Rock climbing day in La Pedriza, near Madrid

We had a great experience. Hector worked with us to plan a trip that was appropriate to our (non-beginner, non-pro) skill level, and really fun. He even managed to find a place to climb that mitigated the late summer Madrid heat. He was very friendly and helpful and an excellent teacher. We will definitely book again next time we come to Madrid.

We had a fantastic time with Palan! He is a really good guide: calm, knowledgeable and good teacher! Level was also spot on that we were really challenged, hence could improve without it being to much. Much looking forward to go with him again when back in Madrid!

Great moment spent with Palan, not only a guiding pro and an outstanding climber but also a nice and kind human being. We had a super experience in the superb scene of La Pedriza, which is just 50' away from Madrid. Highly recommended!!!

Rock climbing trips in La Pedriza, Spain

Rubén is an amazing guide and loves climbing more than anyone I've met. Our summit of El Yelmo in La Pedriza was phenomenal and he made sure to prioritize safety from the beginning. It was an amazing climb, I can't wait to climb with Rubén again in the future. Mil gracias Rubén!

I did three multi pitch climbs with Palan. We spent an overnight in a hut in the alpine. I often climb with guides, Palan is by far the best balance of calm, diligence and friendliness. Safety was never a concern, his gear placements and belays were perfect for a 100kg climber. I will be using Palan in the future for more of Europe. 10/10

Peña Sirio: Rock climbing day in La Pedriza, near Madrid

Eduardo was an amazing guide. I've been climbing for almost 3 years, and he taught me new techniques and knots that I had never heard of. All in all, it was a great trip.
