FAQs: Rock Climbing in Spain

What should I know about Rock Climbing Spain?

In El Chorro you can practice sport or classic climbing in 200-meter high walls, with both single and multi-pitch routes. All of them offer premium rock quality and are open to all levels of climbers.

In addition, the Malaga landscape is exceptional, with the sea on one side and huge limestone rock walls on the other.

Why should I choose Spain for my Rock Climbing adventure?

Where the sun does not hide

Malaga has an average of 305 days of sunshine per year. So you can enjoy outdoor adventures at any time, or even take a bath on the beaches of the amazing Costa del Sol.

Cultural celebrations

Enjoy, sing, dance and get mixed with locals in one of its many cultural events. There are celebrations throughout the year, from the Easter processions to the famous "Feria de Málaga", which takes place in August.

Gastronomy

Have a drink on the beach and ask for a malagueña fry, in which you can't miss the anchovies. For those who prefer the spoon, we suggest the ajo-blanco, the Antequera soup or the gazpachuelo.

It was a very easy climb for me although I had an injury on my toes so that was acceptable. It was cold in town so we went to the sunny side of the wall. he taught me a lot about how to tie ropes and using equipments etc. was good.

After the pandemic delayed our planned trip to Spain, along with our climbing day at El Chorro, we lost our money on a few pre-paid tourist activities. Unlike other businesses, Explore Share and our tremendous guide honoured our reservation and the magical day of climbing at El Chorro went off without a hitch! Our guide, Antonio, was communicative, and when we arrived ready to climb, he had everything we needed to ensure we would have a fun and safe outing. There is truly nothing quite like clipping into an anchor and looking out over the sun-seared valley from the cliffs of El Chorro. Antonio was patient with us as we re-found our climbing technique, and instructed us on rope protocol and beta when necessary. I recommend anyone who wants a climbing guide to do it with Explore Share. -Nick

Excellent guide service. David was really good with the kids (6 and 9 years old) and new how and how much to challenge them. We had a wonderful day.
