Acantilado de Bixauca

A pleasant cliff set amongst olive, almond and cherry trees, the crag of Bixauca offers something at most grades, usually on good, incut and rough holds. The left hand side has some hard, steep tufas, the middle some long middle grade classics (80m rope required), and the right hand side steep, sustained routes.
