FULL

Get festive on our Christmas Climbing Holiday. You’ll crank some of Europe’s best crags and there won’t be any crackers in sight. At this time of year, the crags are empty, so you can climb as much as you want.

Get festive on our Christmas Climbing Holiday based in Sella. Here you will climb some of Europe’s best crags and routes with no crackers or turkeys in sight. Our Christmas climbing camp is a great opportunity to take advantage of the empty crags during December. Treat yourself to some of the best rock and sport climbing Europe has to offer.

Christmas is that festive time of year; unwanted presents, annoying family members, board games and over-indulgence. Fortunately at Rockbusters we can't offer you anything like that. Instead, We can offer intensive climbing in Europe's best crags.

Sella, the location of the Rockbusters Christmas Climbing Holiday is a special place for rock climbers. It is a unique climbing area in the Costa Blanca region with hundreds of sport routes and slabs to explore. In the summer the climbing can be slightly crowded. However, during December and the Christmas period the crags are empty and peaceful. You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing the route to climb.

Climb as much as you want and we’ll provide you with our expert one-on-one coaching, video and photo analysis. The focus is on developing and improving technique and will provide a great opportunity to give you a good headstart for the new climbing year.

If you already have some climbing experience (or none at all but are bursting with enthusiasm!) and are looking to take it to the next level then this is the perfect time to do it.

Our Christmas camp focuses on:

Coaching with slab/vertical ground to improve footwork and climbing efficiency

Balance and foot placement to develop better technique for more confident climbing (leading comfortably F5 or more)

Intensive coaching on overhangs and steep sections to develop strength and confidence (leading comfortably F6c or more)

On-sight/red point aimed at climbers who are confident enough with their balance, footwork and have already acquired the basics of climbing technique

Beginners will be taught the basics and fast tracked by our coaches.

Guiding you to some of the best crags and climbing Sella has to offer.

On the Christmas Climbing Camp we focus on having fun and racking up as much face time at Sella's climbing crags. Whatever your level we will set challenging routes to improve and develop skills for climbing.

This is a Rockbusters course so you it’s all about the climbing. We live and breathe the sport but we also know how to have a good time. However as this is Christmas it’s an extra special reason to party. Rockbusters is more like a family than a tour company so you’ll feel right at home at this special time of year.

We promise not to give you any unwanted presents!
