Boulder Albarracín

What is Bouldering

Bouldering is Climbing without a rope or harness in a lower height (up to 6 meters). You need very few equipment for Bouldering. Only Climbing Shoes, Chalkbag and a Crashpad (a mat that prevents injuries from falls). The length of the climb is quite short and as a result the difficulties are more concentrated. A higher level of strength and technique is needed than on a Sportclimbing route. But because of the uncomplicated nature of Bouldering it is very easy to develop these skills in a short time. Therefore many Climbers see Bouldering as the perfect Training for Sportclimbing. For us it is more than just Training. It is a way to learn new movements and techniques in a relaxed and playful way. And it makes lots of fun!

About Albarracín

In Albarracín you have over 1700 different Boulderproblems to choose from. You will find Problems in all kind of climbingstyles. From vertical faces or slabs to bulges and roofs, there is nothing you will not find here. In general its a bit easier to find a solution for the boulders than in "Fontainebleau" (the world famous area close to Paris,France). As a result Albarracín is perfectly suited for beginners or routeclimbers without much bouldering experience. The landing zones are mostly very good but sometimes you have to be a bit carefull. Nonetheless the area is one of the best to go with children as there are few ledges where someone could fall down. The village itself is a Unesco world heritage and has a special atmosphere which is not only for Boulderers very attractive but as well for Tourists. Here you can find good restaurants, bars and shops. Furthermore there is a bouldering shop in town which is called "Sofa Boulders".
You can either drive here by yourself with a car or fly to the Airport of Valencia. From the Airport we pick you up and drive the 200km together to Albarracìn. Another option is to drive with us from Siurana to Albarracín.
We will sleep in a Hostel close to the village. There we can enjoy breakfast every morning. The Accommodation and the breakfast is included in the price
