Who is this performance climbing coaching course for?

This course is for anybody that is climbing at a french grade of F6a+ to F6c+ (toprope or lead). After the first day where your climbing coach will film you climbing - which will then be analysed to see where your points of improvement lie, you will start working on breaking down any inefficient climbing patterns you might have developed and replace these with more efficient climbing techniques.

All aspects of climbing will be covered over the weeks course, getting your grade up and equipping you with the extra skills and knowledge that pro climbers have. Our top coaches will work in small ratios on both on-sight and red-point climbing getting you up through the grades. It might be you want to become a confident 6b lead climber, or maybe you have always wanted to on-sight F6c or get that first F7a in the bag. Either way our coaches will give you the skills and knowledge for you to take away and keep improving your climbing.

Accommodation and Transfers

You will be staying in a beautiful, fully equipped and spacious villa with swimming pool just a five minute walk from the typical Spanish village Parcent, in the Xalon Valley. The Xalon Valley is just inland from Benissa and has some amazing crags, such as Pena Roja, Alcalali and l'Ocaive. The villa is about 30 minutes from the town and coast of Calpe. The Xalon valley is famous for its high quality wines - you will be surrounded by vineyards, as well as olive trees, orange groves and almond groves. Parcent has a range of bars and restaurants (among which the best Paella restaurant in the area!), a minimarket, bakery and pharmacy, all within walking distance of the villa.

The villa has a total of four bedrooms and three bathrooms, a beautiful garden with different seating areas and an outside BBQ. Its fully fitted kitchen, lounge and dining area have the character of an original Spanish farmhouse. There is WiFi in the villa. For photos, click on the Accommodation tab above.


We offer one free transfer from Alicante Airport to your accommodation (which will be the start date of your holiday – normally a Saturday) which departs from Alicante Airport at 2.00pm latest. To take advantage of this service, and in order to minimize waiting times, please aim for midday arrivals.

On departure day (the end date of your holiday - normally a Saturday) we offer one free transfer to Alicante Airport which departs the villa around 9.00am. We therefore suggest to aim for midday departures.

If you wish to travel to the accommodation independently, or if you can't buy a flight within these hours, transfers may be arranged, subject to availability, on alternative days/times. Contact us for more information.
