Qué, ¿hay ganas o no?
Y es que esta experiencia de barranquismo en Río Verde, en pleno Parque Natural de la Sierra de Tejeda, Almijara y Alhama (cerquita de la frontera entre Málaga y Granada), además de ser una de las más buscadas, es la que más disfrutamos nosotros.
Y no es para menos; todo lo que hemos puesto en esa lista de ahí arriba es verdad. Mira->
Looks great, doesn’t it? Come on, let’s see how this experience unfolds from start to finish.
How is this rock climbing beginner level in Nerja?
We’ll meet you at the bus station in Nerja at 10:00h. Remember to come well rested, you will need a lot of energy in order to climb ;). Once there, we’ll introduce ourselves, jump into the van and go to the heart of the Natural Park of the Sierra de Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama, the scenenary of our vertical adventure.
First of all, and as a proper warm up, we will have a pleasant 45-minute hike. We will walk along a path surrounded by trees and aromatic flowers, green landscapes flanked by mountains and rather unique geological formations, explained in a pleasant and fun way by our guide, who knows the area like the palm of his hand and is as entertaining as they come.
When we arrive at the starting point we will have a small explanation about the materials, techniques and safety needed to perform the activity. Don’t worry, because we will tell you everything and since we are a very small group of 3-4 people, you can ask as many questions as you want and as many times as you need. And when you go up, we will always be supporting you with weight from below so you don’t run any risk.
Let’s get started! We will climb a total of three routes, always taking turns. You climb up, you climb down, and then the next person climbs up and down. You will be able to rest physically between one route and another and, as we say, at all times we will have a safety system to diminish any possibility of an accident. When we finish the first route, we will go to the next one, and then to the third one. At the end, if you feel like it, we will go for a fourth one.
Keep in mind that this rock climbing area is perfect for beginners. Why? Because it is geologically spectacular, it is very quiet and cool (even in summer) and silence is only interrupted by the chirping of the birds in the area. Can you imagine climbing vertical walls with the sweet melody of the birds around you as a soundtrack?
When we finish climbing, we will sit for a while to discuss the experience (trust us, you will love to review it!) and have a picnic with fresh local products. Very relaxing. At the end, we will start our way back with the incredible sensation of having overcome a risky activity that is certainly physically demanding. In the afternoon we will send you the photos and videos we have taken with our GoPro: your friends will love your Instagram!
What we need from you in this experience

These are also included in the experience, but it wouldn’t look that good if we’d put it on top

You need a special permit to enter this area of the Natural Park. Not just anyone can enter. Well, we DO have it 😉

Is this experience for you?
If you come alone or with one or two buddies, that’d be perfect! It works with relatives, couples, colleagues… whoever you want, but keep in mind that groups can’t be bigger than 4 people.
But this is what sets the tone:
It is for you if...
And it is not if...
And if you like it, what do you have to do?
It’s a very simple process:
¡Al loro! Puedes subirle el nivel a esta experiencia y hacerla mucho más exigente
Sí, existe una opción superior que solo aceptamos bajo petición expresa. Consiste en una experiencia por el mismo tramo pero desde un punto más arriba, con más saltos, más rápeles y más intensidad. Dejaríamos la furgoneta en una parte superior del río, andaríamos 25 minutos y el descenso por el barranco sería de 5h30m aproximadamente. El final es el mismo: ecopicnic y bebidas.
La exigencia física es muuucho más alta, así que solo te recomendamos que nos la pidas si estás muy en forma y ya tienes experiencia haciendo barranquismo.
Esta opción exigente tiene un coste de 75€/persona, solo está disponible bajo petición y lo puedes hacer desde aquí:
Who is behind all of this?

Fun in natural environments is our thing and this climbing initiation is proof of that. We can’t understand the world without nature, so we spend most of our time surrounded by it and take care of it as if it were our own daughter.
Lo que dicen de esta iniciación a la escalada en roca en Nerja
Otros escaladores (que antes de hacer esta actividad tampoco tenían experiencia o si la tenían era poca) opinan esto:
Frequently Asked Questions (yes, there are some)
Yes, it is quite necessary. Even though it is a beginner’s level, it is a demanding experience.
No, you don’t. In fact, we explain everything as if it was your first time at rock climbing.
Comfortable clothes to do the small route and climbing and only if you want, because it is included, food and drink for when we do the ecopicnic. We recommend you especially the drink, because we will give you a half liter bottle that is also made of plastic. In short: if you can bring your own drink, all the better (and if it’s in a sustainable container, peeeeerfect).
Yes, but if you have your own, it is advisable that you bring them with you.
Nope, you will have to arrive at the bus station in Nerja at 10:00h.
We only organize this experience on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, and always upon request.
Yes, about 4 people. We like making “closer groups” and get to know our adventurers, and that is impossible with too many people. There is also the option to make the experience totally private; you just have to ask us.
If you let us know 5 days in advance or more, yes: the full amount. And if it is due to a medical reason, if you give us proof of cancellation, we will refund the money even if you don’t let us know 5 days in advance.
Of course. We can make a voucher with it, so you can surprise whoever you want
That was it! After reading about the experience, you just have to say yes and join us. Even the area alone is worth it; you will love this experience.
