Enjoying perfect rock and big blue skies, in November! Los Cerezos crag - Sport Climbing Holiday Costa Blanca

Sport Climbing Holiday Costa Blanca

This week we welcomed back Rachel and Naz this week for 4 action packed days of rock climbing. Starting at the nearby crag of Alcalali, we blasted through 7 routes on day one. The day was bright and sunny yet the crag was pretty quiet, we certainly had the pick of routes. As the sun fell low in the sky and the crag began to glow, a big group of climbers arrived for the golden hour as the sunset. It was almost time for us to pack up, so we could enjoy some entertainment from fellow climbers as we did so.

For our second day we headed for the coast and Toix crags. Rachel having visited Toix a few times already we decided on a different sector, so went to Toix Tropical Dreams. With temperatures soaring it certainly felt tropical!
We cruised through 4 long routes and finished with an abseil. Always good to include some skills during a day out climbing.

For day 3 there was a slightly uncertain weather forecast, so we again headed for the coast and this time to Morro Falqui. Climbing a couple of harder routes before the rain arrived, then finishing off the climbing with an easier (and dry) climb called ‘Coming Out’. We finished the day with some scrambling along the nearby sea cliffs, another grand day out.

Rachel was keen to revisit Los Cerezos crag near Tarbena, so we went here on their last day. We had the whole crag, well probably the whole valley, to ourselves, meaning it was an incredibly peaceful day. The sun blasted onto the crag all day too and it would have been very easy to just lie around and sunbathe. We cruised through I think either 6 or 7 routes, most being 30+m long too, so a good mileage day. We finished up as the sun dripped below the hills and cool air engulfed the valley, perfect timing again.
Stopping once or twice whilst walking back, just to breath in the atmosphere, the fresh air, and the peacefulness.

More great days with lovely people 🙂
