Sergio Pastor Serra started climbing in 1997 inspired by his brothers who introduced him to bouldering. Nowadays he is climbing with more commitment and passion than ever. When you travel to Spain, you could find Sergi climbing in the Costa Blanca or travelling around with his van trying a boulder problem, projecting some amazing overhanging routes or trad climbing multipitch routes.
As a sports climber Sergi has many grade 8 routes to his record, but he is also well established on multipitch climbing and bouldering. Besides that, he provides training programmes for a variety of climbers in various disciplines. Sergi is always focused on coaching, experimenting with new methods and training routines in order to improve your climbing.
Sergio Pastor Serra holds the Spanish qualification ‘Nivel II – Técnico deportivo en deportes de montana y escalada’. He is fully qualified for single and multi-pitch guiding, for sport as well as trad routes.
Sergio is a great instructor…
Lesley was really helpful with the detailed information package and responded quickly to all my questions.
There is only one little improvement I would suggest. The meeting time at the Alicante airport was too early in my opinion. We had a full afternoon and evening free without any programmes apart from the food shopping.
The whole weekend was a great experience though with lots of climbing and great people.

The holiday was absolutely brilliant…
If I was going to make any criticism, it would have been nice to have a bit more fridge/cupboard space for food. As there wasn't any room for my stuff by the time I came to unpack my shopping. But this really is nitpicking. Even the showers were good (hot and powerful) which makes a lovely change and the whole villa was spotlessly clean.

Prior to the holiday I was almost a complete beginner…

Rock & Sun provided an excellent service…
The location, on the Costa Blanca was fantastic. A really beautiful place with lots of fantastic crags, and something different to try every day.
Our instructor, Sergi, was an excellent, patient coach who worked really hard to ensure that everyone got something out of each day despite the range of climbing experience and ability.
Although on the "holiday", Sergi did lots of coaching throughout the week. I feel like my climbing has really improved as a result. From having had no formal teaching on climbing techniques before and just trying as hard as I could to get up a route. I learnt lots of important stuff about route finding, footwork, and the most efficient ways to climb something. I hope to put this into practice back home!
Best of all, I got to lead routes that were harder than I've ever led before. So it's onwards and upwards from here!
Thanks so much Sergi and the whole of the Rock and Sun team.

I did not make the goals I had set myself…
It was not an issue of the training from Sergio (which was outstanding) but the range of ability and motivation of the team made it difficult to tailor the course for everyone (but Sergio did a great job here as well). Next year I will try one of the other offerings such as the "Big Five".
