This is a comprehensive guidebook describing the fantastic sandstone bouldering at Albarracin in the Aragon region of Central Spain. Albarracin has quickly developed into the best bouldering area in Spain and is often described as the next best in Europe after Fontainebleau. Albarracin has many huge ancient sandstone blocks that are solid, well-weathered and situated in a forest. There are a variety of problems to climb from quality slabs, amazing arêtes, overhanging walls on crimps and cracks, to huge roofs. Albarracin is at an altitude of over 1,000m above sea level, making the air cool enough to climb throughout most of the year except high summer and is generally very dry.
The guidebook describes 15 different sectors and over 1,600 problems across a wide range of grades. At the start of each sector is a general description, location map, chart showing the spread of grades, GPS co-ordinates for the parking and the 1st boulder in the sector. Information is also included whether the sector is in the sun or shade, child friendly and how popular it is. For each problem symbols indicate if it is sit start, its exposure and its style. This style ranges from crimps, and slopers, to dynamic and technical moves. All problems are shown on colour photo topos with Fontainebleau grades.
