Summary

Tenerife excells in providing all year round climbing, from sunny suntraps to secluded and shaded areas.

Description

There is a variety of styles and rock formations, that might require a visitor to spend several days to explore them all. Water polished basalt is fairly common and can be tricky for the inexperienced.

Access issues

Most places in Tenerife enjoy free access, however, some require permission which can often be obtained in-situ through QR code scanning, such as Guaria near Guia de Isora, and also some places in the Teide National Park.

Approach

Unfortunately, most places in Tenerife are not accessible by public transport directly, having to walk long hours to the spots, save for a few crags, such as Vistamar, Poris, Guasiegre, and others. With a car, however, everything is very close by, especially in the Arico area. Most crags will be only a few minutes walk from the car park, the most being around 17 mins.

Where to stay

You are in Tenerife, there are hotels and apartments everywhere! However, if you are looking for climbing specific accommodation, there are two in the Arico area, Tenerife Climbing House with rooms and tents and the local climbing store Roxtar and the more community like hostel Basecamp Ortiz, both are relatively close walking distance to the Arico crags. A climber basecamp hostel for the north crags is 'El Sueño de Mamá' in Tegueste.

Ethic

Please keep the crags noise free and clean. Take your trash and toilet papers with you. Locals tend to bring dogs to the crag. It is good manners to use your own gear at the anchors for lowering or setting up top-ropes. Use the anchor rings/carabiners only for the final lower-off after cleaning.
