We have been checking out some amazing climbing areas in Spain and beyond for both work and pleasure. Some are already popular with British climbers whilst others are a little more off the beaten track. With that in mind, we have several areas of interest to people seeking winter sun to escape the Great British deluge.
Come and join us as we bask in the winter sun on our amazing 7 day Costa Blanca Sports Climbing Holiday. The concept of Hot Rock climbing has been around for years and what we offer is a way for you to get away and get the best out of your week in the Winter sun so you can return to the UK more motivated than before to push on through those damp winter days and long nights at the wall.
Chulilla is a small but important sports climbing area in the Valencia region of Spain, it is an increasingly popular area to head on holiday. It’s main appeal is soft grade and a who host of 7th grade climbing. However, Chulilla is also a beautiful place to climb with some really spectacular routes in the 6th grade as well.
Chodes was one of the first areas bolted in Spain for Sports Climbing. As such it makes a great place for a Spanish climbing holiday away from the crowds. A 5th and 6th-grade climbers paradise, Chodes and Calcenca offer a great variety of climbing in what are fair compact areas.
Our Madrid Rock Climbing Holiday takes you to one of Spain’s hidden gems. With granite slab and crags resembling Yosemite’s Tuolumne Meadows, it really is a place you must visit. It also has La Patones with vertical pocketed limestone for when you need a day bolt clipping.
This Picos De Europa Rock Climbing Holiday is a great way to experience the best trad and sport climbing in this magical region of Northern Spain. With both roadside sport and mountain trad climbing the area really is a climbing nirvana.
I've been a client of Mark's on multiple occasions. He has decades of experience climbing and it shows. He doesn't just show you how to do things, he helps you to understand why and when you should do them. My climbing grades reached an all time high under Mark's instruction. Thats really all that needs to be said.

I had the privilege of climbing with Mark for two months and I quickly learned that he possess the perfect mix of rock and book smarts. Not only is he one of the best climbers I have ever met, but he has the education and training to translate complex physical and mental climbing concepts into material that is easily absorbed by those who are new to the sport. At the same time, I was also able to observe Mark engage his skills in ways that challenged even the most seasoned climbers in my group. Do yourself a favor, climb with Mark and find out why he is a great instructor and guide!
