Get started in sport climbing in Mallorca
The Introduction level climbing courses are intended for anyone who has never practiced climbing or who doesn’t know the necessary techniques to carry out the activity safely. The courses are intended for participants aged 13 and over. For younger people, we recommend a family climbing baptism.
The initiation course consists of three days of approximately 5 hours of activity/day. Interested people can choose the course they want to start with, based on their previous experience (Introduction 1, 2 or 3). You can do only one day of the course, or you can do the full 3-day course.
Once the Initiation III course has been completed, the participants will have the necessary tools to practice climbing independently.
A course designed for people who want to learn rock climbing. During the session we will practice the basic maneuvers of sport climbing, safety means and basic progression technique with the rope from above (Top rope).
In addition to knowing the different climbing modalities, we will know and use the basic material, and each participant will be tested with routes of different levels. Future climbers will be the protagonists of the session and we will practice a climbing day in which the instructor will verify that the maneuvers are done correctly and safely. In addition, we will know some of the areas to practice climbing in Mallorca, always minimizing the environmental impact.
We will agree on a meeting point, depending on the time of year, the number and level of the participants and the weather conditions (Palma, Pollença, Alcúdia Manacor, Escorca…).
