Description

The Aragonese Pyrenees in Bielsa, Spain, have scenic surroundings that include dramatic canyons, red and yellow stripes all along the limestone walls and amazing flora covering it all with shades of green.

That is why I think this is the perfect spot for beginners to start the exciting path of rock climbing. If you join this 1+ day trip, you will be able to learn how to climb a vertical wall and add a new skill to your adventurer résumé. You can also stay with me one more day and learn to lead a climb (help yourself with an elastic rope while climbing).

The incredible rock around Bielsa will be our lab for you to run your own experiment. I will be there to teach you basic rules and techniques and help you to achieve new goals in the activity.

Even though this is a trip for beginners, you need to have at least a fairly good physical condition to join.

Spend just one minute to book 6 hours (or more) of pure rock climbing. You will not regret it!

If you already have a solid experience in the activity and want a more demanding challenge, I can offer you this rock climbing week in the most incredible spots of Northeastern Spain.

Cecilia was a phenomenal guide! I highly recommend everyone check out Riglos with Cecilia because the rock quality was so unique and fantastic, and she found the perfect route at the level I requested (5.9). Cecilia is so knowledgeable, encouraging, and fun to climb with. I hope to come back and climb with her again some day!

Had a very good time with Cecilia at the Cap de Long. It was foggy and supposed to rain the first day, so Cecilia was kind enough to reschedule and pointed out a superb climbing spot to us on the Spanish side of the Pyrenees. Along our multi-pitch route Cecilia showed us how to set up a stand, secure ourselves, rope management and how to belay from the top.

Thank you for this experience! Cecilia did a perfect job introducing us to the basic techniques of big wall climbing, always taking into account our individual skill levels. We felt super safe all the time and can´t thank Cecilia enough for even making sleeping in the portaledge possible although the weather wasn´t that stable. We totally recommend this trip with this super friendly guide :)
