Christmas Climbing Holiday

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.
