What you'll do

This introduction to rock climbing day will take place in La Pedriza, in the heart of the Sierra de Guardarrama National Park. Conveniently located just one hour away from Madrid, La Pedriza is one of the best rock climbing venues in Europe but, incredibly, it is mostly unknown outside of Spain.

La Pedriza’s imposing granite domes make for a surreal landscape but also offer the opportunity for some really incredible climbing. Hundreds of domes, cliffs and crags, shaped by erosion into all kinds of magical shapes, provide routes for all climbing levels - including really challenging ones up to 8c+.

The town of Manzanares el Real, from where our day trip will depart, is easily accessible on public transportation. From here, crags can be reached within minutes! Hiking, mountain biking and bird watching are also very popular activities in the area.

Here at La Pedriza, climbing is not about strength but about using your feet, and that is part of what you’ll learn during this intro program. After a brief introduction to the equipment we’ll use, we’ll spend the rest of the day on the rocks. Our ultimate goal is for you to go home at the end of the day with a big smile on your face and a desire to come back for more.

This program is an amazing opportunity to climb in one of the best climbing venues in Europe. Contact us now and kickstart your adventure!
