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.

About the Guide


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

The Montserrat Mountain Guides offer the possibility to discover this fantastic mountain accompained by professional certified guides and instructors. We organize guided activities and courses of all levels.
Along with all these activities in Montserrat, we 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.

From Guies de Montserrat we 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.

Spiritual values of Nature for private, groups or companies

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.
