About ValenciaClimb

The idea of ValenciaClimb borns the year that Piotr was living in Valencia as an Erasmus student. This year Piotr began to know well the climbing around Valencia: the crags, the climbers and the endless possibilities of this sport in this region of Spain. He first felt in love with the orange limestone walls of the breathtaking canyon of Chulilla, and then he started to discover all the others amazing areas like Sella, Montanejos, Gandía, Albarracín or Buñol. Thus was how Piotr set up ValenciaClimb.
