Just to say Hi and introduce myself.

I am a keen climber who is also a climbing instructor. I'm lucky enough to live and work in two great areas - Snowdonia, North Wales and Villanueva del Rosario in Malaga province, Spain.

If anybody wants info on any either of these two areas then just contact me - Snowdonia is really well documented, but the climbing around Villanueva del Rosario is still quite unknown. I am trying to - slowly - document it; see the Climbing Areas in Spain page on my site for topos and info.

Hi Silvia, welcome on 9b !

Nice self presentation, very good move !
You really have understood the real "party" spirit !

Regarding Villanueva, You are welcome to participate the referred topo guide group I already created.

For sure, I will fly very often to Malaga, for me is very low low cost ... ;-)

Are there good crags for hot summer ?

Thank You in advance

The Vva Rosario crags are pretty good in summer - we are at over 1000m and the local climbers have bolted a whole range of crags facing a whole range of directions, The cave of Chilan Balam is pretty much always in the shade and the walls of El Corral (7b-8a+) and Ventana (6c-8a) are in the shade after midday. Loja is also pretty good in the summer.

Thank You Silvia,

it seems very interesting, where is possible to buy the guidebook referred to Villanueva, El Corral and Ventana ?

27cragsclimbervoice8a and many others are amazing sites, but sometimes, expecially if you worked a lot to envision, bolt, clean routes or boulders, you want to monetize a little your efforts.

9b can help you in this aim.


As you can see here, in 9b there are many " topo groups ".


You can add a discussion in every "topo group".

In your discussion you can edit and publish your own climbing topoguide, as a "paywall", a "destination page", requiring climbers their payment by credit card or paypal to access and read, even on SMARTPHONES (iphones, android phones, ...)


After having paid, climbers can see, save and print your climbing topoguide.


In this discussion you can add:


1) PHOTOS regarding one specific SECTOR (of routes or bouldering, dws lines)


a) "PHOTO topo":

It's very easy to edit a photo topo:

- upload a photo of a rock in a topo group discussion

- drawn the lines

- write names and grades (an example…
