Portuguese Rock-climbing Guidebook

The Portuguese Rock-climbing Guidebook has been finally published by Versante Sud. Authored by the accomplished Portuguese climber and route developer Carlos “Cuca” Simes and with photographs from Ricardo “Macau” Alves, this book documents Portugal’s climbing community and crags and further expose them internationally in three different versions/languages: Portuguese, English and German.

We are also delighted by the fact that the author has guaranted that part of the sales profits will be used to rebolt and requalify Portuguese routes.

“A guidebook that brings to light a compilation of most of the up to now ‘hidden’ Portuguese rock climbing potential; a big update of what has been written and further developed in the last ten years. From the western tip of Europe comes an extensive list of climbs to be enjoyed along 700km of beautiful Atlantic coastline and 200km of inland, charming landscapes.”
