On Gran Canaria there are different areas where one can practice Traditional Climbing. Ayacata is the best place for it. There you can practice both Free and Aid Climbing and there are some Sportive Climbing sectors as well.

In this rock paradise we can find multipitch routes that ascend through fissures of volcanic conglomerate. Here are the oldest routes on the island. The most popular ones are reequipped and in perfect condition, others may have an occasional rusty nail, but for the most part are all in good condition. This makes Ayacata a dreamland for traditional climbers of all levels, from beginners to advanced, who can enjoy a route at their level and the beautiful natural scenery.
The routes start from the town, and diagrams can be found in the bar "Casa Melo", located in the Ayacata intersection.

Here you can see the most popular classic routes and sectors:

    La guía solo se puede consultar? No se puede comprar?

      Hola Faina,
      Actualmente no hay ninguna guía de escalada tradicional. Si te refieres a la de deportiva, puedes adquirirla aquí.

    Good afternoon

    I will be in GC for a week starting tomorrow 🙂

    I am a fairly new climber and currently lead 4+ / 5 sport and HS / VS 4b trad

    Are you planning to organise any climbing days in Ayacata or similar locations during my stay?

    If you are which days, what type of route and what costs?

    If you could let me know asap so I can decide whether to pack my rock shoes or not.
