The Costa Blanca is a costal region in the southeast of Spain. Dedicated exclusively to the Costa Blanca, this is the most comprehensive book ever published to sport and trad climbing on Spain's 'white coast' – weighing in at 368 pages and covering a host of superb cliffs between Leyva in the far south to Gandia in the north. With well over 2300 routes described in detail, this book will keep any ardent sun-rocker busy for years.
The Costa Blanca has become renown as Europe's premier winter sun rock venue, with a great climate, bags of accommodation, cheap flights and enough high quality climbing to last a lifetime. As well as covering the clip-ups on the ever-popular cliffs around Benidorm and Calpe, the book details big outings on the Puig Campana, The Penon, and the Echo Valley area.
