Description

Series of rock spires with routes up to 120m (360ft) and 4 pitches. Trad and sport, some bouldering in the El Capricho area. The backdrop is a bizzare high altitude desert with Mount Teide as a backdrop. Space agencies frequently use the area to test ROVs so that should give you an idea just of amazing the landscape is.
Sunny most of the time although due to the altitude the thermal sensation in winter can be low. One of the few areas where we see snow a few times a year.
The volcanic rock varies from great quality to absolute shoss fests.
Best avoided in summer due to solar exposure.
Recommended to get on routes early.

Getting There

Bus services aren´t very regular so a hire car is best. Drive into the Teide National park (there are three access points) and head to the Parador Nacional. Opposite you will see a pretty obvious parking area and the first of the rock spires, the most famous of which is probably La Catedral.
