Description

Venture into one of the best rock climbing locations in Europe, the Pyrenees. Join me on this rock climbing week journey across some of its most incredible spots. Let me guide you through Cavallers, Estany Negre, the Ordesa Valley and Rodellar, amongst many other marvellous places.

The Pyrenees are the second biggest mountain range in Western Europe. Therefore, they offer endless rock climbing options. And on this rock climbing week, we’ll visit the best ones!

One of the best features here, is the hundreds of walls, rising above the 1,000 meters. Also, we’ll encounter limestone, as well as granite options, with a superb rock quality. What’s more, the weather is nicer, and the access much easier than the Alps.

Furthermore, we can find single and multi-pitch routes, ideal for different type of climbers. So, whether you are a beginner or an expert, looking to improve your techniques or for a new challenge, there’s a route perfect for you.

Another amazing feature is that we can climb all year round. So during summer, we can tackle areas like Cavallers, the Aigüestortes National Park, or even the Ordesa National Park. All of them offering ascents that range from 1,700 to 3,000 meters. And all of them combining long alpine routes, with sport and traditional ones.

Then, the rest of the year we can explore the Lleida Pre-Pyrenees, which stands at a lower altitude. It also offers medium sized walls rising up to 600 meters, and amazing multi-pitch bolted routes.

So, send me a request, and come with me on this rock climbing adventure. Explore the Pyrenees, while you enjoy some of its most breathtaking sceneries.

I also offer this rock climbing weekend in Girona (2 days), if you’re looking for a shorter trip.

We did out first multi pitch climb with Toti. It was amazing. He took into account of our experience and choose a climb that was suitable for both of us. We stayed in the Pyrenees at his Refugi after and did some hiking. I will come back and climb for longer with Toti.

I booked a private day of climbing with Toti because I really wanted to advance my climbing skills and learn from an expert with strong expertise and climbing wisdom. That is exactly what I received. Toti is incredibly wise, intuitive, and constructivist in his approach. While other guides I’ve climbed with have given me the beta: put your left foot here, put your right foot there…Toti never did that. Instead, he taught me strategy and encouraged me to find my own way. He taught me all about the importance of balance & how to achieve it. That is what I was missing as a climber, and he helped me to find it. He taught me how to be more efficient. He taught me how to push myself to my limit and how to listen to my body and know when it’s time to call it a day. He knew just how much rope to give me at any given point along the route and just what to say at the right time. I left Montserrat as a much stronger climber, and I owe it all to Toti.

Toti was totally amazing and patient and encouraging; we had three people of varying levels and he accommodated us all with great knowledge of the area (not only the history and monastery, but also local color and which routes were in the shade which was of utmost importance). Learned a lot and never climbed so fast in my life! Inspirational and humbling to see his level of fitness, experience, and dedication. Grateful to have had him as a guide and wish him the best in all future endeavors. Thanks from all of us Toti!

The communication was a bit confussing with the website and all, but the climbing trip was amazing. Toti knows all the good spots for all difficulties in the area, and I got to stay at his hostel for a few nights in the Pyrenees where there is good food and hiking.

Super great guide, with lots of experience. Toti give us the best advises during the climbing, making our 1 day climb become a personal lesson. Many thanks again for this experience ! Nothing to do with the guide, but I did not like booking with explore and share. I had the impression being harassed for immediate booking, receiving many push email

Toti Vales was the best mountain guide of all time. He was very friendly, and knowledgeable about mountain etiquette, climbing technique, and mountaineering in general. He provided gear for multipitch climbing up Sant Jeroni. It was spectacular and so enjoyable with a confident and safety-conscious guide such as Toti. He advised me on climbing conglomerate, which requires different technique to other types of rock. We also did some single pitch and climbed until the sun went down. Incredible day!

We highly recommend going climbing with Toti. He's an amazing instructor, guide and storyteller. He took us on our first multi-pitch climb and we felt equally safe and excited at all times of the climb. The route he selected was perfect for our skill level and the Montserrat scenery was majestical. Toti is a master at teaching you the right things at the right moment. He always stays relaxed which had a calming effect on us. His time management was also spot on – bringing us back to the car safely before sunset and after a full day of climbing. Thank you Toti, we hope to climb with you again soon! David & Brittany

Toti was an excellent guide. We were near Monserrat and the monastery. He gave me a wonderful history of the area as well as providing me with a great multi-pitch climbing experience. I would like to climb with Toti again if the opportunity arises!

The trip was definitely worth it! Toti is an amazing guy and an incredible climbing guide! Toti gave me all necessary instruction to go from Barcelona to Montserrat and was on time to meet me when I arrived. He is a very experienced climber and suggested a very good route option for my level. He is very patience and thoughtful when giving instruction and sharing his expertise. He was also very kind and showed me Montserrat mountain. I definitely recommend Toti if you're looking for a good climbing experience in Montserrat!

The guide Toti is a professional climber with great experience. He guide us through different drills in order to climb safely yet he managed to challenge us (new outdoor climbers). He was fun too. Unfortunately the booking process was a little slow but I hope this will improve I am so happy with the experience.

My rock climbing experience in Montserrat was amazing, and this is mostly due to my guide Totti. He was very knowledgable, patient, friendly and very professional. This is the second time I climb outdoor, and Totti gave me lot of advice and guidance which made the technical climbing in Montserrat a very fun and enriching experience. Looking forward to go back to Catalunya and will request Totti again. Thank you Totti for the awesome day: it was the highlight of my trip (first time ever) in Spain.

Highlight of this year! Toti is an amazing mentor (didn’t know we are going to be getting such a high calibre expert to guide us), we learned so much throughout the day, not only new climbing techniques and plethora of new tips and tricks, but we also learned something new about ourselves. Toti made us truly explore our climbing horizons and even managed to push us beyond our limits. Excellent experience and a beautiful day indeed. adam

Toti is an expert on climbing and he knows how to improve our climbing skill and how to make us enjoy climbing in Montserrat. Firstly I bit worry about email connection with him, but it was no trouble in the end. He also took us Montserrat viewpoints which was nice. I definitely recommend you to join this tour if you want to spend amazing time, not just seeing or hiking, but also more active and special. Thanks a lot Toti!
