    The introductory climbing course I offer was planned for those who want to give their first steps in rock climbing.

    During the course I will teach you the necessary skills and techniques to use the specific equipment. Therefore, you will be able to enjoy this activity with greater security.

    The introductory climbing course can take place in different rocky spots of Spain such as the Pyrenees, Sierra Nevada and Sierra de Madrid. Those mountains will help you to know how to move your body in pitches fully equipped for sport climbing.

    In order to take the best from this program, you will need to bring the following equipment:

    We will provide the rest of the climbing gear (ropes, slings, blockers, etc.). Besides, my team and I will help you in any technique you need to improve.
