Climbing is a sports practice that, in its classic modality, consists of climbing or going over rock walls, steep slopes or other natural reliefs characterized by their verticality, using almost all recoverable belay means, including artificial.
Climbing seeks the maximum difficulty of movements so it requires intense previous preparation. In climbing, the difficulty of a route is marked by the combination of several factors: the inclination of the wall, the size and shape of the grips, the distance between them, the resting points and the total number of movements.

Other details of the experience:
Before climbing, a preparation is made explaining the place, what will be done and how the equipment should be used to guarantee safety. After this first phase, a physical warm-up is carried out.
Then the instructors make a demonstration of how to climb and step by step, the client goes through the experience. On the rock, there are different ways to climb, always starting with the easiest, unless the client is a little more experienced and can demonstrate it before. In case the customer is able to reach the easiest summit (12 meters high), it would be placed on roads or routes with higher degrees of difficulty.
In climbing, the degrees of difficulty are denoted by numbers and letters 5a, 5b, 6c, 7a up to level 9. The wall being climbed has a level from 5a to 8a. To go up a level 5a it is not necessary to be in full physical shape, you just have to trust yourself and not fear falling. You will always be insured with equipment from the best climbing brands worldwide.
In the event that the client cannot continue climbing, I can let go without any fear, because he will be left hanging in the same place so he will not suffer from any blow since he will be secured with the “top rope” climbing system. The wall where the climbing is made is equipped with all the conditions to withstand 2 tons (2000 kilograms) of impact. You will enjoy the wonderful feeling of the ascent and descent.
Customers may bring a camera for more experience and it is recommended to wear comfortable clothes.
