Escape to the world class climbing destination of El Chorro, Andalusia, Spain.
This picturesque area is a popular winter sun destination for climbers from all over.
World class sport climbing, reliable(?) weather systems, ease of access, great food… why not escape the confines of the indoor wall as the UK weather starts to deteriorate?
Considerate bolting (not too far apart) makes for a friendly introduction to leading. Or for the more experienced it allows the comfort and mind space to concentrate on perfect movement and improving technique. A range of grades and styles allows you to develop your climbing in a targeted way.
Aims for the course
The focus is always tailored to your requirements but can cover…
- An introduction to sport climbing
- Indoor climber to outdoor transition
- The road to being a safe and independent outdoor climber
- Push your grade in a structured and progressive way
- Simply enjoy getting loads of climbing done with our experienced and fun instructors
Even if your eventual aim is to be leading ‘trad routes’ in the UK this is a great place to go. A solid foundation of climbing technique should result in a far more stylish, controlled and, ultimately faster progression when it comes to learning to trad. climb in the UK.
There are crags here that cater to the full range of climbing abilities from grade 5 up. The crags tend to be relatively easy access with most approaches taking about 5 – 30 minutes. From our recommended accommodation the closest crags are 5 minutes’ walk away. It feels great to roll out of bed and straight onto world class limestone… wearing a t-shirt… in December. Winner.
How your course will run
The courses start from four days in length, a long weekend. We can happily add extra days, for up to 7 days of instruction (plus a rest day after the first 4).
It’s all about sport climbing here. The nature of sport climbing lends itself really well to a focus on improving efficient and safe movement skills on the rock. And you are free from the additional challenges of placing traditional protection.
Each evening we’ll discuss the day and make sure everyone is happy with the progressive plan for the next days. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to build on skills and techniques most appropriate for your level.
There are huge climbing benefits to be gained from a focused sport climbing trip.
