Gaucín Tierra. Climbing area. Serranía de Ronda.

This climbing area boasts a spectacular mountainous environment, even if Gaucín is really close, perfect for a superb climbing. Thanks to its direction, it is really nice to climb even in hot days. Limestone with a good grip is found. A great range of grades are offered with a domination of slabs and spires.


Once you arrive in the town Gaucín, you will need to find the signs towards the castle Castillo del Águila, where you could park your car. After parking the car, you will walk for about ten minutes along the returning path of the Iron Way, which will lead you to the climbing area.
