All sport climbers wake up… Rockbusters are offering climbing with Adam Ondra – the World’s best climber – who’ll provide two days of on-sight and redpoint coaching in Siurana and Margalef. Expect a lot of climbing, expert coaching with plenty of Rockbuster’s fun.
The focus of your time climbing with Adam Ondra is strategy and mindset, to focus your climbing technique and improve your climbing. You’ll get plenty of direct coaching from Adam to fine-tune technical elements of climbing. You’ll also learn strategies for on-sight and redpoint climbing – all to put you in the mindset to flash a rock face the first time.
This masterclass climbing workshop of on-sight & red-point coaching is not for everyone. You’ll need to be proficient in 6c redpoint and able to send 6b on-sight at a minimum.
Spending time on the face with the world’s best climber is a unique opportunity and it’s inevitable that some of his skills will rub off on you. Long term, climbing with Adam Ondra will inspire your progression as a climber, as he leaves you with a focused plan for your climbing development.
In the evening, before the first day of climbing with Adam Ondra, he’ll introduce his on-sight climbing methods. Using a slideshow, commentated video, and photos he’ll give you a sound understanding of the theory with plenty of time for questions and conversation.
Day 1: On-sight
Adam will take the group to the crag and conduct a warm-up. Then he’ll add to the previous evening's discussion by giving a practical explanation followed by a demonstration of putting on-sight theory into action.
Next, it is your turn. Each climber will choose a route suitable for their ability and will attempt to climb it on-sight. Throughout the day you’ll practice on-sight climbing, Adam will be on-hand to provide tips and advice.
During the day the group will be filmed, and video will be used for further analysis later in the day. Adam will start by analyzing his on-sight attempt and, if you would like, he will analyze yours too.
Before you pack up for the evening Adam will discuss redpoint theory. Again there will be plenty of visual aids and an open discussion to keep it interesting and informative.
Day 2: Redpoint
Again Adam will take you to the chosen crag and get things started with a thorough warm-up. First up Adam will give a demonstration of putting redpoint theory into action on the face.
Each climber will choose an appropriate route to try to project. The goal is to send the route in two or three attempts. With valuable insights, Adam will coach you in putting the redpoint theory into practice.
In the evening there will be further video analysis with a breakdown of your redpoint attempts. Adam will look at ways you can improve, leaving you with areas to work on to ensure you keep improving as a climber.

We provide all the gear, but you will need to bring your own reasonably tight climbing shoes and harness. We have belay devices, slings, and helmets, but you might prefer to bring your own. 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 will need to stop in the store to shop for breakfast and lunch food for the week. There is equipped kitchen with a refrigerator in the place and close-by 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!
There is a basic shared accommodation organized by Rockbusters. Our main goal is to integrate you into the local climbing communities and for these purposes we use local climbing hostels, cottages, campsites, or places run by local climbers. Feel free to reach out to adjust these settings to your personal satisfaction.
