Costa Blanca

Costa Blanca is one of the premiere hot rock climbing destinations in Spain. It is popular with climbers from all across Europe and even climbers as far as America regularly come here to enjoy the ample supply of 6th and 7th grade sport and trad routes in the mild winter mediterranean climate that allows pleasant climbing across the area in European winter.

A heady mix of cheap flights, winter sun, amazing rock climbing and low cost out of season accommodation has made Costa Blanca a popular destination for winter sun or hot rock climbing holidays. This is why we made it one of our key destinations when it comes to our coaching holidays. Spending around 3 months a year here we look to provide quality coaching and rock climbing holidays for anyone.

As part of our course we can provide accommodation and transport to the crags along with top flight coaching and instruction on the amazing climbs in Costa Blanca.

The Costa Blanca climbing area is spread out across a wide area of the south-east coast of Spain. As such it has a great variety of crags from easy single pitch climbing through to more demanding multi pitch routes and pretty much everything in-between. It is because of this that the area has become infamous with climbers seeking 5th, 6th and low 7th grade routes.

We base all our Costa Blanca coaching holidays in a self-catering villa with excellent facilities and access to the best crags the area has to offer. Our course generally run with a 1 to 4 ratio for the first two days and then a 1 to 2 ratio for the rest of the course.

Experience Required

Some climbing experience is helpful on our costa blanca courses. Although technically the climbing starts from around severe (f4), we will often get most people leading this by the end of the course.

If you are attending or wish to do some trad climbing then some knowledge of this would be of help, but again not essential.


Typical Day

A day out in Costa Blanca will typically involve getting up having breakfast in the sun and then heading out to a crag for the day. Whilst some of the early days on the courses are more group coaching and sometimes a 1 to 4 ratio. By day three the days will be tailored to your specific needs and out coaches will hand pick the routes and crags specific for you.


Airport Details

We pick up from Alicante Airport on the morning of the start of the course and drop you off on the last day of your course.
