Why Enjoy a Sunnier Climbs Holiday

Sunnier Climbs is all about helping you have endless hot rock climbing experiences, it is born out of our passion for relaxed days, climbing in the sun back home in North Wales. However over recent years we have found ourselves drawn to warmer climates and staying for extended periods in Spain and beyond so we can climb in T-shirts all year round.

Quite simply we want to have you along to enjoy our ‘endless summer’ in Spain or anywhere that has a good supply of sun and good quality rock! Our dream is to provide great escapes in the sun for people over the long cold and wet winter months. We are both passionate about sharing our love of climbing, our passion for coaching and that absolute essential ingredient…..sun!

Check out our selection of holidays which for this 1st year will mainly be across Spain with some of our other favourite International destinations appearing later…

How We Work

We don’t offer a range of different levels of courses like ‘an introduction’ or ‘advanced’ week, rather we like to keep things simple! Book a course, fly out, meet us and then we’ll match your aspirations against the time we have together. Maybe you just want to get some rock mileage under your belt, maybe work out how to achieve that next grade, learn to lead, or you could be a complete beginner who’s realised that learning to climb in the sun is way better than somewhere cold and wet!

Our courses typically run over a 7 day week or a 4 day weekend, although we are happy to try to accommodate however many days to meet your needs. This typically involves a pick up from the nearest airport on day one and then travelling to a base which will be some form of self catering accommodation.

The broad plan will be to treat the course as a classic Winter Sun climbing week, searching out the best routes, the sunshine, and absorbing some of that laid back Spanish atmosphere. Whether you fancy sport climbing, going on a multi-pitch adventure or even some trad climbing, then there are plenty of options for everyone.

We have climbed in the areas we use for several seasons and have a great knowledge of all the best crags and climbs to help you have the best climbing trip. In some areas Mark has actively worked on the guidebooks that we will use.

About Us

Paul Poole

Reaching the summit has never been the reason why I climb, but rather the journey that it takes me on, although admittedly it’s pretty exciting to reach the top! Experiences are what memories are made of and it’s the shared experiences that motivate me to be on the crags and  in the mountains. I have always believed my main reason for sharing my passion for climbing was all about providing opportunities for people, along with teaching skills to become more reliant and these are still some of my core values.

The smiles, the sights, the emotions, the learning, the physical challenges, sharing these experiences is what it’s truly about for me. It’s all about the adventure.

Mark Reeves

I have lived and breathed rock climbing and mountaineering for the last twenty years. It is the last thing I think about and night and the first thing that crosses my mind in the morning. I love to share those experiences and enjoy nothing more than developing individuals as rock climbers to help them reach their own goals.

No matter what the grade, It is the feeling of climbing that I love and the vicarious joy of helping others succeed.

I live a dream lifestyle where the mountains and adventure are right on my doorstep and been lucky enough to spend over 12 months in the last 4 years working across Spain teaching rock climbing and developing mini-guidebooks to the different areas. What I offer isn’t just a course in how to climb but an adventure.


Both of us have worked in the outdoors for over 20 years each, are based in North Wales and run Paul Poole Mountaineering and Snowdonia Mountain Guides respectively.

We are both experienced Mountain Instructors with teaching and coaching backgrounds.
