Techos Albarracín
Techos is a very big area with a big amount of classic lines. It is a bit to walk to techos, but when you get there you won't regret it. Techos is also unique because it's possible to climb several problems even when raining, because of amazing roofs over the actual boulders.
Some classics to try would be

The list goes on and on, so there is definitely something for everyone in this area, slabs, roofs, overhangs and huge dynos. Choose your style and have a nice day.

Remember the basic rule to keep Albarracín clean, don't leave any trash or traces behind you.


Albarracín is the Spanish Fontainebleau. The red colored sandstones offers good roof problems, slabs and overhangs in over 10 sectors. There is enormous potential to open new routes, but it is very important, that the local rules are obeyed.


Climbing has been limited in Albarracín area due the bird nesting and protecting the nature. Most sectors are open, but the following sectors are closed since 2014 (Climbing is FORBIDDEN ALL YEAR AROUND in these sectors):

upper part of Valle de Madera
Anywhere within 30 m of the road or rock paintings.
The aim of the restriction is to protect the natural bird nesting areas. These restrictions have been placed cause some climbers did not respect the nesting periods, that had been placed before. It is important that everybody respects 100% the prohibition in order to keep these areas safe and quiet. Following these rules is also important, so that there wouldn’t come more restrictions and bouldering in Albarracín would be possible also in the future.

These are the all year around open sectors on their own crag pages:
