The photograph opposite shows David Rodrigues climbing Kimosabi, F6c+ at Rocha da Pena, in the Algarve. 

Rocha da Pena is a steep crag about 2km in length and is the largest crag in southern Portugal.  The limestone rock is solid and varied that offers a complete range of climbing holds and shapes.  There are nearly 100 routes here from F4 to F8a, with many routes in the F4 to F5 grade range.   The crag also shelters a great variety of flora and wild birds.
