The Annual Climbing Meeting of the Federation of Mountain Sports of the Valencian Community, in collaboration with the Mountain Club and the Town Hall of Redován, will bring together more than 300 people in the municipality this weekend. This was announced today by the Councillor for Sports, Ramón López, accompanied by the president of the Mountain Club, José Vegara, who expressed their satisfaction with the great reception of this event, as well as the tourist impact it will have on Redován “as our town, already well known for being one of the best places in Spain to practice mountain sports, will become the epicentre of these disciplines and will become even better known,” said Ramón López.
The Sports Councillor specified that in order to accommodate all these people, a hostel with a capacity for 50 people has been set up in the Los Pasos Sports Centre, as well as a camping area and another for caravans “so that those who visit us can enjoy the experience according to their tastes, needs and concerns”.
The Annual Climbing Meeting begins tomorrow with the reception of attendees. On Saturday, after breakfast, all those registered will be able to enjoy their breakfast. From half past eight in the morning the climbing, hiking and via ferrata activities will begin, and there will also be an exhibition of base jumping. The highlight of the day, which will take place in the Los Pasos Sports Centre, will be at seven o’clock in the evening, with the conference ‘Aula Pou. Una vida encordados’, in which the brothers Iker and Eneko Pou, world-renowned professional climbers and mountaineers, will talk about their experience in the most beautiful and difficult mountains in the world.
