Portugal rock climbing photograph

The photograph opposite shows Martim Vidigal bouldering on Spetsnaz (7a+) at Capuchos, Sintra. 

Capuchos is a classic bouldering area close to Sintra.  The rock is yellow/white granite with a hard grain.  The area is one of the best options for beginners with a good concentration of easy boulders with a predominance of slabs and low boulders.
