Block climbing in Fuerteventura’s rocky peaks

Despite being a flat island, Fuerteventura's treasured rock formations with their low walls have become something of a cult place for climbers. These curious peaks are nestled in the ravine of Las Peñitas, located on the west coast, one of the most interesting and beautiful natural areas on the island of Fuerteventura. Here the rocks are huge blocks of syenite very similar to granite - perfect for fans of block climbing or bouldering

40-metre routes close to Ajuy

In fact, there have been several successive Fuertebloque climbing events; an annual gathering that takes place every December when temperatures are cooler.
