Cuenca is one of the best climbing crags in Spain, but probably one of the less known to foreign climbers. It is located in the central part of Spain, in the Cuenca province, 100 miles away from Madrid. The sectors are situated on a 2 miles radius from the city of Cuenca.
Climbing started there at the late 80s when several climbers from Madrid decided to move from Patones to another crag with more potential for hard routes.
The rock is a soft limestone with lots of small and tiny two and one finger holds, and crimpers. Most of the routes are slightly overhanged slabs but there are also very steep routes. It is possible to find grades from 5.8 up to 5.14c, but the easy ones are not very worth indeed. Most of the routes are stamina problems though it is possible to find endurance and power-endurance problems.
