Rock Climbing, Tenerife

The Island of #Tenerife is an absolute must for fans of traditional Climbing.

 The huge number of volcanic formations that have eroded over time have left rugged Rock Faces, creating a unique area for this type of climbing. There is a great collection of rock faces in the Teide National Park, which stands at over 2000 metres above sea level.
There are also many beautiful rock faces in the National Park such as La Catedral and the Roques de Garcia. These are the most visited on the island offering over 40 different routes. The Roque de la Grieta or the Torreón Figueroa, on the rim of Las Cañadas, also offer first class routes.
Other rock faces that one can climb are Las Ánimas and the Roque de Enmedio, both in the mountains of the Anaga Massif, above the picturesque village of Taganana.

There are many base camps on the island where you can get the best advice and equipment :-

Villa de Arico is the meeting point for local and international climbers and the beating heart of climbing in Tenerife. Besides being the centre of climbing, it also offers all amenities you might need. Restaurants, bars, supermarket and some other shops are all within walking distance and the beach is only 7 km away for a refreshing dive after your climbing!"
