Since 1996, Rockfax has been synonymous with the Costa Blanca area of Spain. The three editions the triple Costa Blanca, Mallorca, El Chorro book helped make the area a firm favourite amongst travelling climbers and since then, the 2005 Costa Blanca book has cemented its reputation as one of the best destinations around for great sport and trad climbing.
It is the quality and variety of the climbing that keep people coming back time and again: bags of classy sport routes across the grades, some superb multi-pitch sport routes and magnificent trad climbing in a mountain setting.
The latest edition of the guidebook was published in February 2013. It is bigger than ever (surprise, surprise) including several new venues and a host of older ones in better detail with more up-to-date coverage.
