Climbing holidays in Spain

PanoramaRock climbing Spain at the climbers Paradise in the Alicante area

Rock climbing at the Costa Blanca is varied and extensive. Moreover the quality of the routes is great. Well-bolted slabs, tufa-pulling, trad climbs and sea cliffs, all solid limestone. It is a good place for a climbing holiday, with plenty moderate routes and even starter grades at most crags. Take care though, because a well-used easy route on limestone can mean slippery grips, so it may pay off to climb either a less used one or try a more moderate route! In winter, when the temperature during a sunny day usually averages 20°C, conditions are ideal. The few bad weather days are easily spend in one of the picturesque villages in the region, or just relaxing at our Refugio of course.
