New routes for all grades, and we really mean that!

Steeper than the Wildside and not in any guidebook, the Colosseo area above Sella had its first route bolted 4 years ago and slowly new routes have been appearing since.

With only 10 routes so far and massive potential this area is certainly worth a mention. Routes start at 7c so warm up before you arrive :0)

Rich Mayfield on Colloseo 7C

Echo Valley 1.5 we mentioned on here a while ago, however it has seen a little new action. This area is between Echo 1 and 2 hence the original name! (directions in Rockfax guide). 18 routes at the moment starting at a 3, yes thats correct we bolted some 3´s, great to get a feel for the Costa Blanca rock. This area has proved very popular with the Spanish and visiting climbers. The topo is behind the bar at The Orange House, or email Sam for a copy (she will ask for a donation to the bolt fund or mountain rescue).

Anni on Xmas which is a 5

Now for those that like to get wet, Rich has been busy at the Toix sea cliffs. This area also has a new topo which you can collect from behind the bar, however access to this area really needs a boat. We will be arranging something for the DWS Fest next September. 24 Routes from 5SO to potential 8s. SPLASH!!!
