Portugal rock climbing photograph

The photograph opposite shows Joao Pena bouldering on Pes de Arrasto (7c) at Malveirs, Sintra. 

Malveirs is a classic bouldering area close to Sintra.  The rock is yellow/white granite with a medium to hard grain. The rock dries very fast and has a predominance for steep and powerful problems.
