Pego

A pleasant crag that is difficult to find, just outside the village of Pego. It has two buttresses, one right next to the car park with several lower grade routes, and a second, better crag just 10 minutes up the valley. Although not a major cliff, the routes are on the shorter side, some of the climbing is very good.

The upper cliff is described here. The lower cliff has routes from 5a to 5c on the wings, and a couple of 6bs in the middle.
