More Info

Montserrat is multi-peaked mountain range about 50 kilometers northwest of Barcelona. The range is composed of multiple pinkish conglomerate rock formations, which resemble the teeth of a saw and can be seen from fairly far away. In fact, Montserrat means “saw mountain” in Catalan.

Among the most popular climbing options in the range are Sant Jeroni (1,236 meters) and Miranda de les Agulles (903 meters). However, there are dozens of routes to climb, including big walls, rocky towers and needles. Due to the immense diversity of Montserrat as well, no two climbs are alike.

Trip offerings to the range generally range from a half-day to an entire week. Due to its convenient location near Barcelona, it is also easy to combine climbing in Montserrat with climbing adventures to other parts of the Catalan Pre-Coastal Range too.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed climbing with Marc. He was incredibly knowledgeable of the area in Montserrat and assessed our skill set very quickly. He was very safe and thorough in all his systems and we felt very comfortable with his experience. We hope to be back in the area soon to hopefully spend 2-3 days climbing in the area with Marc!

Had a wonderful week with Miriam in the beautiful Catalonia! Miriam was a fantastic guide and was very good at keeping everything safe, fun and sufficiently challenging. I only had minor experience with rock climbing prior to this trip and by the end of it I felt comfortable being lead on multi-pitch routes. I was very impressed by the beauty and diversity of Catalonia. In just a few hours of driving could the whole landscape can change completely. A perfect place for trying different rock types and to just enjoy the spectacular views!
