Climbing the Guaria ridge

One of the most spectacular climbing areas in Tenerife is the Guaria ridge, located in the natural reserve of Montaña de Tejina; a protected landscape in the municipality of Guia de Isora nestled in the south-west of the island. These ancient volcanic walls have the longest sports routes on the island - around 90 – although the shape of the rocks also allows a combination of sport and classic climbing with several lengths of rope, which is why it is considered one of the best places for climbing in Tenerife.
