Climbing in Jerica

Jerica is a small town in the province of Castellon where the Palancia river passes along, leaving a gray limestone canyon about 40 meters high. It is a pleasant place, with beautiful views of the canyon and where you can find a large number of climbing routes, usually very technical slabs and vertical routes.

The approach to the sector is very short and comfortable, about 5 minutes walk from the parking. The canyon has two climbing walls facing each other, so one receives the sun in the morning while the other one remains in the shadow and vice versa in the afternoon. This makes it possible to climb throughout the year and throughout the day, being able to change the climbing wall very easily. In summer both walls receive sun at the same time during midday (from 2 pm to 4 pm), so it is recommended to take a break to rest and wait for the shade. It is a place with strong air currents, so check wind weather forecasts carefully and bring always a light chaquet, even in summer.

It is only 50 minutes by car from Valencia on the A-23 highway. You can also get there by train (line 5), getting to the canyon through a walk in the town of about 15 minutes. The town is crowned by a striking Mudejar tower that will appear in most of your climbing pictures.
