Costa Blanca Rock Climbing Topo Guide

About the Guide

A rock climbing guide to Castellets-Finestrat by Compass West International School of Rock Climbing.

This guide features a comprehensive set of topos and route descriptions for over 160 sport and traditional climbs on the Castellets ridge which are not featured in any paper guides.

It is set to grow to cover more of new crags being developed by Compass West and their clients in the Finnestrat region as well as selected other crags in the area. We intend to make regular updates to the app adding newly developed crags and also adding our back catalogue of existing topos that are not fully covered in the select guides to the Costa Blanca region.

How to use

This app uses standard navigation features familiar across smart phone apps, other features that may not be immediately obvious include:

  1. In order to keep the application download file size small, the app isn't preloaded with any of the topo images; these can be downloaded into the app by tapping 'Check for Updates' near the bottom of the Home Screen.
    The update can take a few minutes and you are recommended to use a stable Wi-Fi connection, but no need to worry if your connection drops mid-way through you can just wait until you are back online and restart the process. Once this is complete the app will operate fully offline (except Google/iOS Maps) and does not need an internet connection at all.
  2. To get directions to a crag's parking area, you can tap the directions button which will allow you to load the default Maps App with the GPS coordinates as your destination and your current location* as the start.

* The app will only use location data to to indicate your current position on the map, it is not used by us for any other purpose.
+ Directions and 'Online Maps' will not be available if you do not have a signal.
