Highlights

 
     

    Join me for a fantastic rock climbing day in Montserrat, near Barcelona. Montserrat is a rocky massif, the most iconic mountain in Catalonia. Located only 30km from the city of Barcelona, this massif holds an extreme beauty and it is great for rock climbing.

    Climbing in Montserrat is always an incredibly experience, the compact conglomerate rock and the beauty of the always surrounding needles makes it so special.

    Due to the more than 4.000 routes that we can find in Montserrat its possible to climb all year round. It’s perfect for winter colder days with sunny sheltered south faces and good in summer when we climb on the north face.

    This program is open to all level climbers. It’s perfect for a first multi-pitch experience and for the most challenging climbers. Just tell me your level and objectives and I’ll look for the routes that suits you best.

    Are you tempted to try rock climbing in Montserrat? Come and enjoy this magical place in Catalonia, exploring its rocky walls! And for more rock climbing options in Catalonia, check out this program in the Pyrenees.

    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.
