Trad climibng on Gran Canaria

Hello,
we'll be on Gran Canaria this winter and would like to do some climbing. We've got a guide book but it only covers the sports climbing.
I heard there's good trad climbing around Ayacata but I can't find no information.
Does anybody have some route descriptions about the climbing there?

Advice? Climbing around Chamonix in June 2018

Hi SummitPosters,

I enjoy doing all the research and planning for alpine trips, but I figure it can't hurt (well, 'sticks and stones' kind of can't hurt) to ask for some feedback / advice / alternative suggestions from those with personal experience.

I'm looking to spend June in the Alps. I'm pretty comfortable climbing up to AD+, I've been climbing in NZ's Southern Alps Summer and Winter the last few years, and have been trad ...

Norway 2018

Is anyone interested in joining us for a Norway trip next summer?

We'll be there June 28-July 10, which includes a full day stopover in Iceland.

The plan ...

Can someone ID this peak? On the Mont Blanc massif taken from Chamonix.
I have a few thoughts but am not completely matching it up to anything I'm easily finding online.

Possible to buy Via Ferrata gear in the Dolomites?

Is it easy enough to buy Via Ferrata gear in the Dolomites area?

I'll be headed there mid October and would like to hit some Via Ferrata routes, but I don't want to buy stuff now in case the routes are closed due to snow, I'd rather wait and buy locally once I arrive unless I won't be able to find a spot to buy them.

Any input on good routes or experiences in the ...
