We’ve just posted a couple of Destination Guides for two of the biggest regions covered by the Roca Verde guide to help you get a feel for the cragging available.
Valles de Trubia – The gorgeous, green, Valles del Trubia, situated just south of the capital of Asturias, Oviedo, contain plenty of crags and over 1500 routes, making this a great holiday rock destination. Situated in the north-west of Spain the temperatures here are nowhere near as brutal as the south of Spain; this makes all-year-round climbing possible and a summer Spanish cragging trip a great option! (By the way our new rental pad is here too check out Roca Verde Apartment)

El Desfiladero de La Hermida – Snaking sinuously south from just west of Santander there’s a savage slit that acts as the border between Cantabria and Asturias and the main thoroughfares into the heart of the Picos de Europa. Deep, steep-sided and improbably festooned with a ton of amazing looking faces (not all of them developed) the gorge of the Desfiladero de La Hermida combines perfectly with the crags around Arenas de Cabrales in eastern Asturias to make a brilliant, easy-access, summer and autumn sport climbing destination.

And for a bit more inspiration for a visit here’s my friend Graham on one of the best routes at Teverga, the brilliant Sabrina, 7c, at Pared Negra….
