There are no perfect rock shoes out there, but there are the right ones for you. They fit well, have the features and the soles you need, and specifically they suit your favorite rock type and climbing style. There is a problem though. With so many makes and models, how can you possibly find the right one to make the most of your climbing?


You might be one of the lucky ones and have already found them, but if you're still not sure Rockbusters are here to help. We have teamed up with Evolv to provide a range of their shoes for you to try and there is no better way than to actually go out there and use them for a couple of days and see how they fit.


But that’s not all…. 

Have you ever thought about how light, more comfortable, and more adjustable harnesses might feel? Or an ultralight helmet? What about using a different belay device? We have a great range of Singing Rock demonstration gear for you to try. 


Did you know that most climbers have never used a kneepad? This can be your chance to find out how it feels to wear one. We have the Send kneepads, the most popular brand out there. See how much more rest you can get out of a kneebar, and the difference it can make for a crucial move. 


We want you to explore and push your climbing as far as you can, use our demonstration gear, and, most importantly, have a great time. Use of gear from our Test & Demo Centre is already included in the course, so you can feel free on trying as much as you can. How cool is that?


It’s all part of being a member of the Rockbusters community.

reasonalby tight climbing shoes / harness / helmet / belay device / extra screw gate carabiner

We provide most of the gear, but you will need to bring your own climbing shoes and harness. We have belay devices, slings, and helmets, but you might prefer to bring your own you use to. We strongly suggest bringing a down jacket, a hat, a rain jacket, a pair of comfortable approach shoes, a headlamp, a sleeping bag, and a backpack big enough for carrying lunch and gear to the crag. 


Upon arrival, before you get to the place of your final destination you may stop in the store to shop for breakfast and lunch food for the week. There is equipped kitchen with a refrigerator in the bungalows and small shops to replenish supplies.

There are plenty of restaurants and bars to have dinner. Communal dinners can be organized if required.

More info will be provided after booking/inquiring!


We are happy to assist you to book accommodation in Rodellar according to your requirements. Get in in touch with us at or WhatsApp at +34678243573
