Can’t find the time for a whole tour or weeks of climbing? Then why not come and join the party for a weekend of finger shredding fun in Spain with the Rockbusters crew? It’s intense but you’ll fit in plenty of climbing.

People lead busy lives. So it’s hard to fit in a whole week of climbing. We understand it’s not always easy to find time to do the things you love. Stupid bills need paying. But that’s why we offer our Rockbusters climbing weekends in Spain.

Sport climb and boulder for two days solid, squeezing in as much as you possibly can before it’s time to go back to the daily grind. We hit up the best Spanish climbing destinations, including the legendary Siurana, Sella, El Chorro, and Albarracin. The maximum ratio of climbers to guides is never more than 6:1 so you’ll get plenty of help improving your technique, as well as loads of climb time. Our coaching is all about efficiency, so it fits nicely with the whole idea of this quick weekend climbing break.

What you’ll learn:

  • What equipment you need for climbing and how to choose it properly so you’re always safe on a climb

  • How to belay, set up top-rope, lead and other technical aspects to build you knowledge base

  • Using a guide book so you can better know a climbing area

  • Climbing calls and communication so you won’t sound like a rookie

  • Basic movement skills for improved efficiency and better climbing

  • Cleaning anchors and basic understanding of outdoor risks so everyone goes home safe

Even though it’s only a weekend break, you still get the full dose of Rockbusters hospitality and fun. Of course, we’d love you to stay longer but we’ll do everything we can to make sure you have a killer couple of days both on and off the rock.
