Sport climbing in Chulilla

Chulilla is one of the best climbing crags in the region and it is the place where we won’t find clouds during 300 days of the year. Climbing in a huge, beautiful limestone canyon with a little village behind. The place that you just have to visit if you are traveling aroud Spain.

It is said that climbing in Chulilla is possible all year long. Though in my oppinion during hot summer days it maight be just impposible. On the other hand in those days you can go for a walk in the canyon and enjoy the river. It is easy to find sectors on the shadow when it gets too hot as well as find some climbing on the sun for cold winter days.

It is better to buy drinking water in a shop. Next to the parking before the village you can find a tap with water on a playground. There is also a tap in the main squere of village. This water thought smells of desinfection. The canyon starts with a huge dame that makes a big lake. There are several places where You can go down the water to one of stone biches. There is also a very nice river in the canyon. Perfect for to chill down a little after climbing in hot days.

Climbing in Chulilla is impressive. A canyon where most interesting climbing is 80 meters height, what makes sometimes difficult to see the end of the routes. The rock is orange limestone. All the routes are very well bolted with nice reunions. All you need is a 70 meters long rope (sometimes more can be useful but not necessary) and lots of quick drils. Some places are more overhanging so you will find long powerfull movements on huge tufas or small crips but the most usual style is steep and more tecnical. The only thing missing in Chulilla is very overhanging roof, but sector El Balcon is overhanged enough.

Easy routes are difficult to find in all the canyon. Routes between 6a-6c are not so often, but from 7a to 7c there is a lot. Also from 8a and more. The hardest route in Chulilla is 8c+. This may not draw attention of those very strong climbers. But there are many hard propositions. What makes this place perfect for spring warm ups, hard OnSights and winter RedPoints.
