After a couple of days in the local crags, we climbed some amazing multi pitch routes would definitely go back, you could spend months there and not climb the same route (although maybe you would want to). So much fun, the best people and the food by yesica is delicious. Thanks Kookoo!

After this I have fallen in love with climbing outdoors and I already plan to go back to climb in Spain. Feeling completely supported by our guide Mara, not only did I push myself beyond what I thought was my level of ability but I have began to build confidence and have learned new skills which I can now take with me in future climbs. Starting early we were provided delicious fresh food prepared by a lovely local ladyJessica( who should have a recipe book published)She packed us full of smoothies, grains and cake for breakfast. Along with this we had a lunch prepared for each day. And my god wee needed it!! We climbed in various places in the local areas, all bolted, everything felt very safe. Huge options when it came to looking for places to climb… my only complaint.. I wasn’t there long enough. The plan Mara has set slowly built up our levels of climbing- my favourite being rappelling into a sea cave and then climbing back out. Challenging, mentally and physically, however I had the biggest smile on my face when I finished and saw the sun setting over the sea. Everything about the trip was memorable, what else could you ask for.
