CHULILLA CLIMBING COACHING, SPAIN

In winter I head to Spain. Why? It's warm, it's sunny, and it's an absolutely amazing country to climb in.

Chulilla not only has awesome long sport climbing pitches, but it's a lovely, beautiful place to be with a few nice bars, places to eat and grocery stores.

It's also an ideal place to push your grade, especially as the bolting is usually super friendly.

SELF RESCUE FOR CLIMBERS

Do you know how to look after yourself and get yourself out of trouble if something didn't go to plan? Can you get an unconscious climber safely off a route or ascend a rope if you're on a sea cliff and unable to climb out?

This intense day will give you lots more skills for your toolbox!
