Description

During this 2-day guided climbing trip, you will have the opportunity to explore Catalonia’s incredible landscape while honing your climbing technique.  This is a special opportunity to practice both trad and sport climbing on two of the region’s most iconic spots.

This program takes us to two of Catalonia’s best climbing spots: Pedraforca and Montserrat.  Pedraforca is a uniquely shaped peak that towers above the surrounding landscape, as it is not connected to any other mountains.  Montserrat is a cluster of jagged mountains that brings to mind the blade of a saw. Both are famous climbing destinations close to Barcelona, and both feature numerous walls with routes that appeal to climbers of all levels.

We will meet the morning of Day 1 and head to Montserrat, where we will have the chance to sport climb the multipitch needles.  Then, we will head by car to Refugi Lluís Estasen, where we will spend the night. After a refreshing night’s sleep, we wake up and spend the day climbing Pedraforca, where we have the opportunity to work on our trad climbing technique.  After a second day of climbing, we will head back to Barcelona.

While you need to have a moderate fitness level in order to enjoy climbing for two consecutive days, this program can be adapted for all levels of climbers, from beginner to advanced.  I will guide you up the routes that best suit your ability.

Come join me for this two day tour and enjoy the beautiful landscape of Catalonia while enjoying world-class climbing.  Reserve now and I guarantee that you will improve your climbing skills while having a blast!

I’m Xavi Fàbregas, a certified climbing and mountain guide and a Biology graduated.

I started climbing as a child, where with a group of friends we started on multipitch climbing in the hand of the then guardian of Sant Benet. I have made several climbs in the Alps, Atlas, Southeast Asia, Patagonia, Jordan... and I love it! The Pyrenees its the place where I've toured more.

Xavi was wonderful. My daughter and I had a great climb. Early in our hike, while I was enjoying Xavi, I wondered if we really needed him. Then it became clear that it is easy to lose your way on Pedraforca and many do. It was much more enjoyable to have him with us and not have to worry about directions! We had some great conversations and learned a lot about Catalonia as well. Pedraforca itself is legendary, not because it is difficult but because it is so beautiful and unique.
