/ Hard crimpy face climbs
I'm looking for sport venues that have sustained crimpy face climbs(not slabs) in the high 7s and 8s.
Siurana has plenty of routes in this style, anywhere else people would recommend, or particular skin shredding favourites?
Do you mean UK or abroad? In UK the Malham, Creag a' Bhancair and Welsh Slate all have plenty. Abroad the 'original' bits of Verdon gorge?
Large parts of Frankenjura (where it is not one fingered pocket puling),
Chuilla big long routes fly to Valencia Just got back myself, also my type of climbing.
Was thinking Europe.
I've been to Chulilla quite a bit. Agree it's a great place.
Never been to Frankenjura as my perception was that its steep pocket pulling. I will investigate further...
Been to Smith about 20 years ago, definitely need to go back.

Definitely get to Verdon if you like that crimping style. The rock is a little friendlier to the skin than in Siurana and even more compact! Happy to recommend some routes, drop me a PM.
Don't assume it's all multipitch either (although many utterly brilliant routes are!), there's been much development in recent years and there is a good amount of long, crimpy single pitch with rarely any other climbers around.
It's also worth contacting Alan Carne on Facebook about Verdon, he's got a wealth of information to share.
Nice one Ramon, that's exactly what I'm after.
Great call. Incidently looking for a partner to work this, this summer
Dan, check this as well, bang on the money
You certainly have !! Nearly every route I try you’ve done hehe
Arco, crag Nago in particular.
Chulila, as others have mentioned.
Given I can abseil into it from my front garden, I might manage some belay duties. I would need to shed some serious weight and get serious on the fingerboard to even get into the pulling on zone though...
Cheers will take you up on that when dried out
