The highest rope jump in Gran Canaria
The impressive El Berriel rope jump is Gran Canaria’s highest. Located in the El Berriel valley in the south of the island it is accessed via a well know vía ferrata climb. This 130 metre jump with 100 metres of free fall is opposite a steep-sided valley wall dropping to the winding valley floor: An ideal spot to take in the silence and then drop into the abyss.
Rope jumping and vía ferrata climbing
El Berriel is one of the most demanding rope jumps in Gran Canaria as its exit point requires an hour of climbing up the Primera Luna vía ferrate right next to the famous but more demanding Extraplomix vía ferrata. El Berriel should only be jumped with the support of a local group that know the terrain and the particulars of the jump. For example, the angle of jump needed to safely exit the narrow start point.
