Chulilla Sports Climbing Holiday
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.
Having climbed here last year we feel that for certain clients then Chulilla will be a fantastic opportunity for them to have a Sports Climbing Holiday aimed at getting them to redpoint their first 7th grade routes. With this in mind, we really do recommend that people looking at this particular holiday are climbing at least 6b sport. This is because without climbing at this level the climbing will just be too hard.
The result is this really is a holiday for those wishing to focus on performance. With it comes some of the best opportunities for our coaches to help you reach your true potential by helping you warm up and focus on redpoint routes at your limit.
