Catalonia is one of the best places to climb in Spain. Plenty of sport crags known worldwide and lots of trad/adventure climbing areas.
You can find different types of rock, but the most usual is limestone, with some really particular and nice conglomerate areas like the mistical Montserrat.
You'll need a car to get to most of the climbing areas

Though merely a boulder problem, this is one of the classic power routes of Siurana, and one of the best 7c's period. The wall is basically a pegboard of sinker 2-finger pockets on a 30 degree overhang. The sequence is trivial to decipher from the ground, so tendon strength & attitude are the only barriers to the on sight.Work up to the horizontal break, then make a long reach to the first pocket.

Yo, if anyone happens to be in Barcelona there is a really cool FREE urban climbing area called La Fuixarda. lafuixarda.blogspot.com/ Its a tunnel that climbers took over and put up some fun traverses and sport climbing routes. Its got lights at night and can be climbed 24/7/365. If anyone is in town and looking for a partner to climb sport I got all the gear so hit me up, I'll be in town until mid July 2010. Peace.

I will be in Barcelona this summer (probably a week) and have a lot of time flexibility in traveling around Catalonia. Does anyone have any beta on climbing guides in the area?

If anyone climbing in the 11-12 ranges is looking for a sweet place to climb then check out Sadernes, probably my favorite place in Spain.

How easy is it to find partners in siurana, margelef, rodellar or terradets. Is the scene kind of like Thailand or potrero were you can go solo and meet climbing partners fairly easy. Are the campgrounds community based were everyone hangs out together or do most people stick to themselves. I really want to do an extended trip to northern Spain but don't have a motivated partner to go with. Any info is appreciated.
