The long weekend climbing trips in the Costa Blanca are great for people who want to go on a short climbing holiday. Fly on Friday morning and come back on Monday evening and you will feel you have had a proper break. The Costa Blanca's beautiful blue sees and the green hillsides and vineyards in the Jalon valley have an immediate relaxing effect. Wake up in the morning to the sound of birds, have your breakfast outside in the warm sunshine, and go for a beer and delicious meal after climbing.
Long Weekend Climbing Costa Blanca
During the long weekend there will be three days of climbing. On these days our certified climbing instructors will take you to the best climbing venues in the area, to suit your climbing level and aspirations, as well as the weather conditions. The Costa Blanca has an incredible amount of rock so there is always a crag to suit everyone, all year-round.
The climbing weekend can be totally tailored to your preferences. Climb as many routes as you like. Learn to lead climb. Work on improving your climbing technique and on moving more efficiently. Or focus on other aspects of your climbing that you would like to improve, such as fears, insecurities and other mental aspects of climbing. Simply let our climbing guides know and they will aim to give you the best possible climbing experience.

The villa has a very large lounge with dining area and fire place and a fully equipped farmhouse style kitchen.

The beds and mattresses are of high quality to assure a good night's sleep in between long and intense climbing days.
The villa is located in a secluded and quiet area in the beautiful green hills behind Lliber, yet within walking distance of amenities. The nearest restaurant is about a mile away. The bars and restaurants on main square of the picturesque village of Lliber are at 2,5 km. It is 4 km to Jalon with a big choice of bars, restaurants and a supermarket.

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.

Guess you could say I’m hooked…
This is now my way to start the outdoor season for the year and I get so much from it.
Excellent guiding and coaching by Sergi, tailored to needs of everyone in the group.
Super simple logistics - just sort your flights and you're looked after from landing till you depart again.
I'm now psyched for this year's climbing as well as ready to take on work and life challenges, having refreshed my soul.
Thank you all.
