ANDALUCIA CLIMBING

Got the wintertime blues and want to get outside and climb? We have perfect solution!

Join Rockbusters in Spain's Andalusia, the most southerly extreme of the European mainland and home to some of the top winter climbing destinations on the Continent. Climbing here is as rich and varied as the local culture. From athletic overhangs to technical slabs, from tufas to crimps. With average rainfall very low and 5 - 6 hours of sunshine even throughout the winter, this is the place to go for some incredible climbing conditions when the weather is nasty elsewhere.

And there’s more to it. Forget about famous Spanish climbing destinations like Siurana, Margalef or Chulilla that get so much attention of the international climbing community. As well as a huge amount of visitors, unfortunately. Join us for this trip and discover a less known, non-crowded and superb-quality climbing spot you may have never heard of.

 

We’ll spend our time in Jaen, a Spanish province known as the largest olive oil-producing region of the world. Let us show you why Jaen is well worth visiting for its climbing though it lacks the reputation of the easily accessible areas in the north of the country. This place is much harder to get around without any knowledge of Spanish and thus it gets far less visitors and no crowds at its crags. The great thing is that it has much better rock than a lot of the well-known spots. 

With us, you can enjoy a week or two of great climbing in a breathtaking landscape shaped by mountain ranges surrounding the city of Jaen and the never ending olive groves.

As with all our trips, we welcome all novice and expert climbers excited to climb, and cater our coaching to each client’s individual needs. If you have any questions about your specific skill level, please contact us directly.
