Sierra De Toix

Sierra De Toix
Sierra De Toix is one of the go-to areas for the beginner sports climbers in the Costa Blanca. As such it is very popular and can feel like a climbing wall on busy weekends. The climbing whilst polished is still really good though.

Sierra De Toix is a long thin ridgeline just south of Calpe. It has several main climbing areas all of which have worthwhile rock climbing. Whilst there is some trad the majority is well-equipped sports climbing.

Toix Oeste has several main areas the most popular is the smaller Far Oeste, which has a seemingly endless supply of 4th and 5th-grade routes. All of which are worth a star. It can become very busy but even then the atmosphere is relaxed and the backdrop rather stunning and makes you wonder how you could own one of those villa/apartments below.

Toix Oeste offers both single and multi-pitch routes from the 4th grade upwards. Routes around  Chabito come into the sun first and there is more climbing up this hillside towards the area known as Toix TV. With routes like the sustain Monkey Wall a tough 6c to more amenable climbing around the tropical dreams area. Whilst it is possible to hike straight up to this area, it is better to park elsewhere and walk around the eastern end of the ridge, where you get amazing views of Penon D’Ifach and Calpe.

Toix Este is much smaller than the Oeste, but it does have some great routes that get the morning sun. Although the routes are much tough, fingery and polished.

Below the main Toix Area below the southern slope are several sea cliffs. Raco Del Cueva offers an amazing three pitch 6a, on spaced and questionable bolts. Making it a very adventurous 6a. There are other great trad routes here, but the area is much bigger than you think.

Whilst the Pirates of the Carribean sector has the much celebrated and recently re-equipped Parle. Perhaps one of the finest 6a+ adventures in the Costa Blanca, spiralling its way up a large cave system capped by a limestone arch.

As such Sierra De Toix is something of a major venue in Costa Blanca and a place that will keep drawing you back time and again. It has everything from slabs, wall and overhangs.
