Albufeira Crag

New Crag in Albufeira its not big but well worth a look.
Big thanks to Nuno for showing John and i around,
This crag gets the sun all day and is very Hot so skip it mid summer
but autumn winter and spring will be great and the sea is a stone throw
The access is an easy 50mtwalk from the road and the view
from the top of the routes is amazing.The Grades start at 6a
to 8b and are not for the novice climbers,but what a place.

If you ever find your self in the Algarve and your up for it!
check out the Mirror,one of the best routes you will find.
There are 3 sport routes,Silent running 6b goes straight up the
middle.Small swell,sunny day and the tide was low.Why not!
60mtr abseil to a small ledge with belay point.
West facing so takes some serious beating from the sea,
Some of the bolts are rusty and the route does not see much
traffic,so climb this with Caution!!..
But well worth the risk,just ask John.
Great day,so what you waiting for???.....
