The Costa Blanca has long been the best known Hot Rock winter sun venue for climbers wanting a break from the grim northern winter. The reasons the place became popular in the first place are same reasons that this popularity has endured; easy access, loads of quality accommodation, a benign winter climate, and of course an amazing amount of fantastic climbing on everything from roadside boulders to magnificent mountains. This is the fifth edition that Rockfax have produced to the ‘White Coast’, with over 22,000 copies already sold over the years., This completely revised and updated volume builds on the success of the earlier ones with increased coverage of the most popular areas and the addition of several new crags. With nearly 4,000 routes and a complete new set of crag shots and action pictures the book stays fresh for years to come.

comprehensive, up to date, accessible This is the iconic guide to the area covering both inland and coastal crags.

Routes are shown on a photograph of the crag with brief descriptions below – not enough to ruin a climb, but enough to give you an idea of the character, difficulty and where you should go

I can’t believe that all these routes have been checked, but none the less it is a great piece of work which indicates the potential of the area. It is interesting to see how this guide has become more and more informative. I like the new departure with the inclusion of the ridges, although I talked to another user and he didn’t even notice their inclusion. Perhaps the…
