About Rio Tajo & Cerro de Bu:

Climbing in Toledo is interesting, to say the least. Along the far side of the Rio Tajo, there are bolted routes from V to 8a along the highway cut. These are generally short in nature -- almost boulder problems. The rock is gneiss, with some chipped holds. The quality is surprisingly good...for a highway cut. However, your belayer will have an area of half a meter to stand in between him and passing cars. There is no guardrail and the cars go by fast. Falling will be the least of your concerns. The Cerro de Bu has longer routes (up to two short pitches) up to 8a on a promising looking (from afar) outcrop along the river. It might be OK if it weren´t for the pidgeons -- there are thousands of them and they crap everywhere. The Cerro is better known for its archeological sites as this is the original location of the settlements that were to become Toledo. So, if you are desperate...
Nearest town or city: Toledo
Directions: Located along the highway on the far side of the Rio Tajo, across the Puente de Alcantara. Also, on the large hill, the cerro de bu, farther south on the same side of the river. There are other scattered bolted areas as well. You could get away with camping but probably wouldn´t want to.
