“Portugal – Rock climbs on the western tip of Europe” it’s the new Portuguese rockclimbing guidebook, an ambitious project of my friend Carlos Cuca Simes, in which I team up to photograph the best and most representative climbing spots!! The guide is publish under the stamp of Versant Sud.
«It’s a guidebook that brings to light a compilation of most of the up to now hidden Portuguese rock climbing potential; a big update of what has been written and further developed in the last ten years. From the western tip of Europe comes an extensive list of climbs to be enjoyed along 700km of beautiful Atlantic coastline and 200km of inland, charming landscapes.
From infinite granite chaos, domes and walls in the north, to central limestone crags, random basalt splitters, quartzite, the renowned Sintra’s bouldering, coastal routes around the capital and down south… there is space for everyone, whether you are seeking remote trad adventures, boulders, deep water soloing or hard sport sends. Complemented with culture, gastronomy, ease of traveling, other water sports or – for the more fanatic – on its own, Portugal is with no doubt one of the ultimate European climbing destinations.»
