We’ve based ourselves by the seaside, a little north of Gandia – not the most inspiring campsite, but easy reach of the Gandia crags as well as Tallat Roig. The ‘Red Cut’ is an impressive, broad crag with half a dozen sectors a few km inland near the town of Alzira.
The rock is heavily featured and has some sandstone characteristics, especially near the base of the routes (which can be a bit bulging and polished). The climbing is excellent, across a good spread of grades from IV to mid 7s with a lot in the 5 to 6b band. …but worth having a bit in hand whilst you get used to the rock, as they don’t give them away!
Access is easy. 10 minutes up a well graded once you find the right parking!
We had a couple of days there and caught up with Tansy and Keefe on the second day.
