Description

Climb the Catalonian rocks of Costa Brava as I guide you on a day tour in the northeastern region of Spain.

The Costa Brava (Wild Coast) stretches from the town of Blanes, 60 kilometres northeast of Barcelona, to the border with France.

Complimenting the warm climate, beautiful clear waters spilled over the rocky coves and rugged cliffs make Costa Brava a prime Spanish destination.

During the day we will climb Punta de Milá, a vertical to overhanging 100-meter wall, which guards the Mediterranean Sea. This climb never becomes difficult but it is very steep.

During the summer months, we will approach Punta de Milá by boat on a smooth ride from the nearby beach of Cala Montgo. During the spring and autumn months, we will approach Punta de Milá by rappelling, making the day more active and adventurous.

In the colder months, we will climb in Roca Maura, a south-facing wall situated just 500 meters inland, where we will take advantage of the warmer temperatures.

Reserve your place among the golden cliffs of Costa Brava for this rock climbing day tour. Surrounded by sandy beaches, tranquil villages and clear waters, Costa Brava is one of Spain’s top destinations.

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.

Marc was an amazing guide. This was my second outdoors climbing trip and he made this experience absolutely superb. He was very fun and professional, gave lots of good advice and courage, conducted everything in a very relaxed, fun and trustworthy manner. The booking process was very smooth due to great communication from his side. He also told us some local stories! Would 100% recommend.
