The island of #Tenerife is an absolute must for fans of traditional climbing.
The huge number of volcanic formations that have eroded over time have left rugged rock faces, creating a unique area for this type of climbing. There is a great collection of rock faces in the Teide National Park, which stands at over 2000 metres above sea level.

Other rock faces that one can climb are Las Ánimas and the Roque de Enmedio, both in the mountains of the Anaga Massif, above the picturesque village of Taganana.
There are many base camps on the island where you can get the best advice and equipment :-
