At 1h 10’ drive from Valencia is Olba, a small climbing paradise where you will find hundreds of routes spread all over the canyon shaped by the Mijares river. All climbers will find routes that fit with their climbing abilities. The orientation of the walls allows climbing all year round. Olba is a really small village and the closest facility for climbers is the Regufio Alto Mijares. Involved in the development of the climbing area since a long time and responsibles for the realization of the guidebook, Mirko & Nicky run the refuge. Currently, it only offers basic camping and caravan possibilities but they are working on enhancement. The climbing guidebook is available for sale in the refuge, or you can download it for free in their website. You will also find all relevant information about the routes in the The Crag website application.
One of the most impressive sectors of Olba is Obras Selectas, where there is a high concentration of hard routes, usually in the shadow.
You will find a small supermarket as well as a hotel and restaurant in Venta del Aire, which is the only one of its kind in the whereabouts. Olba is situated at 20 Km of Montanejos and 90 Km of Albarracin. Therefore, it is a good option when it comes to longer climbing holiday involving sport climbing, multi-pitch and bouldering.
