Trad Climbing Course in Málaga

What is Trad climbing?.

The history of climbing back to the nineteenth century, but would not become popular until the early twentieth century. Back in those days, climbing was considered as part of the activity in the mountains. In these days, free climbing was the only way forward and when difficulties exceeded the ability of the climber, aid climbing was used. In both cases the fixed equipment is almost non existent or non­existent at all, is the climber who place it in the wall.

Aid climbing relies on the help of equipment to progress, while free climbing depends on the skill of the climber. Both styles are necessary in the mountain.
