Let Jordi, an UIMLA mountain leader, teach you all the basic techniques for sport climbing on this 2-day course. Discover this amazing activity and enjoy one of the most beautiful places in Europe: Andorra!
Mar, Apr, May, Jun, Jul
When the snow covers Andorra, it offers some of the best places for winter sports. But it is once the snow has melted and the green takes over, an incomparable beauty rises here. And it is precisely then, when you can practice sport climbing, one of the most fun activities anyone can do!
Sport climbing is simply a type of rock climbing. Unlike the traditional rock climbing techniques, it relies on anchors that are permanently fixed on the rock. So, the protection for the climber is fixed as well, instead of being removable.
Moreover, this amazing sport offers a more convenient ascent, using less equipment. And less technical skills are needed. Thus, it puts the emphasis on the strength, gymnastic ability and endurance over risk.
However, you will still need to learn some basic techniques. So, this trip combines some of the best spots, with all the information and practice you’ll require to master this amazing activity.
Some of the things you’ll learn in this 2-day course are:
Basic climbing vocabulary
Basic techniques and climbing moves
Material and specific equipment: how to use it and how to maintain it
How to tie the basic climbing knot
How to use the harness and ropes
The “top rope” technique
Please note that in order to join this trip you need a good physical condition, as the day will be long and you’ll require physical strength. The total course lasts 10 hours, spread in both days.
So if you are looking to get into this sport but you don’t have any experience, this is the perfect trip for you! Send me a request and join this sport climbing adventure in Andorra

Jordi was just great, very helpful and supportive. He quickly analyzed our level and adapted the tour accordingly. He even offered to bring us to an other via ferrata nearby after the introduction tour. Great instructor and guide!
Jordi Salles is patience and understand the needs and requirements of client very well! He will go an extra miles to ensure clients meet their target in terms of what they want to achieve! This is one of the best hiking trips I have been through so far among all my hikes! Thank You!
The tour hour was short for half day. We had expected longer one, though. So, maybe you should indicate 2.5 hours in your information. However, we really enjoyed the tour, and the tour guide Jordi was really nice person. He knows well about the mountain & the nature in Madriu valley. He taught us a lot of things. Thank you very much!!
We did Tristaina Peak hiking instead of the advertised tour. It is a little challenging. However, for intermediate hikers who do not mind climbing up and down, this is highly recommended. Our guide, Jordi Salles is absolutely wonderful and professional. He cares a lot about our safety and he also cares about our objective in what we would like to achieve. This tour was a life-time experience for me and I am very happy that I did it. Thank you very much!
Jordi was a great guide!!! Thanks for a wonderful hike.
