I am moving to Madrid this fall for university and was wondering if anyone had any good beta for this area or any areas closer to Madrid. also if anyone lives in Madrid and goes to a good climbing gym please let me know where it is. Thank you!
p.s. if anyone wants to climb in madrid message me, I will need a partner!

The best crag in La Pedriza is "El Pajaro", for many, the high concentration of three stars trad routes: cracks, off width, friction, face climbing.
Some must-do it routes are: Sur clasica (6a), Este-Pedro Ramos (6a), West face (oeste) 6c, Tino 6a/A0 7a+,La Aparecida (6c+/A0 o 7b+).
The second in rating is El Yelmo. Awesome Trad climbing in friction. Don´t miss: Guirles (6b)or the scary Galvez (huge runouts, but amazing)...if you lead it, never forget...
If you are looking hard friction routes, don´t miss "El Euro crag" some of the best 5.13´ to 5.14
In La Pedriza exist also some face climbing with holds, in many places called mushrooms (La pared de Santillana, great easy trad climbing...runouts but easy)
Recommended visit: all year round but if you are looking for hard friction routes, only winter. Too hot in summer.
Enjoy!!! more than 2000 routes

hey all this comment is a little late (only by a few years) but anyone still out in spain madrid? im going to be heading out to spain soon and was looking for some more info on the bouldering in la pedriza as there is hardly anything on the web. Ive heard such great things but it still seems so undeveloped any knowledge at all would be welcome :)

hey, I live in Madrid and while I am still a baby climber, I have been looking for a climbing mate to have some adventures with. I'm thinking about heading up to La Pedriza this weekend just to get a scope on the place, maybe do some bouldering, and some light climbing.
