Rock climbing consists of ascending a sheer cliff that is more or less vertical. There are 3 different disciplines; traditional climbing, sport climbing and bouldering.
With traditional climbing it is necessary for climbers to take along their own specialist material in order to fix anchors and secure themselves to the rock. The climber also has to work out a suitable vertical route.
Sport climbing relies on permanent anchors of guaranteed quality already fixed to the rock in a set route to ensure that climbers cannot seriously hurt themselves if they fall.
Bouldering is climbing without any kind of rope or security anchor. They are typically short routes of up to 5 or 6 metres in height and climbers usually place a crash pad on the ground should they fall.
Climbing in the Sierra de Guara Mountains and Canyons Natural Park is regulated. Please consult the regulations.
