PORTUGAL - SPORT ONSIGHT BOULDERING - CAPUCHOS
POSITION: Deep in woods at the top of the Sintra massif. Completely hidden from view. You need a guidebook to find these boulders. In good weather the blocs are lovely, but can stay wet after rain. Blocs up to 6 metres high, and some of the landings need several pads and a spotter.
20 Blocs with limited appeal, but worth a visit for the classics of the area. Quiet and challenging. More blocs in the area to be developed, but you will need time. Good for the 4a-6b/c boulderer.
We cover all the classic problems here in this enchanted forest. The woods and situation are the prime reason for a visit here.
