Climbing Gran Canaria Via Ferrata La Guagua The weather predictions were rain and more rain. But we were lucky and got a sunny and perfect day on the long Via Ferrata, La Guagua. This Via Ferrata is demanding and very amusing, it has many passages with vertical walls, a amazing cave, a overhanging ladder and a trilling cable bridge. Our clients of the day did a splendid job and the beer afterwards has never tasted so good.
Climbing in Ayacata is always a pleasure, the views are stunning. After a foggy morning in Asserador, practicing anchors, rappel and commands we went to the sector Libreria for some more multipitch practicing. The routes are great, with nice bolted anchors and rappel stations. Ayacata is really a perfect place for learning and teaching multipitch climbing.
