L'Ocaive

International > Europe > Spain > Costa Blanca > Xal├│/Jalon valley

Description

Shady until the afternoon. It was never crowded when we were there. There are a few different sections close to each other, the main and most impressive being a huge cave with a 5.14 route straight up the steepest part. There are a few steep tufa climbs and one or two 5.13 climbs up less steep parts of this face. The other section has easier slabbier climbs in the 5.10 range.

Getting There

The crag is located within a 30 minute drive of Calpe. It is along the CV-720 between the towns of Alcalani and Pedreguer. Coming from Calpe, you go north on the N332 and then turn left after Benissa towards Alcalani. At Alcalani you will turn right towards llosa de camancho and continue 6.8 km along this road until you see a small dirt road on the right hand side of the road. You can also see L'Ocaive a while before you get to it. Turn up this dirt road and park after the first bend. Walk along the road and find a hiking path to the right. You'll be heading sort of away from the crag at this point, so find a spot where a climbers trail turns left.
