Happy new year everyone. As it’s now 2019 it would seem to be a good time to round up what’s been happening in 2018 and maybe a good place to start is the ever busy valley of Teverga. There’s plenty of new routes so I’m going to put them up in three posts…the next sectors are sectors that were started in 2018 La Isla and Mundo Perdido.
Mundo Perdido is quite a big sector and has a wide range of grades and styles of routes, 6ª+ hasta 8ª+. It features typical Tevergan long grey slabs to overhanging red/brown limestone with the typical holds this rock produces and one great thing is the right hand part of this sector stays basically dry in winter. The approach is a steep 15 minute uphill hike!! La Isla is a short 5 two minutes from the road and at the moment is a much smaller and mainly features harder 7s. However, I’m pretty sure that soon there’ll be some more routes soon and in the easier grades too.
Like always these new routes are never the work of a single person and so it’s easier to thank everyone who is usually involved in new routing in Teverga so thanks go to Lolo, Miguelín, Berto, Hectorín, Moss, Mulero, Gali, Raúl, Josete, Jose Camino, Armando, Cesar, Junior, Pablo Martín, Tino, Javi López, Mariluz, Pablo, Diego, Dani, Anselmo, Richie, Javi Garzo, Brillan, Espolita and anyone else who’s helped!!
And remember if you do come to Teverga that all these routes are made possible by the work of the local climbing club so if you do stay in the parking area it’s worth remembering that you can make a donation at the club hut to help with bolts and bolting!!
