Description

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.

Getting There

You'll need a car to get to most of the climbing areas

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?

Peace! Apr 15, 2011

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. Mar 1, 2013

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. Jun 2, 2013

Moving to Barcelona for the year and looking for climbing partners! Let me know. Also looking to buy a tent/sleeping bag & pad if anyone is leaving Europe and doesn't want to take theirs with. Jul 3, 2016
Hey, I'm going to be in Catalonia for the next week or two, anyone want to climb with me? or have advice on how to get partners? I've been climbing ten years and I am a professional belay slave. Feb 14, 2017
I'll be in the Barcelona area coming from the States from September 6th-September 8th looking for an climbing partner. Anyone available that would want to hook up with me? Aug 24, 2017
Will be in the area at the end of February. 20-24th. Looking for a sport climbing partner to explore & enjoy some of the best climbing in the world. Reach out if available! Jan 12, 2018
Planning on being in the area this coming June 2018 and looking for a climbing partner or advice on how to link up with people looking for climbing partners :) Jan 16, 2018
I am moving to Spain later this year (most likely near Montgat for work). Does anyone know what the climbing is like in the area? How easy is it to get to outdoor crags or an indoor gym after work?

It looks like Cataluna has a great crag area but does anyone have suggestions on how to meet partners who might have cars to travel to the area? Apr 10, 2019
