1 Day

May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep




  • Enjoy a full day, sport climbing course in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of Spain.
  • Learn a number of useful skills, from basic knot tying to climbing in top-rope.
  • The climbing area is located very close to Lugros.


Sport climbing is a thrilling activity. It is also an activity you can do in every corner of the globe. Thus making it a potentially life long endeavor that can take you around the world, providing you with experiences and views you will never forget. However, sport climbing is a challenging activity, particularly when you try to do it on bigger and more arduous cliffs and walls. As a result, it is important to learn the fundamentals of sport climbing. So, for a full day, I would like to guide you through a detailed, fun and informative sport climbing course in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of Spain.

This course will cover a great deal of skills and techniques that are crucial for safe and successful sport climbing. Some of what we will cover includes the following.

  • Basic Knots

  • Knowledge of climbing equipment

  • Basic gestural techniques

  • Securing and safety in climbing

  • How to safely move in both top-rope and first step

We will provide you with all you need during this course. And while this is an introductory level course, prior climbing experience is advantageous. Furthermore, participants should be in good physical condition.

If you would like to improve your sport climbing skills, while also learning some new ones, this course is for you. To enjoy it for yourself, just send a request.

I also offer a full day mountaineering course in the Sierra Nevada, near Lugros, that focuses on navigating challenging terrain. You can participate in that course here.

About the guide

UIMLA Mountain Leader | AEGM Tour guide Mountain / Mountain Leader Sports Technician

Since I was a kid I travelled around the hills and peaks of Sierra Nevada range in south Spain, going up and down the valleys that made me in love with the mountains world.

Steadily, I discovered other ranges of the Iberic peninsula such as the Pyrenees and Picos de Europa, and then I travelled to the peruvian Andes, the Amazonas jungle, the Moroccan Atlas...

Thanks to these experiences and two years of studying to become a professional mountain guide, I started a new project called Nevalia mountain guides.

I hope I can help you to make true your mountain dreams!

Our guide was changed on us last minute. Before the hike, I had missed the messages from the guide because the notifications went to a weird place in my email inbox. Because we messaged him late, he cancelled on us. I was worried we wouldn't be able to go on the hike at all. Luckily, we ended up going with a different guide, Victoria, who was lovely.

This trip was amazing and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in hiking. We went on 9 and 10 of December but we were lucky and the weather conditions was really good. The nature and the view were fascinating. Alejandro was an excellent guide! Very professional and a very nice guy. All these elements combining together made this trip an unforgettable experience!

That was a blast, I truly had a wonderful time! Everything went just perfectly, thanks a lot to my guide Alejandro for your professionalism, patience and flexibility. I am looking forward to my next trek in the Sierra Nevada (or elsewhere, who knows?) and will definitely think of Nevalia

Alejandro could not be more perfect for anyone looking to summit Mulhacén! He planned our winter ascent impeccably and although we were very lucky with the weather (blue skies and epic views - if a tad chilly!), our successful and joyful climb was very much down to him and his attitude . I would also add that as far as mountain refuges go, Mulhacén's is a goodie :)
