Also check out the climbing pages here, our accommodation is very popular with climbers


El Flare - A great selection of routes in a beautiful setting that would provide a few days entertainment for most middle grade climbers. The unusual "rib" on the Gossos buttress provides a couple of unique routes. And the stalagtites in Piedra Liquida are not to be missed. There are several trad routes here that are well worth doing, so be sure to bring a selection of nuts and cams.
