21st to 28th November 2020 in Costa Blanca

Climbing every day in the sun

When it is raining in the UK 

Take off from the rain and get some well deserved Vitamin D

Beautiful surroundings 

The stunning limestone landscapes and light of the Costa Brava  is an inspiring place to be  

Amazing Accommodation

We have lovely hosts with a detached villa. Run by English climbers for climbing fans

Easy walk-ins 

We have fantastic rock just 200m from the road 

Improve your climbing

The Sport climbing equipment built into the rock makes it easy and relatively safe to push your climbing skills and move onto lead climbing. 

Spanish Limestone 

Challenging, grippy and incredible climbing fun

Spanish Rock is quite different from anything we have in the UK and Spanish rock climbing is different as well. Spain has these amazing clean limestone ridges extending for miles. On the rock faces developed for “Sport climbing,” prefixed protection is permanently attached.

This means there is a lot of climbs all of high quality in the same area and a fantastic midpoint between the safety of indoor climbing and “traditional” UK leader climbing which relies on the skill of the leader to protect the climb with temporary protection. 

We love climbing in Britain but always look forward to a dose of European sport climbing where we can challenge ourselves and enjoy the confidence of climbing with sport protection. 

It is the ideal place to learn the transition to lead climbing.

Lovely Accommodation

Accommodation in the mountains especially for climbers

We had heard lots about the Orange House and its lovely owners for years. It sounded perfect for climbing trips with a little comfort thrown in. So we visited while checking out the climbing venues and we were not disappointed.

The rooms are great, the site is beautiful and it is full of welcoming lovely people who all share a love of the outdoors and travelling.

The rooms are small with the largest being 4 beds, everything is clean, some rooms have ensuite. The village is 5 minutes away by foot for a beer and pizza, supermarket and pharmacy.

Nestled in the rocks a little paradise of its own.

Fantastic food 

Tapas, Pizza and cold crisp beer

We do a mixture of outdoor and indoor eating both at the site with their lovely cook and in the Spanish Villages.

Breakfast is continental with bread, spreads and meats but also cereal and toast if you prefer something more usual for us Brits.

Lunch is generally freshly baked bread and cheese (or vegan option) with local tomatoes and fruit.

Evening meals generally are traditional Mediterranean fare; lots of pasta, pizza, salad, paella and the like.

There is normally time for sundown drinks on the terrace (drinks you normally purchase yourself).
