Hoya Moros

July 9, 2010

Last week I went to an idyllic bouldering spot up high in the Candelario mountains of Spain.

At 12:30 AM, and after 4 hours driving, I and 3 friends started a 2.5hr steep uphill hike, being more lost than on the right path and finally arriving completely exhausted.

I was convinced then that no matter how good the climbing could possibly be it was not worth the effort.

I was wrong.

Hoya Moros is a gorgeous bouldering area with excellent climbing.  Crystal clear ice-fed rivers divide the valley.  Bright green lichen covers the rocks.  It is easy to forget the hardships of life while bathing naked and climbing perfect lines.

Here is a short video I made of the trip.



  1. Bom filme Dr. Plim, gostei dos muito ”details”!! BENGA…

  2. Aquilo era o rabo do Pena OUTRA VEZ???? Nao voltei atras para ver…mas suponho que seria o gordinho novamente como Deus pôs no mundo…

  3. Thx for the Video. Is it really 2.5 h hiking? And that every day?
