Description

Come with me and climb the exciting vertical route Cala del Molí in the rugged and beautiful Costa Brava. A half-day tour full of adrenaline and excitement to share with the whole family!

There are different types of iron rungs, chains and cable bridges for you to climb, there are also sections where you will be climbing on the rock. The climbing is not very sustained, there are some demanding sections combined with easier ones. There is also the possibility to clip yourself into the rungs and rest or just keep climbing adding more challenges to the experience.

This is a loop activity with a couple of exits in the middle and before the most challenging section for those who already have enough. If you have never done this activity before, this is your opportunity since you do not need previous experience.

During this half-day adventure, you will not only fall in love with Catalonia and its magical rock walls. You will also find in via ferrata a new hobby and why not, the beginning of a new skill to develop. Thus, in the future, you can try more challenging via ferratas in other parts of Europe, such as the Alps.

This excursion is available all year round and can be done from Monday to Friday or on weekends. Just contact me and let me know your preferences.

I’ll be waiting for you, send your request to book now!

About the guide

AEGM Rock Climbing Guide

Ever since I was a kid I have been in contact with nature, and this has been my environment. Family traditions led to my first steps in the hiking world. I discovered wonderful places and learned to enjoy and respect the mountains. Still vivid in my memories are the ascents around Ordesa NP and the Catalan Pyrenees during my childhood.

At the age of eighteen I took my first steps in rock climbing. I dedicated some years climbing traditional classic routes, with the Montsec range as my school. With the experience gained I widened my horizons and started discovering new walls: Ordesa, Puig Campana, Penyal d'Ifach, Los Mallos de Riglos, Montrebei, Terradets...

In 2000, I got my Civil Engineer degree. I then spent my holidays climbing. At this point I started exploring the big possibilities France and its walls opened up: Verdon, Vercors, Jonte...

In 2002 I went on a one-year trip to Australia, but without climbing. After that year I realized rock climbing was my real passion. At then started spending as much time as I had climbing. My climbing trips starting taking me further and further. It was in Switzerland where I discovered my favorite climbing terrain: the amazing limestone walls of Wendenstöcke, Rätikon, Sanetsch... After that, new destinations kept coming: UEA, Jordan, Morocco, Dolomites, Sardinia, Corsica...

Finally, I decided to become a Climbing Guide and offer all my climbing experience to you.

My formal training started in 2011, as I became a Climbing Monitor of the High Mountain Catalan Academy (ECAM). Just after that, in 2012, I got my Climbing Sport Technician degree.

Not satisfied with that, I continued my training to get the highest climbing degree available in Spain. In the spring of 2014 I finished my training and became a Climbing Superior Sport Technician.

My girlfriend and I had Marc as a Via Ferrata instructor. Even though we were new and a little slow, not once did he rush or hurry us. All he focused on was safety and encouragement. This review will not do Marc justice. Truly an outstanding instructor

I had one of the coolest experiences of my life on the Via Ferrata with Marc! He made sure that we felt safe and let us choose the level of difficulty that we wanted. He also took pictures of us climbing which I thought was really nice! Highly recommend
