Sick of wet weather back home, I flew to Malaga in March for 3 days sport climbing with Climbing in Malaga. Learnt a ton from Luis, climbed till my arms were practically hanging off me, and went home with a suntan – best climbing holiday ever!
We are 2 girls and indoor climbers, that did a Learn to Lead course with Luis at one and a half hour from Malaga. After 2 days of shorter climbs and belay and gear placing training from Luis, on the 3rd day we share leads on a 8 pitch climb, with Luis climbing separately beside us, it was a huge thrill. Thanks to Luis for everything, you are the best!
This is my third time (trad) climbing with Luis, once in Jaén and twice in Malaga. I can’t recommend him enough – each time I’ve been picked up at the airport, driven to all the best climbs, stayed in climbers’ homes, ate in local spots, climbed all day and talked technique all evening. My climbing and confidence have improved hugely and Luis has taught me how to stay safe while climbing hard. Luis is a great laugh and a top, top instructor.
I did a climbing course in el Chorro last year and hated it, stuck with no transport in a house with a load of other Brits trying hard to be cool climbers, and two instructors for eleven of us which meant we only got to do one or two climbs each a day, an absolute nightmare. This year I went with a mate to Climbing in Malaga, just the two of us, got loads of climbing done, lots of great coaching from Luis, stayed in a lovely hotel owned by a climber and had the climbs all to ourselves – Heaven, and it still worked out cheaper than the other company! Cheers Luis.
I really enjoyed my trip to climb with you in Málaga, Luis. You’re a great guy and a gifted instructor – I learnt more from you in those four days than I have in the last five years. You could charge ten times as much and it would still be worth it. Thank you amigo!!
Thanks Luis for a wonderful few days of climbing. You were absolutely brilliant, a pleasure to spend time with and a pure professional. I am coming away from this a far better climber, having learnt a huge amount from you. The weather was brilliant, the food was delicious and the climbing was incredible, what more could one ask for? I will definitely be back to climb with you again. Highly Recommended.
The highlight of our family trip to Spain was the weekend spent climbing with Luis outside of Malaga. He was an awesome teacher, patient with myself and my wife, and our kids loved him. Thank you Luis for the fond memories, for the beautiful places you took us, and for making our first ever climbs so safe and enjoyable.
Second time back to Luis now, this time with two mates. Luis taught us to climb as a proper team of three, showed us what we had been doing wrong and, more importantly, how to do it right. Unbeatable service and his prices are really good value for what you get. See you next year Luis.
