Product information "climbing guidebook Costa Blanca"

In proven RockFax quality, this selection guide presents all areas of the Costa Blanca between Gandia in the north and Murcia in the south. The 5th edition of this book is the most comprehensive work to date on the many beautiful areas of this region. It contains 47 climbing areas with a total of more than 3000 climbing routes. The variety of climbs is incredibly diverse. The spectrum ranges from perfectly equipped single pitches and multi-pitch routes right by the sea to alpine climbing in the hinterland.
This Rockfax guide is also intended as a selection guide, i.e. the climbing areas included are only described in part. Anyone looking for a comprehensive climbing guide for one of the areas is therefore better advised to look out for the respective local guide. However, if you are planning a climbing trip to the Costa Blanca and would like to look around several areas, this guide is the best choice. This much is certain, the important sectors are guaranteed to be included.
Very clearly laid out guide.
The introduction and the explanation of the pictograms (legend) have been translated into German, among other languages.All walls are described in great detail using pictograms (including protection, orientation, hours of sunshine, wind, visitor numbers) - additional information on climbing style, length and enjoyment factor is provided for the individual routes.Most of the topos are superimposed on very good color photographs, otherwise they are sketched by hand - they are very easy to read throughout.The guide is illustrated with many photos. There is also plenty of information on accommodation, food and drink, transportation and other activities.
All in all, a very comprehensive and clear climbing guide.
