Rock Climbing

Rock climbing is a sport that is growing in popularity every year; some are attracted by curiosity, entertainment or by a desire to pursue other activities in the mountains. Traditional Climbing takes place in a mountain environment without the prior equipping of routes with protection or anchors, the climber advances placing his protection equipment (friends, stoppers, rock pitons, etc.) as he goes.

 

Sport Climbing is a variation of Traditional Climbing in which the routes are previously equipped with bolts for the climbers' protection; this enables the sport to be enjoyed with a higher degree of safety, minimizing the risk of accidents.

 

We offer a basic introductory course to introduce beginners to the sport. Topics covered include:

Familiarization with equipment: rope, harness, carabiners, pitons, etc.

Practice and use of knots and anchors.

Technical order.

Energy saving techniques.

Visualization. Where to look?.

Top-roped climbing.

Lead climbing.

Use of equipment in Traditional Climbing.

In these courses we make use of routes that have bolted by our own guides to ensure your safety and well-being
