Guidebooks

Portugal, Rock climbs on the western tip of Europe

Portugal, Rock climbs on the western tip of Europe - pg. 34
A solid guidebook with clear topography that is well organised and covers bouldering, sport and trad. The book lacks detailed descriptions on the routes themselves, but this is probably a good thing for those with a strong on-sight ethic. The book is not essential for climbing at Meadinha as the meadinah.com website has far more information but the book is a worthwhile purchase for someone traveling around Portugal, however the price tag feels a bit high all things considered.
