Most of the routes are on the mid grades. Granite overhangs and slabs. Three main sections. The upper part with a few easy routes. A mid section with some mid grade slabs. A lower section with some mid and high level overhanged routes. The most overhanged routes present problems of endurance and stamina. The rest are, mostly, power or power-endurance problems. Crimps, planes, and some cracks are the predominant holds. Some good topos in http://personal.telefonica.terra.es/web/ocio/ This is Tinín's web site. Tinín is the guy who has bolted some of the routes at Peña Pintada. NOTE: The reported guide "Guia de escalada..." is not a very good one. Concerning Peña Pintada the info is not very precise and some of the names and grades are wrong.
This place is near the limit of the "Cuenca Alta del Manzanares" regional park. There have been some problems with the rangers about a supposed bird nesting. Nobody have ever seen bird nesting on this piece of rock. Never. Besides the climbing sections are completely outside of Park limits (they are near, though) so no special evironmental restrictions apply here.
This is a relatively high place 1800m above the sea level, so climate is typicaly high mountain-continental. Warm summers, pretty cold in autumm and spring, and really cold in winter (covered by snow from november til april).South oriented so it can be a little hot in summer.
Camping is not allowed. There are a couple of vivacs near the routes, but there is no nearby water.
Be careful with thieves. They have already stolen some QDs from projects.
