The Place

With 800 kilometres of coastline, over 300 days of sunshine a year, fascinating historical cities, two national parks, and the best tapas in the world, Andalucía is really a dream holiday destination. Throw climbing into the mix, and, well, what more could you want?

You've probably heard of the city of Granada, known for its fascinating historical monuments such as the Alhambra. But have you heard of any of the crags around the city? If limestone, crimps, technical faces, slight overhangs and beautiful views are your thing, then you're in the right place! The province is home to almost 20 crags offering thousands of routes, with grades ranging from the 4a to the 9s. During the trip, you will get to explore some of these incredible crags, such as los Vados where you'll find over 600 superb quality routes ranging from 4a to 8b+ just a stone's throw from the beach. And when your muscles start to get sore, head into the city of Granada where your guide Migue will show you round some of the sights, take you to the best tapas bars and for an evening of flamenco. ¡Olé!

Granada - Climbing, Culture, Tapas

Climbing, culture, sunshine and good food - this is what the Mapo Tapo Granada trip is all about! Below is a brief description of the itinerary, subject to change depending on the experience and preferences of the group:

  • Day 1. Arrive at Granada bus station between 12 and 1pm, where you will be met by your guide Migue. You can either fly directly to Granada airport and take a bus into the city, or take regular buses from Seville or Malaga airports. Head to the B&B to drop your bags, then back into the city for a guided promenade around Albaycin and tapas on one of the most beautiful terraces on earth.
  • Day 2. A full day of climbing in Los Vados, an incredible crag with over 600 routes. Option to head to the beach for sunset and/or a post-climb swim :)
  • Day 3. Start early and head for a morning’s climbing at Alfacar or Cogollos crags near the hostel. In the afternoon, you will head back to the city for a guided visit the Alhambra and Flamenco show.
  • Day 4. A full day of climbing at Moclin or Montefrio, depending on the group’s level. Finish at dusk and head to Granada city centre for some beers and dancing to round off the trip.
  • Day 5. Breakfast on the terrace, pack your bags and head off to the airport. Drop off at Granada bus station at 10am.

Migue Sancho, certified mountain guide and local climber, will accompany you for the duration of the trip. He left a job as a civil engineer in Australia to return to his home rock-paradise and train as a guide. He is also the host of the Rock&Joy podcast, the leading Spanish-language climbing podcast, so has plenty of climbing knowledge and stories to share!

Our basecamp

Climbing Skills

No minimum level is required for the Mapo Tapo Granda trip. A certified climbing guide will be there to help you throughout the trip's duration. For those who are new to rock climbing it will be the perfect occasion to approach the discipline and fall even more in love with it. Experts can master their skills with the help of local professionals.

Liability

Mapo Tapo selects crags and local partners with the utmost care. For any inaccuracies, however, we can not accept any liability. Rock climbing is a risky sport that takes place in nature. Ultimately, you are fully responsible for the choices you make. Mapo Tapo recommends that anyone who does not have sufficient knowledge and skills not to go outdoor alone.
