Description

Join me for as many days as you want for this great Bouldering adventure in Alcañiz, Spain!

Alcañiz is a small Spanish town located in the region of Aragon, in the northeast of the country. It’s only 2 or 3 hours away from Albarracín towards Catalonia. It has a beautiful historical center and it lies on the banks of the Guadalupe River.

It can be described as the new hotspot for Bouldering in Europe. This kind of rock climbing is performed on small rocks and we usually don’t use ropes or any other equipment. We just put our climbing shoes on, some chalk in our hands and a mat on the ground to prevent injuries.

There are lots of options for you to choose where to climb. The range of grades in the area goes from Fontainebleau 3 to 8b+. So I can show you the basics if you have no previous experience or guide to some awesome rocks if you are looking to practice or improve your level.

And this 1 or more days program is set to give you the chance to decide how many days you want to stay with me. So if you’re just visiting for the day or you want to spend a whole week rock climbing, everything is possible!

So send me a request to explore Alcañiz and its amazing rocks for as long as you want. I’ll show you all the best spots and you’ll have an amazing adventure!

And if you’re looking for other rock climbing spots in Spain, you might also be interested in my Guided 1+day rock climbing in Albarracín, Spain and my Sierra de Guara 1+day rock climbing course for beginners.

About the guide

I've been having a strong passion for outdoor sports for over 15 years. In the last 5 years, I've been working as a professional guide specialized in climbing and canyoning. My favourite is rock climbing, it doesn't matter the style (sport, trad, dws, bouldes, single or multipitch routes) the importat thing is climb high. As a native Mallorcan, Psicobloc or Deep Water Soloing, is in his genes. While he has a deep appreciation for the crags of Mallorca, Catalonia and Aragon, he has also climbed in Morocco, Turkey, Italy, France, Slovenia, Croatia, Tajikistan and China.

My 2 days climbing with Carlos was amazing, over my expectations, such an experience, I had a super great time and learned so much in little time, the best guide! Carlos is very professional, experienced, friendly and attentive. He makes you feel comfortable and safe, and also helps you to improve as a climber with excellent advices, very good in transmitting his knowledge. Gelida and Montserrat was beautiful with incredible views, lovely souvenirs, I warmly recommend Carlos as a guide!

Carlos was absolutely amazing. I had brought the experience for my partner for Christmas as he loves indoor rock climbing and he wanted to try outdoor for the first time. Carlos made the day so special for him, letting him lead the way and choose what he wanted to do/how much he wanted to do. Couldn’t fault him from start to finish, I’m just jealous I didn’t get to experience it myself! If we could give him more than 5*’s, we would. Highly HIGHLY recommend. Thanks so much Carlos!

Carlos was an excellent guide for the Cala Moli Via Ferrata. He did a great job ensuring we were safe, while allowing the space to explore and enjoy the route. He is extremely knowledgeable about climbing, and knew when to step in a lend a hand (or knee). The route itself is stunning, and I can't recommend it enough to others. Additionally, going in a private group with Carlos was well worth the slightly higher costs than the tours with 10+ people because it allowed for dedicated help, and not to mention - he took some wonderful photos for us. I can't wait to return, so we can do another climbing adventure with Carlos.

We thought we had arranged a trip with a guide but we got Carlos who was amazing. He greatly focused on safety and managed to challenge and grow all (to adults and 2 children at 14 and 11) at the same time and in a way which made the day truly awesome

Pau was an excellent guide who took the time to explain and teach me every aspect of the activities we were carrying out. He has excellent knowledge of all technical aspects of mountaineering as well as wonderful insights into the local flora and fauna. Great guy, excellent guide and a great laugh as well.

I really enjoyed my day of multi-pitch climbing with Carlos. He is extremely knowledgeable about climbs in the area, climbing technique, and about its history and culture as well. He tailored the session to meet all the goals I wanted to reach, and made me feel safe and comfortable throughout. I highly recommend him as a guide!

Carlos is an excellent guide. He taught and helped us move up in skill. Carlos suggested multiple crags and what he thought would be appropriate and fun for us. Explore share was an easy company schedule our adventure. The website itself was a bit difficult to manage at the final point of booking . Otherwise I would given 5s all around. Thanks for a great event.

Explore-share service was just what we needed. Hooking us up with a qualified guide that knows the area is invaluable when you are traveling out of country. I will use your service again!

Spending the day with Carlos was great! he's a great climbing coach and a super nice guy. He taught us a ton of tricks and we reviewed all the safety infos, but little by little he gave us more and more freedom, which also gave us the confidence we needed. All in all it was a great experince.

I went climbing with Carlos for 2 days in Montserrat and Pared de les Baggases. Carlos was not only a very skilled rock climbing guide (route finding, safety, etc) but as also very pleasant and social to be with (he speaks very good English). He took his time to also talk about the surroundings and history of the climbs we made. I highly recommend to go climbing with Carlos!

Had a great day climbing with Carlos. He's knowledgeable about, and devoted to, the sport. I only had a single day during my trip to Spain to climb and was looking to get on some of the best sport routes in the area - and Carlos did not disappoint. As a guide he was skilled and safe, ensuring that we had a shared understanding of the safety systems. As a climbing partner he was insightful in recommending routes, providing beta, and the softest of catches. We chatted the whole time about the sport and the industry and the various features of routes. Highly recommend Carlos as a climbing guide if you're in the Barcelona area and I will definitely look him up again next time I'm in Spain without a belay.

Carlos is awesome! He was extremely responsive after booking and tailored a trip to fit our level and interests. He helped us manage logistics (places to stay, where to meet), and was prompt each day picking us up. Carlos knows the area and guided us to gorgeous routes at our level. This area has legendary sport climbing, which we only had limited gym experience with. Carlos led at first, but taught us to lead by the end! He also took & shared great photos of the trip! Highly recommended!

It was an awesome trip and a good first exposure to climbing in Spain! For some in our group, it was their first time to climb outdoors and Carlos provided great advice for transitioning from indoor to outdoor climbing. For me, I got a lot of useful tips on how to be more effective and to improve my technique outdoors. I would recommend Carlos to anyone looking for a great guide and a fun time out on the rocks!

It was excellent, Carlos is very knowledgable, we felt secure at all times and very fun, climbing Sol-Solet Montserrat was an excellent experience that I hope to do again. Communication prior to the trip was great with Carlos every time, he gave us good options from the start and gave us the tranportation info. Everything was excellent, fun, great and adventurous just like me and my wife hoped for, thank you for everything. We hope to do it again soon. Saludos.

Carlos is an excellent climbing instructor. Not only he has amazing climbing skills but he may be the best belayer in the world;)). He is also a great teacher, very knowledgeable, adapts to different skill levels, puts extra homework into finding routes and activities that are challenging yet enjoyable. There were two of us, with different skill levels and he managed to set up activities in a way that we have got the most of every minute. regarding the commucation: he was very quick to respond, was inquiring about what we want to get out of the trip and based.on this recommended the agenda. A very lovely guy overall. After a bit of quizzing I've learned that he climbed with some big names from Spain and UK. Oh, and he has a great crag dog - as him to bring her along:)

Carlos is the best mountain guide around. He was obviously very experienced and has been climbing for many years. I like how we were constantly learning under his supervision. He was also flexible in every way. I, as a pretty beginner climber, was able to enjoy the routes he took us on just as much as my friend, an intermediate climber. He was knowledgeable of the area and knew all the best climbing spots. 11/10 would recommend!

Carlos was great guide!! Very sweet, fun, and knowledgeable person. Perfect companion for this adventure! The trip included a mix of everything: hiking, climbing, rappelling, cliff jumps, etc. We also began the trip a bit earlier than most and had the canyon pretty much all to ourselves. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

I had a terrific time. Carlos did an excellent job of organizing the day - making sure I had proper equipment, and knew how it differed from climbing gear. He did a great job of assessing my skill level as a first time via ferrata/intermediate climber, and had me tackle increased challenges as my confidence grew. Because I finished more rapidly than planned, we also did an enjoyable hike. He was excellent company; I would recommend him to others, and happily  climb ir do via ferrata with Carlos guiding again. Carlos also made a great suggestion when he pointed me to Montserrat as a place to stay. Overall, just what I was looking for.

The trip itself was handled very professionally and Carlos was both a personable and experienced guide. We felt that we were in truly capable hands and he made sure we were safe, having fun, educated and challenged… We would love to do another trip with Carlos and highly recommend him.

The three days that Carlos and I spent together have been a very constructive experience. He is a easy going person who has a good skill for sharing his knowledge. In this way you believe his assumptions and you practice his exercises because you understand the reason behind them. On the top of this he knows very well all the spots and routes in every sector. Highly recommended.
