* Explore the town of Salobreña on a very unique way

* Get the best views of Granada on this via cordata adventure


Join me on this very unique experience in the town of Salobreña, in the municipality of Granada, Spain. Explore this beautiful place, on this via cordata adventure.

Via Cordata is not simply via ferrata, nor pure mountaineering. It is an amazing combination which requires using ropes and other elements of both activities. And one of the best places to practice this unique sport is on the wall known as La Canal, in Los VadosSalobreña.

This route is for intermediate climbers, but beginners can also take it. However, participants must have previous climbing knowledge, especially on ascents and progression. Also, in order to participate you should at least be familiarized with the material for rock and sport climbing.

Moreover, the top of this wall will offer the best and most hypnotizing views of Salobreña, an enchanting spanish town that lies near the Mediterranean sea. It borders the lovely municipalities of Almuñecar, Itrabo and Motril, Molí Cazar, Vélez de Benaudalla. So, the sceneries you’ll get all throughout this journey will simply take your breath away.

What’s more, the weather here is beautiful, with warm days of no more than 24ºC during the summer, and around the 12ºC on winter. And of course, it’s blessed with a refreshing breeze carried all the way from the Mediterranean ocean. So, what a better place to embark on this via cordata adventure than this spectacular town in Spain?

Do you want to join me? Send me a request. I promise it will be an amazing adventure you’ll cherish for life!

Please note that to join this activity you must have a good physical level and  previous climbing experience. If you don’t, you can join this 2-day introduction to rock climbing in Granada.

What people are saying about Mariano



A fantastic guide and we really enjoyed the experience



Fantastic winter ascent of Mulhacen together with guide Mariano Frutos in mid-January. Very warm and sunny day and extremely icy on the top but fantastic views all the way to the Moroccan Rif mountains. Few people on the mountain and a lot of Iberian mountain goats. Mariano was excellent and Pablo at Explore-Share made the logistics easy and straightforward as always.



This was such a great day. I'm so glad I booked through Mariano's company!



Was great!



Nice guide - great professional. Nice day-trip. Recommended!
