Can anyone recommend an indoor climbing in (Las Palmas de) Gran Canaria?
I like to do bouldering at Mandala Climb some time. Seems quite small, but the location is good for me.
I’m climbing in Oceanus Climbing in Telde, worthy to go.
I recommend Climbing World/Indoorwall Gran Canaria in La Isleta.
I checked out Sala Tagorock Climbing today (close to Las Arenas). Small garage, but cool boulders and if you are not a total beginner, it’s a good training place. I am definitely going again.
I was in Climbing World/Indoorwall Gran Canaria in La Isleta. It felt that the routes had, in comparison to my other experience, a high necessity of finger strength. But overall a nice climbing hall and nice people over there.
There are a few options. I usually go to Mandala Climb, and Climbing World/Indoorwall Gran Canaria. Mandala Climb is a climbing shop which also has a bouldering gym. It’s a nice gym, with routes updated often, and it has traversals also. In the morning you can just walk in for a session, but for the afternoons it used to be required to make a reservation prior. Not sure how it is now. Climbing World is a bigger gym, a bit further in La Isleta, and has a mix of bouldering and climbing walls. Also has 3 autobelays.
Can I just turn up at a climbing wall as a beginner?
The climbing gym has 3 types of climbing:
1) bouldering – no ropes or harness, you just climb up 5 meters and jump down. Can do as a beginner.
2) autobelay – you wear a harness and attach yourself to a wire. Climb up without a partner and the machine catches you and lowers you to the ground when you fall or get to the top. Can do as a beginner.
3) lead climbing – need your own rope, climbing partner and some training on how to do it.
