Chodes and Calcena – 7 Day Holiday

Chodes and Calcena – 7 Day Holiday
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.
 

Chodes is Two hours east of Madrid just outside Zaragoza near the Morata del Jalon. The amazing climbing area of Chodes is spread out either side of a river with cliffs facing in nearly all directions so you can seek sun and shade as requires. The area offers highly technical climbing which will hone your technique and footwork.

30km drive up the road is Calcena, which has recently been redeveloped. This means there are loads of fresh climb on a variety of different limestone type. Including some fun routes up free-standing towers.

As such a trip to combine climbing in both Chodes and Calcena will give you a fun week away in a truly Spanish climbing destination. Away from the tourist areas, it is relatively cheap to eat out and the food is not that expensive. The climbing is fantastic and it feels a million miles away from the busy crags of Costa Blanca

Unlike most climbing areas in Spain this one is very Spainish and offers climbing from September to November. Transport and accomodation is provided if required as part of this course.
