Discover the fantastic rock quality of the Sierra des Prades and Sierra de Montsant in Catalonia, and enjoy the sunny autumn in Spain. Bernd, and IFMGA-certiified guide, takes you on this 8-day rock climbing trip.
The climbing venues of the Sierra de Prades and the Sierra de Montsant in Catalonia offer fantastic rock quality. Join me on this 8-day trip and enjoy the sunny conditions of autumn for a unique rock climbing tour.
Even the water temperatures of the Mediterranean Sea on the nearby Costa Daurada –Golden Coast, in English- invite you to swim during fall. Our apartment overlooking the rocks is centrally located in Cornudella de Montsant and it is an ideal starting point for our tour.
The Prades Mountains are large calcareous mountain massif, with characteristic rounded and large rocky outcrops. These mainly limestone and conglomerate mountains rise steeply from the coast. The Sierra de Montsant comprises excellent climbing on high-quality conglomerate.
We will have a lot of fun climbing on these amazing venues in Catalonia. I will give you the tips and tricks you need to improve your personal climbing performance. We will go over securing techniques, descent and tactics training.
This climbing programme is also suitable for beginners, although you need at least a basic climbing knowledge to join this tour.
From Barcelona, we will drive a rental car to our accommodation in Cornudella, where we will discuss our plan for the following days. We can choose between the ranges of the Sierra de Montsant and Margalef or the structured lime of Siurana -the Queen of sport climbing in the Sierra de Prades-, Falco, Arboli and Mussara.
During these 8 days, we will also have time to enjoy some sightseeing in Siurana and a trip to the nearby Costa Daurada, a beautiful coastal area by the Mediterranean Sea.

Fantastic trip! Bernd was a wonderful guide that made sure we had a memorable trip in the Italian Alps. The itinerary was perfectly structured. Would definitely recommend to have Bernd as a guide for any aspiring mountaineer!
Bernd went above and beyond on this trip, working with us and finding the best places to teach us multi-pitch climbing. He watched the weather to find the best locations for the given weather. He is an excellent mountaineer and taught us so much.
Bernd was very organised and an incredible guide. Bad weather meant the climb we wanted to do wasn\'t possible. He was flexible enough to take us to another location in the alps that was just as impressive and challenging but far better conditions .
The guide Bernd was terrific - very knowledgable, experienced and patient with our group of beginners. Even when the weather turned to the worse, he kept finding ways to make it enjoyable, safe and interesting for all of us. We had a great time. Communication with him prior to the trip was also very clear and easy. Highly recommended!
We booked Bernd to organise a day of top rope and lead climbing for our family who climb regularly indoors but are novices outdoors. Bernd asked the right questions and selected a perfect area for us to climb with a large number of routes of differing grades. Bernd gave us the right amount of instruction and guidance - we are already planning our next trip to Austria and will be repeat customers.
