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.

IFMGA/IVBV Certified mountain, ski and canyoning guide, member of DAV and VDBS mountaineering and sport climbing teaching and training team. I’ve been part of the VDBS team for the formation and training of German mountain guides for 20 years.
I started climbing at the age of 17. Since 1987 I am certified mountain guide and a passion has become a profession. I live in Scharnitz / Tyrol and I am leader of the moutaineering school Alpenwelt Karwendel in Mittenwald.
Ice climbing in norway, skitouring in morocco, rock climbing in cuba or high mountains in the himalaya - I like it to explore new areas around the world. I led a DAV training expedition for talented young mountaineers in the Tian Shan mountain range with climbing Khan Tengri and did several expeditions to the karakorum mountains and the himalayas.
As a full-time mountain guide, I feel at home in the Karwendel and Wetterstein mountains as well as in the mountains and climbing areas worldwide. I am happy to accompany you as a guide to your desired goal!

Bernd was very professional and experienced. Also flexible which helped as my luggade was delayed so we postponed our climb one day. Our climbs were everything i hoped for so i highly recommend.
Bernd is professional, patient and extremely knowledgeable when it comes to Ice climbing. We had great introductory session and came away with lots of new skills! We will be booking with Bernd again!
Bernd was an amazing guide. Very knowledgeable and helpful and really made us feel welcome and took us on an amazing adventure. His climbing coaching was top notch, and we learned a lot in the day. Even dropped us off in town afterwards all the way from the ice climbing location, which was over an hour drive. 10/10
Bernd was absolutely an amazing guide. Our plans in Germany got cancelled as our friend got Covid, so I reached out to Bernd on the 21st with just some ideas for the 24th. Not only did he plan the entire trip for us within a day, but he also provided us all the gear at no extra cost, including mountaineering boots, since we had no gear on us. Had a great day climbing; would highly recommend!
I would Highly recommend Bernd as a guide, he has Decades of experienced in mountaineering and alpining climbing and it shows. He adapted our plan quickly as the weather was very poor, so I still could get the experience needed.
Guide was very professional and friendly with an emphasis on safety
This tour was great! Bernd was very knowledgeable about the ice and climbing. He was very helpful and consistently offered advice and guidance to those of us who had never climbed before. I would definitely do more tours with him
Bernd is a great teacher and guide. My husband and I are so glad that we had him as first timers for ice climbing. Aside from being knowledgeable, he is a very kind, warm and genuine person.
Awesome trip! Communication was quick, friendly and efficient. We adapted the trip based on skiing experience, fitness level, and local conditions, which made for a perfect balance between learning touring & safety technique, and physical challenge. Highly recommended!

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!
