The author of this bouldering guide started with the claim to gather all bouldering in Galicia in one work. However, according to his own statement, he failed because of the sheer amount of boulders in the extreme northwest of Spain. Thus, "only" a selection of 4 zones (subdivided into 13 areas) was included in the guide:
The 4 zones: Ferrol, La Coruña, Costa da Morte and Lugo.
In the end, a total of about 2000 problems made it into this extensive work.
At the beginning of each area, all the necessary info is briefly summarized. How to get there with GPS coordinates, rock, number of boulders with information about the difficulty of the boulders, information about climate, food / drink supply and accommodation.
For each area there is a simple, clear sketch.
The areas are then again divided into sectors. For each sector there is a very detailed location sketch of the individual blocks. The individual boulders are drawn as red lines on color photographs and are very easy to read. In addition, there is info on grade, sit start, alignment, child friendliness, caution signs for height and bad jump/fall terrain.
The areas in detail: Corme, Mens Lock, Traba, Monte Xalo, Prior, Eume, Lobadiz, Prioriño, Xistral, Vilalba, Parga, Barredo and Portomarín.
