Access issues inherited from Roques de Garajonay

De momento sólo está permitida la escalada en el Roque Agando, el más emblemático. Se requiere un permiso.

At the moment only climbing is only allowed on Roque Agando, the most emblematic rock formation. A permit is required. But it is outside of the national park border.

Rüdiger Steuer, who made a lot of first ascents, write on his website: "Standing close to the national park border, there is no ascent ban, but there are rumors about it. In this regard, climbers have already been approached by rangers. However, there is neither an official publication by the authorities nor any other accessible reason for a ban. So no climber cares. However, a queasy feeling of possibly doing something forbidden remains. This applies to possible first ascents that can be seen from the street. Possibly addressed by rangers, one should always not understand the language, play the innocent, but without arguing. "

Ethic inherited from La Gomera

La escalada tradicional y la deportiva parecen coexistir amistosamente, aunque [los tradicionalistas se burlan del atornillado alemán en Roque Cano] ( Como en todas partes: mantenga el área limpia y proteja el medio ambiente.

Trad and sport climbing seems to friendly coexist, though traditionalists are mocking about german bolting at Roque Cano. As everywhere: Please keep the area clean and protect the environment.
