near Calp, Valencia (España)
Sierra Olta is a massive isolated lump of rock that is detached from the even more massive Sierra Bernia to its NW. Walking around and up this often sheer rock, some 600 meters high above the sea level close by, is an impressive experience. There are excellent views of Calpe and Penon Ifach, also along the rather pretty coast towards Benidorm, and then of the Sierra Bernia. Calpe lies at its SE foot and, also being close to the main N332, the walk is easy to reach. So it is a very popular walking area with a variety of paths, well signposted. The ascent to the summit is steep but manageable. The summit is an area of fissured sharp rock and ankle-supporting boots with thick soles are essential for this. Not recommended after heavy rain.
