Hoya Moros, one of Spain’s premier summer bouldering and climbing areas, is for sale and may be at risk of closure. The area is popular for trekking, trail running, mountain biking and ski mountaineering and a petition has been launched to safeguard the area’s future.

The spectacular summer bouldering area Hoya Moros in central Spain may be at risk of closure with the current private owners recently stating their intentions of wishing to sell the land. Located at an altitude of 2000 meters and lying about 3 hours west of Madrid, the area currently hosts over 1000 granite boulder problems up to 8C and numerous multi-pitch trad climbs up to 200m in height.

Hoya Moros is appreciated not only by climbers though: it sits in the wild and uncontaminated mountainous region area known as Sierra de Candelario and is a popular destination for hiking, trail running, mountain biking and ski mountaineering. Although this biosphere reserve is inserted in the European Red Natura 2000 network of protected areas, local activists are concerned that should the area fall into private hands, then access would be forbidden.

A petition has been launched to safeguard the area’s future and climbers are asked to contribute by signing as soon as possible since a coalition representing the outdoor community will be meeting with the local government next week.
