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 spent two days in May scrambling with Mark as preparation for a climbing trip to the Alps. Mark's professionalism was obvious from the start and inspired confidence. I had a fantastic two days and would have no hesitation in recommending Mark and SMG.

I had the pleasure of being one of Mark’s students about three years ago for climbing courses in Europe and South America. His style of instruction and mentoring still resonates with me to this day. In fact, I have found myself using his methodology throughout my time working as a climbing instructor on a professional and personal basis. Over the years I have worked with other professionals in the industry and would not hesitate to put Mark up against the very best!
