Catalonia is one of the best places in Europe for rock climbing. This is the area where I come from. I’d like to show and share its secret places with you.
We will go to the main climbing massifs in the region: Montserrat, Montsec and Pedraforca. There we will discover amazing landscapes, with different terrains and interesting spots from a historical point of view.
Montserrat is a unique massif, a labyrinth of impressive needles with more than 4000 climbing routes of varied difficulties. Montsec is a mountain range of 40 km with limestone cliffs that go from 100 to 500 meters in height. Pedraforca is quite similar but it looks like an alpine area, with fir woods and snowy peaks in winter.
The program I am proposing is of at least 3 days. We will climb in the morning and use the afternoon to go from one place to another. For longer and more technical itineraries we may need 5 days. In any case, the program can be adapted according to your timing and fitness possibilities.
So if you are interested in this rock climbing tour in Catalonia, please send your request to book!

UIAGM/IFMGA guide from Catalunya.
I was born in 1959, and following a family tradition, I started practicing mountain sports. After a period of learning (in the mountains of Catalunya and the Pyrenees), the influence of the alpine literature drove me to high mountains and the Alps, where I climbed some of the most well-known peaks. Following that, I continued my mountaineering career with winter expeditions, expeditions outside Europe, and adventures on my own. This passion made me decide to become a mountain guide, and I am fully dedicated to this profession all year long.
Other interests I have are photography, writing and teaching.
