One of the most spectacular climbing areas in Tenerife is in Guía de Isora, and that is the Guaria cliff, in the Montaña de Tejina Natural Monument, one of the protected landscapes of our municipality.
These ancient volcanic walls are home to the longest sport routes on the island -around 90-, although the shape of the rocks also makes it possible to combine it with classic climbing in several rope lengths, which is why many consider it to be the best climbing spot on Tenerife.
As it is in a protected natural landscape, it has specific regulations governing climbing, which can be practised with an annual permit issued by the Cabildo’s Environmental Department.
Regulated climbing sites
In Guía de Isora the only regulated point for climbing is Guaria, so it is important to follow the regulations and carry out this activity in the permitted places. Otherwise it can be very dangerous and you will not be able to take care of yourself quickly.
Besides the fact that it is a protected area and climbing has an impact on the area where it is done, that is why specific sites are stipulated in Guía de Isora and all of Tenerife.
