/ Climbing around Ronda (Andalucia)
Hello fellow pebble wrestlers!
I am heading to Ronda in a couple of weeks with some friends, who don't climb. My first look at some pictures of the area, I thought how great it looks for some climbing.
Obviously being alone in my fascination of gripping some grit, It would be great to find a local guide.
If anyone has any knowledge of guides in the area I could contact, that would be great. I haven't been able to find any yet.
Hi. I climb regularly in this area and when I don’t have a partner I climb with local guide David Munilla . All round good guy, local climbing guru , guide book writer and English speaker. email@example.com
. I recommend him if available. Mention my name.
it will be very hot at the moment so you will need an early start and a north facing crag ( Benaocaz has some sectors like this and is a nice spot)
"Escalar En Cadiz" and "Andalucia" guide books by david Munilla were really good for when i was staying and climbing in the area.
a personal favourite for me is Grazalema. it was the highlight of a climbing trip and a non climbing trip.
the climbing is shaded and with a large cross section of grades. had a lot of fun on the easy and hard.
non climbing, the town is really pretty and the hill walking behind the town and up the hills are stunning
There is also a via feratta in the canyon beneath the main road. Not brilliant but will pass a couple of hours on.
Mountaineering Scotland has called for action to be taken against the growing issue of 'dirty camping', which sees irresponsible campers leaving rubbish, fire damage, toilet waste and even tents in their wake.
