Montserrat multi-pitch rock climbing

Join Xavi, a certified mountain guide, to practice multi-pitch rock climbing in the fantastic walls of the Montserrat massif, in Catalonia. There are route options for all levels!


1 Day

Mar - Nov




If you are in the area of Barcelona and want to leave the city to be in contact with nature, you cannot miss this program! I organize rock climbing trips in Montserrat, only 1 hour away from the vibrant city. 

Montserrat is a famous massif located in central Catalonia. It is shaped like a large saw, which is where its name comes from in Catalan. It is composed of many summits with a rounded shape. The walls are very steep and there are no sharp edges.

There are many climbing options in this massif. Indeed, there are 12 main climbing ranges. In each of them the opportunities for multi-pitch rock climbing are vast, and there is overall something for every level. The North face of Montserrat has the largest concentration of impressive walls. It is ideal for intermediate/advanced multi-pitch rock climbing.

It can also be a good chance to see the renown Montserrat monastery. And being so close to Barcelona, this destination is convenient in every sense!

Tempted to join me for some fantastic rock climbing in Montserrat? Then please send me a request indicating your level so we can decide together on the ideal route for you and your group. And if you want to further explore Catalonia, check out this beautiful hike in Pedraforca, a very special mountain.

From the station, we’ll take my car to access the best climbing spot according to your level, experience, the weather and your wishes.

You'll need climbing, sport or mid-mountain shoes and comfortable clothes according to the weather forecast. Take also a small backpack with water and some snacks.
