Guadalest and Echo Valley
Guadalest is a beautiful climbing area set around the mountaintop village of the same name. It’s castle-like looks that command the top of the Guadar Valley has made the area popular with tourist. There are several museums in the area and plenty to explore after a climb.
The climbing is found on several distinct and separate buttresses around the castle, as such you can chase the sun and you might need to as the exposed setting means the wind can be biting up there during the colder winter months. Although the different aspects also allow you to find shelter from this as well.
Whilst the Sector Del Castillo offers a few great routes scatter around whilst Penya D’Acala is much more extensive and as a wider variety of climbs. Finally, Pena Maura is an isolated pillar next to the Refugio, which serves tea, coffee and beer for the weary climbers.
Further down the valley towards Benidorm is Echo Valley. Again this has multiple areas and a wide variety of both easy routes at Echo 1.5. Whilst El Castellet has a few excellent route across the grades from easy trad climbs like The Wasp through to single pitch sports routes up to the 7th grade.
All in all the Guadar Valley is a great place for beginners and experts alike, with great views in a near mountain setting is a firm favour to visit on our Costa Blanca climbing courses
