La Hermida – New Guide

Our new La Hermida climbing guide is here!!!

The most anticipated guidebook of the year ‘El Desfiladero de La Hermida – the definitive sport climbing guide’ which contains 24 never before published crags (and nearly 700 routes) in this tufa-strewn region of northern Spain is ready to ship. 

The cost of the book is £20 and shipping to the Uk is £7 for a tracked parcel. This should arrive in 7 days. (We are now not offering an untracked service as it suddenly seems to be very unreliable).

Please be aware books will be sent on Wed or Friday only as I live long way from a post office. 

The book is not available in store in the UK.

This new guide builds on Roca Verde to reveal all the secrets to the most sought after crags of the valley including the world-class venues of Cicera and the newly opened Carcalosa. As well as these there’s a host of smaller, high-quality crags including Pechón, Estragüeña, Cueva Hermida, Cosgaya, Cabañes and many more.

Studded with superb action photos and simple, clear topos throughout this is the perfect guide for anyone looking to come to the Picos this summer.

  1. I ordered la hermida guide book over a week ago and have not received either the guide book or confirmation email regarding dispatch

    1. Peter,
      many apologies, your book was sent on 17th July. Thanks for your order and once again sorry that i forgot to send your confirmation.

    1. Nataly,
      the new book is for the La Hermida valley – which is just a small part of the Roca Verde area. Roca Verde has 3500 routes across a very very big area and includes all of Asturias and Leon – La Hermida is a small part of this bigger book.
      So the La Hermida book expands on one part of the Roca Verde book. In Roca Verde there are about 8 crags and 250 routes in La Hermida – in La Hermida the are 32 crags and 700 routes.

      The books are complementary so if you are only going to the La Hermida area you could get that book but if you want to explore a wider area it’s best to get the Roca Verde guide.

      I hope that make sense.
