My girlfriend and I are heading to Europe in Feb in our converted Sprinter. Our aim is to elongate the trip as much as possible by picking up work where we can in exchange for food/money etc.

Can anyone recommend any good climbers hostels that regularly take people on in this way? We know of the Olive Branch in Chorro but surely this isn't the only one??

More optimistically if anyone is running anything like this and would like any work done please message me!

We're pretty easy on the 'where', so long as it has good (warmish) climbing in Feb. Then thinking ahead we'd be looking at heading to Italy for places like Val di mello and other granite paradises...

I look forward to your collective knowledge...!

Orange House are similar from what I'm aware... Not 100% though! http://theorangehouse.co.uk

I think I have seen an email re this and yes we do take "oranges" I stopped this a few years back due to too many at the same time and creating a click which I hated!

The new manager is in charge of who comes when, I will make sure he has replied.

P.S We started this scheme waaaaaay before The Olive Branch

Oh I'm sure - just wasn't sure if you still kept up the practice as the info wasn't on the website

No I need to create a new page, and as I said I had a wobble a few years back and threw em all out! I was a big bad meenie!!!!

Since then we have had nothing but great people and we are also listed on Workaway which is usually none climbers, they work much harder lol

No worries, probably hard to find people with a work-life balance when employing dirtbag-climbers ;)
