Highlights

 
     

    Located in the Pyrenees, the Ordesa National Park is the second oldest National Park in Spain. The walls of the Ordesa Valley are a dream destination for multi-pitch rock climbing. Join me for a day or more and let’s explore the ground!

    There is an intense ambiance of high mountain. The walls are steep and offer many options for us to enjoy rock climbing in the most beautiful setting.

    The Ordesa Valley is considered one of the best trad climbing areas in Spain. Rock climbing here can be demanding, and always extremely rewarding! A true adventure field to explore through its multi-pitch routes.

    Here are some of my favourite options:
    – Ravier at Tozal del Mallo (400m, 6a+)
    – Brujas Franco-Española at Tozal del Mallo (400m, 6b)
    – Rabadá-Navarro at Gallinero (400m, 6b+)
    – Pilar de Primavera at El Tridente (230m, 6a)

    You do need to have prior rock climbing experience to join this program. The terrain can be technical and steep, ask me if you have any doubts. Please note that the price can change depending on the program that you choose.

    Are you interested in this rock climbing program in this beautiful National Park of the Pyrenees? Then don’t hesitate to send me a request, I would love to guide you along these marvellous walls. And you can also have a look at multi-pitch rock climbing in Montserrat, for more options in Spain.

    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.

    What People are Saying about Marc Vilaplana

     

    Do you think rock climbing in winter does not work well? Forget it! Marc shows you that Catalunya in January is an amazing experience. Above all, we appreciate his flexibility that allowed us to focus only and only on things that we wanted and he took care of everything else (finding the only place without rain, lending me his jacket and saving my fallen cell phone). In short, superb experience with a superb instructor!

    Marc was fantastic. One of the most knowledgable and efficient guide i\'ve had. Me and my partner have been climbing in the gym for a number of years now, but i\'m unfortunately still afraid of height. Marc made us feel very safe throughout the whole trip and was very encouraging when i got stuck. He made sure that we had fun and at the same time improving our climbing skills. I would definitely recommend Marc to anyone considering a climbing trip.
