A short via ferrata just above the car park leads very quickly up onto the ridge. Although easy, it's worth considering protecting this section, either with VF lanyards, or by pitching with rope. Once on the ridge follow it leftwards, bolts mark the route. About 4 easy pitches lead to an equipped abseil station. Whilst it's possible to continue along the entire ridge, a fun alternative is to abseil here, a 50m abseil leads through the massive hole to another abseil to scrambling ground under the sport climbing area.
This whole trip can be done in around 2 hours 30 minutes, so even feasible as an airport day for those on holiday.
The first section of ridge is equipped, although no belay stations are currently in place. After this a small selection of trad' gear will prove useful for occasional protection and building belays, should these be required.

Alcalali crag shines as such a venue, and we feel super lucky it's only a 5 minute drive from our winter base. With climbs here ranging from grade 3 up to the mid 7's there's something to keep most happy. It's also a sunny and sheltered venue, making it perfect for winter sun seekers, oh and the view.... well don't just take our word for it, come see.
