Salto del Perro - Gran Canaria
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.
From the South of the island like Playa del Inglés or Maspalomas, take the road GC-60/GC-520 towards Fataga. After San Bartolomé de Tirajana, continue on the road GC-60/GC-815 towards Tejeda. A few kilometers after El Sequero, on a tight turn you will find a riverbed. Access Facing the wall, take the path towards your right (parallel to the road from which you arrived). Walk some minutes until finding a path on the left that ascends towards the right hand corner of the wall. Reach the right hand corner and walk along the base of the wall towards the left until you find the outcrop that gives way to the first routes.
