We are currently developing a new bouldering area just 5 minutes drive from the Finca Margarita, within the dry Rio Gorgo riverbed that runs just below the hill, between the villages of Benigembla and Castell de Castells. The unique geography and weathering of these limestone boulders has created a range of other-wordly shapes & features, abundant with smooth slopers, pockets & crimps. The style of the bouldering is technical, although there are a few steeper & burlier problems can also be found here. There are currently 4 distinct sectors: Malafi, Presa, Moonbase and Petracos. Grades currently range from 2 – 7a+, but there are plenty of harder lines just waiting for first ascents! More information will soon be available at http://gorgobloc.wordpress.com.
Other nearby bouldering areas include Tormos, Pedreguer (Poets), Lliber and Las Rotas, all within a 20-40 minute drive from the Finca. Slightly further afield is the steep cave fun of Almenara and the beach bouldering at Villa Joiosa. More information can be found at http://www.norop.es.
