Climb Spain

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 Europe.

New for 2017!

The area

World class sport climbing, reliable weather systems, easy access, great food… why not escape the confines of the indoor climbing wall this winter?

Considerate bolting (not too far apart) makes for a friendly introduction to leading for the first time. For the more experienced it allows the comfort and mind space to concentrate on good movement and improving technique. A range of grades and styles allows you to develop your climbing in a specific, 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 good place to start. 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.

Accommodation and food

We can make recommendations for both accommodation and food but you are free to find your own place to stay in or near by to El Chorro. The cost of accommodation and food is not included in the price. You’re paying for professional climbing instruction and coaching for the duration of the trip.

We can pick you up at Malaga airport. If you have your own transport we can meet at the accommodation the night before your course starts.
