The IMC will be heading to Sintra in Portugal on the 7th November for a long weekend of trad and sport climbing.

Departure 7th November – various flights are available including a 6:15am start which would allow a 9:30 am arrival in Lisbon and getting some climbing on day one.

Return 11th November – again various departure options with early (9:30) or mid afternoon flights (15:45) available.

”A giant granite slab with a separate tower that sits on top of the hill overlooking Sintra, a very popular and picturesque town to the west of Lisbon.

Main slab – This is classic slab climbing at its best, a 45 meter high lump of perfect granite, giving splendid climbs that have all been recently re-equipped with stainless steel bolts – at very sensible intervals. Some of the harder slab routes demand invisible holds, but the easier options are tremendous fun and quite pleasant excursions.”

Excerpt from Jongo Wobbly Guide Book

There are additional crags which offer similar climbing including, Cascais, Reguendo de Fétal, Baía de Meixilhoeiro and Capuchos.
