Mark spent much of his twenties and thirties climbing all over the world. He has been lucky enough to repeat classic routes in Yosemite, Touloumne Meadows, The American Desert, The Kitchatna Spires – Alaska, The Cirque of the Unclimables – Canada, The Anti-Atlas – Morocco, Todra Gorge – Morocco, The Italian Dolomites and The Alps.
Across these places mark has climb managed to climb some of the finest routes up to mid-grade extreme routes. The holidays we offer in this section are on a max ratio of 1:2, and often have a feeling of adventure and unknown about them. As a result we find that the experience will be like no other you have had and will stay with you for a very long time.
Like all of our holidays we aim to pick you up at the airport and transport you to a basecamp for our climbing activities. The accommodation varies vastly between each course and you need to check each course for the precise details.
Bariloche and Frey is a fantastic area to explore for some climbing adventures. With Frey being a particularly fine granite climbing with many granite towers that dominate the high mountain valley. Lower down around bariloche and beyond are a host of sport and trad climbing areas to explore.
Riglos is one of the most famous yet infrequently visited climbing areas in Spain in the main because it is famous for the Fiesta Del Los Biceps on the Visera, a steep and very sustain 6c+ route. As such many people shy away from the area thinking the routes will be too hard. That simply is not the case, with several other less extreme towers and other easier sports routes Riglos should be on everyones bucket list of climbing destinations.
Todra Gorge is a remote area in Morocco that has been popular with climbers for many years. Its out of the way nature means that it is not a really a ‘clip-up’ destination like many of the sport climbing areas we visit. It has a really adventurous feel and definitely fits better into our climbing adventure holidays than our coaching holidays.
