/ Climbing in Tenerife . . .
Go to this shop, buy the guidebook and ask for advice - friendly and helpful english speaking staff ..
My impression from a quick visit is that there is lots of good climbing from mid grade 6 upwards, but not much below this.
Having said that, Caņada del Capricho is a must-see area - great views, amazing rock. I just did a bit of easy top-roping on the slabs, but it was still a memorable experience. Remember to book a permit if you want to walk to the summit of Tiede while you are in the area.
A few bits of info for you.
+1 for the guys at Roxtar, they were super helpful when we were out there
Top crag recommendation would be Guaria,
No Martin, it's volcanic.

Ah,thank goodness you`ve cleared that up,I was confused!
Roxtar is great but be sure to check their hours before you go as they aren't open all the time. The guidebook they have available there lists lots of climbs but only 6's and above- there are some lists on Ukclimbing.com that are below 6's if that's what you're looking for.
