Highlights

 
     

    In this program I propose an ambitious and fascinating plan to go rock climbing in Catalonia, covering some of the most iconic walls in between Barcelona and the Pyrenees (province of Lleida).

    The idea is to climb 5 walls, multi-pitch, of different kind of rock, and different kind of levels. We can also decide on each rock if going for an easier or tougher route, according to the level of the climbers and how we are feeling. In all of these spots we have 200-300 meters routes.

    Starting from Barcelona, each spot is separated by 1 or 2 hours drive.  We will do one wall every day, staying in route refuges or hostels (several options available, that I can arrange according to what the clients require), taking some day to rest or do some sport climbing, before going back to Barcelona from Cavallers, the furthest point. The drive back takes around 4 hours.

    The first destination is Montserrat, an hour away from Barcelona, an island of small conglomerate needles for multi-pitch climbing. After that we will head to Vilanova de Meia, which is a region of calcareous (limestone) rock. The third spot is Terradets, and the forth is Collegats, which is big conglomerate rock. The last climb will be already deep into the Pyrenees, in Cavallers, in Aigüestortes National Park. The rock here is granite.

    In between some of the more demanding climbs we can take a day to rest, do some rock climbing, or just enjoy some of the beautiful landscapes that will be surrounding us in any of these spots.

    Rock climbing in Catalonia can be done all year round, so the same applies for this program. The only one of the five walls that can’t be climbed in winter is Cavalliers, but we can do instead another climb lower in the region.

    I can take up to 2 climbers with me, and I will provide all the technical equipment needed. And I also offer the possibility of assisting climbers who want to do autonomous climbs. So I’ll provide the equipment, take you around to these places, and assist in the logistics and everything that’s necessary.

    So, are you interested in rock climbing in Catalonia? Contact me! You’ll discover why this is such a famous destination for rock climbers from all around the world.

    About the Guide

     
     

    The story begins when your parents put you the skis when you are still wearing diapers, when you discover every summer the lakes of the Pyrenees, and after that you start going for the summits. When climbing and the feeling of freedom that comes with it gets you hooked, and there's nothing you can do about it.

    It continues when you choose your career following the name: Technical Mountain Engineering, in Lleida, close to the Pyrenees, and you start working as a ski instructor during weekends. And year after year, trip after trip, run after run, you start getting together with young mountaineers, and closer to the formation as a mountain guide.

    Expeditions, trips, some award and the constant formation and evolution are what built this long journey, which allows me to share the world that I love with others. And thanks to the works as a guide I can enjoy everything: the great moments that the mountain gave me, in the snow, rock or ice, and above all the moving feeling of realizing how small we are in the immensity of the summits.

    Had a wonderful week with Miriam in the beautiful Catalonia! Miriam was a fantastic guide and was very good at keeping everything safe, fun and sufficiently challenging. I only had minor experience with rock climbing prior to this trip and by the end of it I felt comfortable being lead on multi-pitch routes. I was very impressed by the beauty and diversity of Catalonia. In just a few hours of driving could the whole landscape can change completely. A perfect place for trying different rock types and to just enjoy the spectacular views!

    Climbing in Catalonia was filled with a lot of sends and copious amounts of laughter. Mirium is a bad ass woman guide!! She is simply amazing! I had a wonderful time checking out diff crags in Catalonia and would def recommend this trip. If you want to explore diff crags in Catalonia this is for you!! Mirium worked around my climbing ability and recommended climbs that was fun but challenging at the same time. I had an amazing time and I loved Mirium as my guide!!

    Miriam was a fantastic guide for me, and I felt completely safe with her. We had an amazing time climbing over two days, and she was patient, kind, and energetic. Go Miriam, keep climbing always! Also, Miriam is one of the few women guides in Spain, and I felt great about supporting her. Ladies - let\'s help each other continue to build our networks and businesses by investing in each other.

    Miriam was the best guide I could have asked for. I did the 1 week Rock Climbing in Catalonia and had a fantastic time! Miriam is friendly, fun and supportive. She catered the trip to my abilities and I am so glad I went off the beaten track and decided to do this trip as I saw a beautiful side of Spain that I had never seen before. Thanks Miriam!
