Sport Climbing Course in Málaga

Sport Climbing Course in Málaga

Popularised in Europe in the late 1970s, Sport climbing is a form of rock climbing using man-made protection, such as bolts permanently fixed to the rock, as opposed to traditional climbing (or Trad climbing for short), which requires using the rock’s natural features to place your own removable protection as you climb. Sport climbing lets you climb harder than you normally would in Trad climbing, as you carry a lot less weighty equipment, and there’s a higher degree of safety compared to Trad climbing. It’s a great way to make the move from indoor to outdoor climbing, and can be of great help when learning to lead as you progress further. Luis Perez Corral is one of Malaga’s most renowned climbers and instructors and has almost 25 years’ experience Sport climbing in Malaga, with close to a hundred first ascents and new routes to his name.

Málaga has one of the best climates in the world, with average temperatures ranging between 13°C (55°F) in January and 25°C (77°F) in July, and very little rainfall. The abundance of places to rock climb, with climbs facing in all directions, and the varieties in temperature between the coast and the higher mountainous areas means it is possible to climb here year round if you know the right place to go on the right day. In the winter months, when northern Europe is cold and wet, Malaga is a warm, sunny paradise that attracts climbers from all over the world. Climbing in Malaga has the local knowledge to make sure you eat, sleep and climb in the very best spots that very few visiting climbers ever get to see.
