La Cabrera is a mountain range located 60 kms at north of Madrid. Its highest peak is the imposing Pico de la Miel (1,392 m), one of the most famous rock climbing spots in Spain. In this tour I want you to join me and head up the amazing Espolón Manolín Route to its summit.

Madrid and its outskirts offer more than 55 places for rock climbing. A very popular area is La Cabrera, which is part of the Sistema Central, one of the main systems of mountain ranges of the Iberian Peninsula.

La Cabrera offers more than 300 semi-equipped mult-pitch routes for all level climbers to improve their traditional climbing skills. Its highest summit, Pico de la Miel, is a granite spur with perfect cracks and dihedral walls. We will reach its summit after heading up its most famous route: Espolón Manolín.

Considered one of the the longest climbing routes in Madrid, in Vía Espolón Manolín you will find a unique and very varied climbing experience: slabs, nuts and and vertical walls at more than 200m of altitude.

So, if you want to climb the amazing Vía Espolón Manolín and reach the summit of Pico de la Miel, please contact me! I am sure that this will be an unforgettable rock climbing outing for you!

Furthermore, the outskirts of Madrid offer many other climbing spots. For example, you can check out this tour that I’m offering in La Pedriza.

What people are saying about Eduardo Muntane



January, 2020

Eduardo gave us a great guiding and climbing experience around el Chorro which were tailored to what we wanted. He was also good at giving advice on how we could improve our technique and gave us climbs that ranged from fun to challenging. We stayed at his home which had all the amenities you need and is very comfortable. On top of all this, his driving was excellent and he would accompany us to the supermarket when we needed to get food for our trips. Highly recommend!

Eduardo was an amazing guide. I've been climbing for almost 3 years, and he taught me new techniques and knots that I had never heard of. All in all, it was a great trip.
