Climbing at Salto del Perro, Gran Canaria

di

The sport climbing crag Salto del Perro on Gran Canaria, Spain. Presented by Vertical-Life.info as part of our series 'Crags for each season', for which the routes and topos can be downloaded free of charge for a fortnight.

Gran Canaria is a year-round climbing area; however, climbers, who want to escape the cold winter in their countries will find perfect conditions on the Spanish island during the colder months.

Generally speaking the climbing experience on Gran Canaria is somewhat unusual, especially for those who are used to climbing limestone. The basalt offers cracks and compression moves, often on poor smears.

The area ‘Salto del Perro’ is situated in the south of the island. The crag offers spectacular views for climbers. Routes tend to be difficult, up to a9a even. For these hard project, it is advisable to go to the crag early in the morning or on cloudy or colder days to have the best friction.

Access to the crag takes about 15-20 minutes. The rock in the area is loose in sections, that is why a helmet is recommended. You can also climb in light rain. Salto del Perro hosts one of the hardest route on Gran Canaria: Maneras de Vivir, 9a. The first ascent was carried out in 2016 by the Canarian climber Samuel Calvente.
