Climbing trip ( with option of integrated spanish learning)

We have the perfect fun, climbing holiday trip for you – experienced local guides, great accommodation, tasty local handmade food and lots, lots more.

Come climbing in Spain with Meraki and enjoy the sun, blue sky and unbeatable climbing crags in the world famous climbing haven, El Chorro, Spain. There are over 2000 bolted routes to choose from with grades starting at French 4 all the way up to 8c(S – E9).

Our climbing trips are guaranteed to improve your technique, increase your confidence and develop your knowledge and skills.

 

Our local guides, have bolted many of the routes and are legends around the local El Chorro climbing community. They have a huge depth of knowledge about the routes, the different crags and will be able to adapt each day to the specific needs of the group. Our guided climbing gives the opportunity to improve lead climbing, fall techniques and mental strength.

We also have trips for more proficient climbers who are looking for specific coaching to continue to improve style, movement and experience. A new multi pitch climbing trip has been added this year. Our groups are small ( maximum 5-7 people). This enables your guide to modify each trip to the requirements of the group.

Our climbing in Spain trips include accommodation, guided climbing with local experienced guides, yummy buffet breakfast and a tasty picnic style lunch at the crag. The package also includes climbing equipment, and transport to and from the crag when necessary, although most of the crags are within walking distance.

A typical day consists of a tasty buffet breakfast at approximately 9am. Climbing will take place from 10am until 16pm (approx. 6 hours). The particular crag will be decided when the group arrive and will be dependent on time of year, ability and experience of the group. Spanish learning (optional) will take place throughout the day and you will be encouraged to learn some new Spanish climbing phrases at the crag. After your climbing session, you will be free to chill and relax at the pool, have fun on the slacklines or go for a breath-taking sunset hike. In the evenings, you can enjoy a tasty tapa at a local bar or get together with the group and eat at the Finca.

Depending on the weather, it may be too hot to climb in the middle of the day and the timetable may need to be altered with an earlier start or later in the afternoon into the evening.

Accommodation will be in a dormitory at a wonderful rustic location just below the main crags. Upgrades on sleeping arrangements are available, please contact us for more details.

On the rest day (does not apply on short courses), you will receive an amazing gift from us, see below for more details.

If you are interested in learning or improving your Spanish in a fun way, you will encouraged to learn how to order a breakfast in Spanish and have fun practicing new vocabulary and conversational skills. When you are at the crag, your guide will introduce some essential Spanish phases to help you communicate with the local climbers.

All this makes this course a fantastic way to meet new friends, become inspired and motivated, and learn new skills at the same time.
