Asturias, Cantabria and Leon, (the areas covered in Roca Verde) are areas covered in limestone walls of all shapes and sizes and host to a fantastic selection of accessible sport-climbing venues. Well bolted and cared for by a committed local climbing population these are fantastic areas for all-year-round climbing.
Undiscovered by most this is an area that’s recommended by everyone who goes. Dave Pickford, editor of Climb Magazine UK describes the area as ‘quite possibly Europe’s best kept climbing secret’ while Miles Gibson who was road tripping across Spain a couple of years ago said the area had ‘Great climbing, tons of rock, good weather, and a friendly vibe. I went to Spain for 3 months and the best route I did was at Teverga (Asturias)’.
Roca Verde contains over 50 selected crags that contain over 230 distinct sectors and nearly 3500 routes! Importantly, it includes the information the locals know; how to choose the right venue for sun or shade, summer or winter and for whatever grade you climb.
