I would highly recommend Marc for climbers of all levels. He can provide you with all your equipment needs
and is a great teacher that speaks fluent english, spanish, and catalan. We had excellent communication together through the explore-share app and also personal email. I received specific information on how to meet Marc from the R5-GFC line from Placa Espanya in Barcelona to the estacion Monistrol de Montserrat. I was picked up at the station in Marc’s car and we drove up to the Monastery and parked. From there we rode a funicular from the Monastery to easy access trails to all of our climbs. As an experienced climber away on vacation with my family, I was able partner up with Marc and lead as many pitches as I wanted! I benefited from Marc’s expertise as a rock climbing guide and rock climbing beta. Additionally, Marc is a local and provided me with information about the area and potential future trips. I would highly recommend using Marc as a guide. Paul Connecticut, USA
Marc was a fantastic guide for our two days of climbing. We were visiting Barcelona from Los Angeles, and
my twin 16 year olds are experienced indoor climbers and relatively new to outdoor lead climbing. Marc made everything easy,
Xavi was an excellent and knowledgeable guide!
Great
Our guide Adria was easy-going & fabulous! He secured a funicular discount & completely transformed the climbing trip to
accommodate us as first time climbers. Even letting us progress to a FINAL VERTICAL CLIMB! An absolute perfect day at Montserrat! The views were jaw-dropping! Happy family of 4, Thankyou!
It’s a long slog of a climb, but doable as long as you’re reasonably fit (but you don’t need to
be an Olympic athlete). The views are stunning. The Puente (bridge) de Mahoma is mentally tough with steep drops either side and some uncomfortable climbs. I’d strongly recommend using a local guide as they help you with the planning, kit and techniques, they share knowledge of the surrounding area that you wouldn’t get otherwise and they help you over the more challenging stretches
Super climb
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 climbed for three days with Mon d’Aventura – climbing with Juan and Javi. Everything was well organized, the
guides were excellent and focused on finding good quality climbing and ensuring that my climbing days were fun. I thoroughly enjoyed my time out and look forward to returning and climbing with Mon d’Aventura again.
Xavi its a very simpatic and attention guy, with a great talking and explaining everything about Montserrat and climbing tips
near tô Barcelona. The experience it couldnt be better. I really apreciate.

Marc was amazing, very knowledgeable and friendly. Had a great first experience doing multi pitch. Highly recommended!
Marc has complete dominion over the english language, and was very communicative over emails and ensured we had a safe
and fun climb. He’s a local and knows the topology incredibly well. Incredible experience!
My day of climbing with Marc was the highlight of my trip to Catalunya! I felt safe the entire time
because he knew what he was doing and did a great job of teaching me. It was my first time doing any multi-pitch climbing and his instructions, tips, and supervision was perfect. He speaks excellent English. Marc helped me develop a lot as a climber. He knew the ins and outs of the routes we took and made the climbing experience very tailored to me – we climbed three routes in one day and I was exhausted by the end, in the best way possible. Marc brought along a camera and took about 40 great pictures during the climb which he emailed me the same evening. I appreciated that a lot because I wanted to share the experience with my family. The views are amazing in Montserrat too and the hike up (optional) was a nice warmup and fun. You can also take the Funicular, but it starts pretty late in the morning. The rock was super really fun to climb on because of how diverse the holds were and I felt the route ratings were very accurate. Great protection, but not a lot of exposure, depending on the route (lots of low angle slab, especially at the start of routes). Marc knew the larger area too. Unfortunately, it rained on one day, but we were going to go to another mountain range, which I was very excited for, the second day. I would 100% climb again with Marc and plan to if I am ever in Spain again. It was an absolutely amazing experience in great part because of him. Thank you, Marc!
Climbing with Marc at Montserrat was awesome! He contacted us before the trip to get an idea of what our
experience was, and what we hoped to get out of the trip, and he used the info to help design the perfect climbing day for us! We felt completely safe climbing under his guidance. Very nice guy, we had a great time with him. He was also kind enough to capture action photos of us during the climb. Also, the location is undeniably gorgeous. It made for an unforgettable and truly life-changing experience! I absolutely would recommend Marc, to climbers of any level!!
Francesc was awesome. He brought us on our first multi pitch. He made arriving at the belay stations and eventually
repelling super simple and safe feeling. The climbs he took us on we’re awesome and would have taken us hours to find if we just arrived at a new crag with a guide book (especially if the book was in Spanish) Definitely the highlight of our honeymoon.
Marc is a great guide. He was very professional, patient and super-friendly 🙂 Thanks for the memorable adventure!
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.
