About us

In these pages you will find some climbing sites in Portugal, if you plan to come here on holidays .
To go directly to the climbing schools click in left frame "Climbing Areas" 

Here we make some considerations on climbing with children and beginners .
On Beginners page we try to explain some of our experience to parents who are afraid of children climbing experiences. What we comment is the advantage of this sport for the children psychics, and confident. Remember : in some countries, climbing is the standard gymnastic practice at school.
We explain also in the beginner page some basics of the climbing sport.

The information contained herein is also valid for people looking for new places to climb during the holidays and just need to have a good reason to travel. CLIMBING CAN BE ONE !!!

Scouts in Sintra

2 -
If you click directly in the map of Portugal, you will be sent immediately to the route identification, without information on the accesses .

Do not hesitate to mail me asking for information.
The information about some sites is not completed yet. We are working on it. Please be patient! 

These pages are not an official  service, but only a compilation of some main Portuguese rock climbing sites and also a study about questions concerning  young people and this sport.  

Be sure of one thing : we are not climbing champions but will try to be champions in the study of this matter.
