About Rocodromo de S.Pedro:

This is going to be the biggest outdoor gym in Europe. They are building a monolith with a climbing surface of 1.500 m3. It's worth a visit. It's supposed to be finished on April 2004, meanwhile the one already built is big enough for all the locals. These are the words of the company which is building it: "The adventure and leisure park Natura Aventura situated close to the sunny city of Marbella on the Spanish Coast – more specifically in the San Pedro de Alcántara zone will house the largest artificial climbing wall ever built. And it will open soon. Presently a crew of Top 30 workers is finishing the construction of the biggest climbing wall ever. The giant is scheduled to be completed in April. The construction is progressing rapidly and the work is ahead of schedule. The expectations have rightfully been high, but are being surpassed by the real thing. The measures of the construction are not a joke. The wall can boast a final height of 17 m which will allow routes of up to 25 m of length and with a number of holds that reaches the chilling number of 3500 units it is a serious bulk of artificial rock. The climbable surface is a mesmerizing 875 m2. Combined with the face which incorporates a canyon the total surface exceeds a stunning 2000 m2. The wall designed and earmarked for climbing is divided in three sections. Two of them, with an overhang each of 9 m and 7, 5 m respectively, will be superb for competitions. The third section will be suitable for beginners and for running climbing courses. All this is made in 3D Real Rock. Not surprisingly the ICC has just made official that next summer this climbing wall will host an event of the World Cup 2004. Besides a round in the Spanish Cup will also be held on this wall. The narrow and steep canyon which is the largest and longest in Europe of its kind presents the brave and bold with a tour of more than 50 m - with waterfalls and deep pools for a real canyoneering experience. Inside it will be possible to practise speleological explorations. At the top you may enter down a chasm and emerge at the foot of the gorge finishing right under the waterfall. This section is constructed with a special type of concrete made for this installation alone by technicians form Top 30 - specialists in working with this material. In the thematic park of Natura Aventura its visitors will, besides being invited to try the climbing wall, be able to practise a number of various activities such as archery, canoeing, tours of the Sierra de las Nieves natural reserve, paintball, crossing of suspension bridges etc, etc. Each and every building that composes this park will possess final touch from Top 30 since the rustic appearance that characterizes them is also a work of our company. Undoubtedly the park will present itself as an outstanding possibility for leisure and adventure for all – and very soon. For more information, please visit the web page"
