This is the definitive guidebook describing the sport climbing to be found in Cuenca, which is located around 170km east of Madrid. The climbing style is technical, powerful pocket climbing on sharp steep limestone rock in the medium to high grade range. The different sectors face all possible orientations with easy approaches and comfortable bases. At an altitude of 1,000m the best time to visit Cuenca to climb is in the spring and autumn.

For each area there is access and approach information with GPS co-ordinates for the parking areas. Symbols indicate the style of climbing, the orientation to the sun, approach time, and height of the crag. In total there are over 1,100 sport routes, with 34 routes up to F5c, 274 routes between F6a and F6c, 523 routes between F7a and F7c+, and 293 routes above F8a. All the routes are shown on colour photo topos, with French grades used throughout.

This is the second edition of the guidebook, published by Desnivel in April 2014, and is written in Spanish and English text throughout. A lot of new development has occurred since the first edition with many new routes added in the mid-grade range.
