In this discipline, it doesn’t matter what level you have, since we are always learning as we climb. It can be a movement, a sensation or a small detail that can make a difference. Anchors are previously attached to the wall by mechanical systems.

Traditional climbing

It is an exciting mode of climbing that allows you to travel through rock walls only with recoverable securing means that you place as you progress through the wall. Knowing how to use the material correctly and how to behave in the middle before the unforeseen events that may arise, is a fundamental issue to be able to enjoy pristine walls safely.


In this discipline, we do not usually climb very high to avoid serious problems in case of falls, since bouldering is slightly riskier than the previous ones. It can be done on a rock or on an artificial wooden surface. In Tenerife, you can always practice it on volcanic rocks.
