CHRISTMAS SPORT CLIMBING CAMP 2020

19.12.2020 - 26.12.2020

Get festive on our Christmas Climbing Holiday. Eat, sleep and breathe climbing on this killer camp. Join the team for a week or two on one of Europe’s best crags and test your fingers to the limit. With top coaching and advice to boost technique and strength.

For the Rockbusters team climbing is not just a sport, it’s what we eat, drink, breathe and sleep - it’s what we live for. Our Sport Climbing Camp gives you the opportunity to get a taste of what we mean and become part of our climbing crew.

 

The main focus of our Sport Climbing Camp is on quality and quantity of climbing, so it’s aimed at climbers with some experience but we are not pushing fit and motivated beginners away. We will provide all necessary coaching and go through all safaty and technical details so everyone is able to do as much climbing as possible and enjoy climbing with each other. We will push you to achieve more during your stay,arming you with all the necessary techniques and safety measures before you try anything new.

 

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. 

 

The refuge/mountain cottage we stay in is located in quite a remote place about 4 km walk away from the small village of Sella. It is surrounded by the rock, which means you can park your car, forget about it and focus just on climbing and the pretty scenery. Rockbusters will also make sure you will get to know the best places in the village to eat and have a drink as in way, it forms a part of a good climbing day. Believe it or not but the little village of Sella has a lot to offer even when you have finished your climbing.
