Description

With about 100 routes, Las Mijas is a great place to visit when in Spain. Situated just 40 minutes west of Malaga, this is a crag with a wide variety single pitch limestone routes with stunning city and ocean views.

There is a very good guidebook that includes this area available for sale at:

The routes are well bolted with glue in titanium bolts. The spacing between bolts is reasonable and not run out unless the terrain warrants it.  As of August 2019, it appears that many of the routes have been rebolted.

You can always find a sector to climb that is in the shade, with majority of routes in the shade in the morning and others in the shade all day (The Ravine). The Ravine is cool and has walls facing each other to provide all day shade.  Don't be afraid to try this place in mid summer, the shade keeps it cool.  Be prepared to share the wall with a few pigeons. 
The routes out on the road tend to be shorter, while the Ravine had a good number of longer routes (all single pitch).

GETTING TO THE CRAG
You will need to rent a car. The drive to the crag from Malaga is on very nice freeway/roads.

****Be sure to get an International Driving Permit if you plan on renting a car. They are required by local law enforcement and fine
