Description

The province of Huesca, in Northeastern Spain, is a great spot for big wall climbers. This Spanish dreamland will “rock” your world and give you the chance to explore its vertical faces.

This is a trip for those who are looking to improve or explore big wall climbing for the first time. It is also a great chance to practice self rescue techniques with the help of an experienced guide. But that is not all.

After a long day of big wall climbing, jumaring, hauling, and practicing guided and tyrolean rappel, we will overnight at the rock itself, on a portaledge. There, you will be able to take your dreams even higher while gazing at the most amazing night sky.

In the morning, after a healthy breakfast, we will practice self rescue techniques to learn how to be safe while climbing.

Keep in mind that you need prior experience in climbing to sign up, as well as a good physical condition.

The clock is ticking! Decide now to book a few exciting days facing the big walls of Huesca, Spain!

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 :)
