in a MiniGuide, and El Picayo, which is a nice-enough little crag but a bit distant from the main areas (see photo). Also of note is the fact that we think we have finally got a decent and accurate approach description to Alcoi – possibly the hardest crag to find anywhere.
The MiniGuide is available in a two-side-printer paginated booklet version (A4-Booklet), and a single-side-printer version (A4-Paper).
