The hostel is quite literally surrounded by rock.

Right now there are almost 250 bolted sport routes, five multi pitch sport routes and 80 bouldering problems. The routes are spread across 10 areas, all of which are within easy walking distance of the hostel. The closest area is only 15 minutes walk and the furthest is forty minutes walk.

The climbing covers all different styles and grades range from 5.7 to 5.14a, and there is still a huge amount of potential for further development.

With year round average temperatures of 15 degrees the climate is perfectly suited to climbing.
The dry season is from from October to May when it's dry and sunny nearly every day.

In autumn the temperature ranges from around 10 in the night to low 20s in the day.

In winter it can drop to around freezing in the night but in the day it is around 15 to 20. It feels hotter in the sun though and climbing in a T-shirt is possible on the south facing walls.

By March the nights are warmer and it is regularly low 20s in the day. It continues to get warmer through the spring with the hottest time in April and May. Even then it rarely gets above high 20s and there are usually some cloudy days when you can climb on the south facing crags.

From mid June to Septepmer it's the rainy season. During this time it seems to either rain lightly all day, or be dry in the morning with heavy showers in the afternoon. It rains at some point most days but it doesn't often rain continuously for several days in a row. Despite the rain, there aren't many days when climbing is not possible. Some areas are climbable even in heavy rain, more areas are climbable in light rain, and all of the rock dries very quickly.
