If you want to introduce yourself to the world of rock climbing, this is an unmissable opportunity. Come to Montserrat to learn the basics under our expert guidance!

Located 35km northwest of Barcelona, in Catalonia, Montserrat is a multi-peak massif that belongs to the Catalan Pre-Coastal Range. Mainly made of limestone, some of these blunted spires rise up to 1,200m and host climbing routes for all levels.

On this day course, we will visit the southern face of Montserrat (Vertiente Sur), famous for the excellent quality of its rock and for having many routes equipped with parabolts. Our goal is that you learn the following basic skills: Figure eight, Belaying devices, Top Rope belaying, Rappelling and Climbing gestures. In addition, this program is an opportunity to meet new people and share a passion for nature and vertical walls!

Please keep in mind that my course does not require previous experience. However, it is recommended to have a good fitness level or to have climbed on an indoor wall at some time. If you practice sports regularly, you are prepared.

So, if you want to learn to climb safely and autonomously in a scenic region of Catalonia, please contact us. Let’s go to Montserrat (Vertiente Sur) to step into the thrilling world of rock climbing!

And if you want to head up some multi-pitch routes in this same area, then check out our Roca Gris program.

This was my first trip to Spain, and climbing was not the primary purpose. My daughter and I are both experienced climbers, but not knowing the area I decided to look for a guide so that the one day we devoted to climbing on our short trip to the Barcelona area would be efficiently used. I had no idea how to find a legitimate on-line service through which to arrange this but in my research came across this company. Via the site I found a great local guide who gave us a wonderful day of adventurous fun, not just with the climbing but also by providing the history of the area.
