Description

Costa Blanca in the Alicante province of Southern Spain is home to several excellent limestone crags and towers offering sunny sport climbing and traditional multi pitch adventures. The town of Calpe is the climbing hub of the area and a good place to find cheap accommodations. This area is popular with British tourists and climbers and lacks the charm and character of many other areas of Spain but is still well worth a visit.

Getting There

The small town of Finestrat is a good base for the Costa Blanca crags (Guadelest, Alkalali, Sierra de Toix, Puig Campana, Echo Valley, etc.). Finestrat has plenty of Spanish charm! It has several restaurants and is only a 10 minute drive from Carrefour and Aldi.

Both the Orange House and Casa Roc are located in Finestrat. The Orange House hostel, located directly below the village, has private rooms, bunk rooms, a full kitchen, living room, and camping. The Orange House shares topos for newly developed routes and areas and is a good place to find partners. Dec 11, 2017
