A great morning out with Carlos at Cala Moli! Beautiful setting. Carlos was very patient and conscious of everyone’s safety. He was clear on his instructions and made it a great experience for us!

Absolutely fantastic day out in Montserrat mountains. Marc is super friendly and easy going and helped me to achieve my goals while lead climbing. The area is also gorgeous with over 4000 routes to suit any skill level. Can not recommend enough!!

Beautiful climb on spectacular conglomerate rock. To top it off, Marc is very knowledgeable and friendly!

Trip was awesome. Met up on time, did lots of pitches, Carlos was very knowledgeable, safe, and we had a lot of fun. I would highly recommend him. -Rob A.

Thank you for an awesome trip!

Carlos was an excellent guide. He communicated well and we learned a lot about Spanish history and culture from him. He took us to an awesome location so that I could propose to my partner!

Carlos is awesome! He was extremely responsive after booking and tailored a trip to fit our level and interests. He helped us manage logistics (places to stay, where to meet), and was prompt each day picking us up. Carlos knows the area and guided us to gorgeous routes at our level. This area has legendary sport climbing, which we only had limited gym experience with. Carlos led at first, but taught us to lead by the end! He also took & shared great photos of the trip! Highly recommended!

Both Marissa and I had a great time climbing with Francesc. He was knowledgeable, charming and fun to climb with! Plus he taught us how to make pan con tomate :).

One thing however, Cesc took some images with his camera (I cannot remember what he called it but it’s similar to a GoPro) and we were curious if we could get digital copies.

Can you ask him about that?

I would recommend this trip to anyone and everyone who is interested in climbing in Spain or anywhere in the world.


I have to admit, before getting a guide I was very weary. I had never used a guide for climbing but decided to go with Cesc. It was the best decision I made. He was an absolute pleasure to work with. He knew exactly where to take us for learning sport outside and continued to push us throughout the day with climbs that were at our level. Will definitely use him again when we come back to BCN for some multi-pitch!

I had a marvelous first time climbing experience with my guide Jordi. Thank you!

It was great time.. Enjoyed multi rock climbing with good guide Mark.. Next time I will go again with Mark.

I had the best experience of my entire holiday with Marc. I never climbed before and with him coaching in safety and technique I managed to advance ALOT in my 2 day course. He does that little extra to make the experience truly unique. I would recommend this to anyone who who is up for a great challenge and adventure, in spectacular environments, with a fantastic guide/coach/teacher. Thank you Marc.

Miriam was the best guide I could have asked for. I did the 1 week Rock Climbing in Catalonia and had a fantastic time! Miriam is friendly, fun and supportive. She catered the trip to my abilities and I am so glad I went off the beaten track and decided to do this trip as I saw a beautiful side of Spain that I had never seen before. Thanks Miriam!

Constance Lafleur for Week of rock climbing in Catalonia

Marc was great, he even went back to grab me climbing shoes when I left mine at home. He taught me some of the history of the beautiful area, and put us up on some of the most spectacular lines I’ve been on. Will recommend to all of my climbing friends, as well as book with him again when I eventually return to this magical place! Marc spoke English well and was very receptive, helpful and accommodating.
