TM is located quite far from the closest parking, and hence is also more quiet during weekends and other crowded days. The stone quality in Tierra media is also different from what you are used to in Albarracín. It's more crimpy, sharp and technical. Though there is a few roofs also for roof fans. Because the long approach, it's maybe not the most family friendly area. It's possible to reach from both parkings, either the main parking, taking a slightly longer approach, but less elevation meters. If you walk from Cabrerizo the approach starts with walking down and up the valley, which might a heavy start, but when reaching the other side, you already are in front of Black Magic 7C, from there it's an easy 5 minute walk to the main area. (Please do follow the recorded paths, you won't regret it).
Tierra media also offers a huge potential for new lines, both easy and hard. Bring enough food and water with you and you'll have an awesome day.
There is a massive amount of lines so it's hard to really even pick what lines you should try, but here is some to check out:
La ola 6C
Air france 6C
Periñan del campo 7A+
and this list would go on for about 20 more atleast, altogether Tierra media has to offer over 250 routes.
Please remember the basic rule, let's keep Albarracín clean, take all the trash with you, also the trash you'll see left after by others and don't leave any traces. And reserve enough time to get back to the parking before dark, especially if you parked at Cabrerizo.
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.
LIMITED ACCESS AND FORBIDDEN SECTORS
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:
Follow also the normal access rules:
-Park at parkings showed on 27crags
-Don't block any roads/passages with your vehicle.
-Don't leave any trash behind you and bury all your human waste.
-Respect the nature
-Brush away tickmarks and excessive chalk
-Don't climb with lights or when it's getting dark or before sun rise.
-Use only recognized paths.
-Don't make fires.
-Keep your dog on a leash and collect the dog waste
