Below we are listing the official Granada climbing areas for you, ordered by distance from our house 😉
But there are more great climbing spots closeby, which officially belong to the areas of Malaga or Jaen and are also just a one hour drive away, which makes them definitely an option for a full day of climbing. There is for example the huge sector of Reguchillo, or the famous area of Villanueva del Rosario, which got worldwide attention thanks to it´s 82 meter long 9b “Chilam Balam”.
Piñar (3 sectors / ~90 routes)
Los Vados (19 sectors / ~280 routes)
- “Tajo del Canal”, “Limbico” and “Carretera”: no climbing between 01.01. – 15.06.
- “Tajo de la Virgen”: no climbing between 15.11. – 15.06.
Lanjaron (4 sectors / ~35 routes)

How to behave – Do`s and Dont`s
Even if most climbers are quite conscious, in big groups you can quickly forget about the basic rules… and if we don`t respect the environment or the local conditions, at some point there will be restrictions, people will close access to walls on private properties, or things like that. None of us wants that.
