My adventure with Pere and Valencia Climb today was beyond what I could have hoped for. It was incredibly fun, the views of Tallat Roig where we climbed were stunning, and I think very highly of my guide, Pere. He was clearly very experienced,... patient and knowledgeable, and was encouraging but didn’t push me. I did a full day (six hours) and for what you pay, it was such a fantastic deal. I climbed A LOT! I highly recommend Valencia Climb for any climber, whether you climb grade fours or nines. The team did a really good job of figuring out my experience level and shaping a day that suits me well. I know Pere does canyoning excursions too, and if I had more time in Valencia I would book a canyoning trip with him in an instant. There are no shortage of wonderful things to say about this company. I’m so glad I found out about them! If you’re like me and visiting Valencia, want to climb, and not sure where to go or how to get your hands on equipment, definitely give Valencia Climb a call.read more

Great day out climbing at Gandia with instructor Javi who was super friendly, relaxed and great at sharing pointers on technique and giving my partner confidence to lead belay safely outdoors for the first time. He took some great picture for us too... and recommended other crags for us to try on our other climbing day this trip.Prior to climbing communication with Valencia Climb was great. Initial enquiry super simple over Whatsapp, and it was a breeze to make the arrangements over email once we'd decided to book. Just what we were looking for. Thanks Valencia Climb! 😀read more

Professional and knowledgable guides for the local climbing areas.We had an amazing day sport climbing at Jerico—great problems with great views. We are frequent gym boulderers so our guide quickly taught us safe technique and brought us to... problems at a good difficulty level. Nacho, our guide, had a breadth of knowledge of the local area and helped us adjust our plans as we liked.We'll be looking forward to coming back!read more

We had a very cool experience!! The trainers were very calm, had a great sense of humor, they were good in explaining and adjusting the lessons to our needs. We just needed a fresh up and they did that perfectly! We went climbing by ourselves the... next day without any problems. So thank you guys for that! We still think that the price is pretty high as we had other great lessons including renting material which were much cheaper.read more

100% recommendable!! Amazing experience with Valencia Climb. I booked three different climbing activities with Pablo:- Top-rope climbing: My partner and I had different levels and experience on climbing and Pablo explained to us the basics of... climbing techniques and how to belay. We spent the whole morning with him in Jerica, a gorgeous crag next to the Palancia river.- Leading course: One on one activity combining rock climbing gym and outdoors environments. Again with Pablo, we went through the different lead climbing techniques, the different knots, the ropes, quick draws, belaying devices and stations, we practiced how to fall while lead climbing, different vocabulary...etc. Everything needed for me to be confident and autonomous on lead climbing once the course is over.- Group climbing: Outdoors climbing activity with other climbers of my same level reinforcing everything I learnt in the previous activities and sharing experiences and tips with other people.About Pablo, (the climbing guide) I have to say he is chilled, patient, professional, and he motivates you constantly to improve your skills. I felt safe at any time climbing and also regarding Covid-19 measures. Face masks worn all time, use of liquid chalk, respecting social distancing etc. Besides, he can teach you in either in Spanish, English or Catalan which is definitely a plus if you come from outside to enjoy the Spanish climbing spots.I will definitely book again when I come back to Spain!read more

I spent two amazing days climbing with Pablo at Valencia Climb and going to some beautiful places outside the city. Pablo is a ton of fun and very knowledgeable. There are routes for every ability level from very easy to extremely difficult. I... highly recommend getting out of the city for a day and climbing with these guys. It is a wonderful experience.read more
