Description

Set in the gorgeous Catalan Coastal Mountain range, Montserrat is about 40km inland from Barcelona. I am offering this one-day rock climbing introduction course where I will teach you the basics of climbing. You will learn both how to follow and how to lead a climb yourself.

This course is for beginners but nonetheless you should be relatively fit to take part in this activity. On the day I will begin by covering some important climbing theory regarding the equipment, the most effective physical techniques and some safety tips.

Next, I will lead some climbs and you will practice following my routes and refining your technique. Once you feel comfortable following my climb you will learn to lead climbs yourself and attach ropes to the rock face. By the end of the day you will be full of confidence and after lead climbing, any climbing with a top rope in place will be a breeze!

I have a limit of 6 participants on one trip to ensure I can monitor all the climbers and guarantee safety.

If you’re looking for a breathtaking setting and enthusiastic teacher to begin your climbing experience, then Montserrat and I are the perfect match for you. I look forward to introducing you to the amazing world of rock climbing.

I also offer a half-day rock climbing program in the area. Alternatively, if you’d like to enjoy another thrilling activity in Montserrat, check out my Via Ferrata program. It is a great option for people with no climbing experience.

Itinerary

Day 1: Rock Climbing

The day will begin with some important theory that will cover all the safety concerns, introduce you to all the equipment we will use and familiarise you with the necessary techniques.

After the theory you will learn how to follow my lead climb and refine your technique in the secure practice.

Once you are comfortable with this you will lead your own climb and elevate your confidence to the next level!

I will also teach you the belay system which is integral to successful and safe rock climbing

About the guide

Right in the heart of Catalonia, well connected with Barcelona, stands the Montserrat massif; a mountain with big natural, cultural and spiritual significance that rises sharply to 1,236 meters from the top of St. Jeroni.

I organize guided activities and courses of all levels, and offer the possibility to discover this fantastic mountain accompanied by a professional certified guide.

Along with all these activities in Montserrat, I can guide you over all the natural sites of Catalonia and the Pyrenees, a region with a wide range of possibilities for trekkers, hikers, climbers, etc.

I promote the use of sustainable transportation (train, zipper, funicular) and the development of activities that stimulate in participants a feeling of belonging to the places he or she visits. This perception of belonging, as we work with feelings and perceptions, can perfectly be assimilated to a sense of spirituality.

Our main activities are:
Spiritual values of Nature for private, groups or companies
Rock climbing
Hiking
Via Ferrata

I wanted to send you an email regarding the amazing experience we had in the Pyrenees with our guide Ricard. He was an amazing guide and was able to answer any questions we had and also made the hike an incredible experience for me as a geoscientist. He also stopped for breakfast along the way and provided us with a very nice picnic to enjoy during our hike which was very appreciated. I would highly recommend this experience and Ricard was an excellent guide who takes pride in providing people the most optimal experience and being a very friendly person in general.

It rained the day of my guided climb which made the trip less than I had hoped for. However, Xavi made it the best day he could and after we bailed we did some sport climbing where it was protected from rain.

Francesc was awesome. He brought us on our first multi pitch. He made arriving at the belay stations and eventually repelling super simple and safe feeling. The climbs he took us on we’re awesome and would have taken us hours to find if we just arrived at a new crag with a guide book (especially if the book was in Spanish) Definitely the highlight of our honeymoon.

Everything about this trip was amazing. The only thing I felt could be better was about what to expect and / or bring for the day. We had a good idea of what was needed being climbers already but beginners may not.

Ricard was amazing. It was everything I hoped for in my first hike. He picked a route that was perfect for my fitness level. I felt challenged but accomplished by the end of the 6.5 hour hike. I felt like Ricard and I were friends by the end of it. He was knowledgeable about the history of Montserrat and made sure to educate me about the trees, plants and the different mountain peaks during our adventure. I felt safe around Ricard and knew I was in great hands.  He’s a wonderful human and truly made this experience rememberable.

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. Thanks!

My husband and I visited Spain in August and made sure to add a via ferratta to our 'to do' list. Franscec was a wonderful guide. We loved his geology knowledge (we're both geoloigsts), as well as his knowledge about the flora and fauna. The trip was fun, but we would have loved to have gone on a longer trip. Next time! We highly recommend this trip to anyone who is looking for a fun outside adventure.

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!

Francesc did a great job of finding a route within my abilities, and then a fantastic job guiding me up it! Hearing the bells of the monastery at Montserrat echo up the mountain while climbing was truly spectacular!

Both Explore-Share and Francesc gave us exactly the info we needed in a very short time, due to our program in Barcelona and around. There were no delays of any kind in our collaboration with both of them.

The via ferrata at las damas was amazing! The route is easy for people who have rock climbing experience, but also doable for everyone else!
