Tenerife Rock Climbing Guidebook

Tenerife has been a popular sport climbing destination for some time now. A combination of excellent routes on volcanic ignibrite rock and winter sun between October and May, have attracted climbers from all over the World.

The majority of the climbing on Tenerife is single pitch sport climbing though many of the crags also have a number Trad routes as well.  The red volcanic rock consists of numerous pockets of all sizes, positive edges and cracks, providing many crimpy, technical routes.  There’s slabs, overhangs and everything in between.

The new Tenerife rock climbing guidebook (first since 2011), has just been published covering 17 crags, of which the majority are in the south of the Island around Arico.  In fact Arico is the centre of climbing in Tenerife, with Arico Gorge being the largest climbing area, plus there are a further 10 crags within a short drive of the village.  The guidebook covers almost 1,300 routes across a wide range of grades.  There are 290 routes up to F6a, 530 routes between F6a+ and F6c+, 301 routes between F7a and F7c+, plus 140 routes from F8a and above.
