New Spanish Topo Maps Launched
Detailed outdoor maps for popuar Spanish walking and climbing region hit the shelves.
Posted: 12 June 2009
Hot on the OM editorial desk today are two new topographical maps
covering the Sierra
Aitana in Spain
and area described by leading outdoors
journalist Ed Douglas as a 'top winter walking and climbing
destination' and handily located just inland from Benidorm so great for
Spoiled as we are by the Ordnance Survey, it's easy to forget that
other countries often lack comparable mapping and by all accounts
existing maps of this area were pretty dreadful.
The new maps have been put together by a local guide. Jose Miguel
Garcia, using a variety of sources and are aimed at walkers, climbers,
mountain bikers and anyone else using the outdoors.
The maps include waymarked footpaths, climbing areas and access,
parapenting areas, caves, tracks of all kinds and much more alongside
all the contoured details you'd expect. They look excellent, clear and
easy to use and a brilliant starting point if you fancy a walking or
climbing trip to southern Spain.
We've actually climbed in the area ourselves and it's lovely,
particularly when the UK is in the grips of wind and wet. In particular
there are some fantastic mountain rock routes on the Puigcampagna just
to the north of Finestrat.
The maps come in a plastic cover. More details from www.terraferma.net
