Routes on el Rio, Tenerife

40 sport

We like el Rio, Tenerife

World class sport climbing. One of the best areas I've been to.
Quite large crag (in Tenerife scale) with nice and long single pitch sport routes. Approach is longer and more myriad than suggested in the topo of Tenerife Escalada Deportiva so take care! We started with wrong trail and ended up sneaking through an old dark dam in total darkness (yes actually inside of it, flashlight is handy), quite an experience itself, but not recommended for those afraid of the dark. Climbing itself was nice and crag is sunny. Routes are long and technical, lot of slabs but strong ones can find harder (over 7a) overhanging routes. A good substitute for Arico, if you want longer routes and less crowds!
