Since 1996, Rockfax has been synonymous with the Costa Blanca area of Spain. The three editions the triple Costa Blanca, Mallorca, El Chorro book helped make the area a firm favourite amongst travelling climbers and since then, the 2005 Costa Blanca book has cemented its reputation as one of the best destinations around for great sport and trad climbing. It is the quality and variety of the climbing that keep people coming back time and again: bags of classy sport routes across the grades, some superb multi-pitch sport routes and magnificent trad climbing in a mountain setting. The Costa Blanca has long been the best known Hot Rock winter sun venue for climbers wanting a break from the grim northern winter. The reasons the place became popular in the first place are same reasons that this popularity has endured; easy access, loads of quality accommodation, a benign winter climate, and of course an amazing amount of fantastic climbing on everything from roadside boulders to magnificent mountains. This is the fifth edition that Rockfax have produced to the 'White Coast', with over 22,000 copies already sold over the years. This completely revised and updated volume builds on the success of the earlier ones with increased coverage of the most popular areas and the addition of several new crags. With nearly 4,000 routes and a complete new set of crag shots and action pictures the book stays fresh for years to come.
