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

Trigonemetria is a great moderate that climbs much better than it looks. The rock here, like most of the routes at Melafots, is nothing special, but its perfectly solid & not the least bit sharp, climbing generally on big flat edges. Begin up a shallow groove, then easily up to the obvious finger crack in the back of the clean block ~20 feet up. Lieback up the crack, then move right to a dark gray bulge. Harder moves lead over the bulge, to an easier slab above. Cruise up to the ominous roo...[more] Browse More Classics in International

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.
