Navarre has well-equipped rock walls located mainly in the central zone, where the milder climate enables this type of sporting activity to be pursued practically all year round. In this area there are many geological fault lines, since it forms the transition between the high peaks of the north and the riverside plains to the south.
Rock-climbing can take place on different types of stone and the level of difficulty of the routes, which will typically vary between levels 4 and 8 , depend on the rock's characteristics. The most common form in this zone is climbing on limestone , although there are exceptions, such as the 'Kopa' school in Lesaka, which is on granite. The majority of the routes enjoy good access and are relatively close to roads.
The best-known schools are Carrascal, Etxauri and San Fausto (Estella-Lizarra); less well known but equally attractive are those at Uharte-Arakil, Dos Hermanas (Irurtzun), Kopa (Lesaka) and Codés.
