Type of Trip
Welcome to a very interesting rock climbing course for beginners in Santa Clara, an Amazon region in the northeast of Ecuador.
It’s my pleasure to invite you to this introductory course in Santa Clara. It will take 1 or 2 days, according to your wishes and expectations. I think it is a perfect occasion for those who want to take their first steps in rock climbing. Moreover, if you’re are curious and want to feel the excitement of climbing a rocky wall in a natural environment, this is your chance!
When you start rock climbing you start to use your body and many other muscles you didn’t even know existed. And the higher you climb the funnier it is. But you must have some basic knowledge to do it in a safe way. That’s why I have planned this course in Santa Clara.
This workshop starts with the basic principles of rock climbing, knots, top rope and assurance techniques between two people. That way you will gain some confidence before the most important part of the course.
The other stage is to put into practice what you’ve learned. So, you will climb a vertical wall applying all the theoretical concepts and by the end of the course, you will be ready to pass a belay test of rock gym.
Now, you will be confident enough to move on to the next stage. That’s why, after this program, you can continue improving your techniques through this 6-day mountaineering course I am also leading.
So, contact me now so we can discuss and plan your next rock climbing learning day in Santa Clara.

If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
