We are travelling to the Barcelona region Nov 19-27 this year and are looking to jump on some classic lines! Will have a car and are happy to drive down to Costa Blanca or into the Pyrenees to make the most of the experience. 

Looking for awesome unique sport lines on some tufas, or some great multi-pitch trad routes, and hopefully some remote alpine adventures! 

Any website or guidebook suggestions would also be awesome!!

The Penon is pretty cool. I stayed at the closest apartments to the rock for ~2mo last winter.  But mostly trad.  What grades are you looking at?  Its a decent trck from Barca.  Should be good time for Chulilla - ~45min from Valencia.  Endless cool climbing, including great tufas, for all grades.  I'd stick with that over going down to Costa Blanca unless you had more time.  If the weather is good in Siurana or Margalef you can't beat it. Might be wet tho, but it's hit or miss that time of year.  Pyrenees will be too cold then.    Each area has its own guidebook - some are by Rockfax which has online versions.  You can also use

Thanks everyone!
Looks like we will be sticking with easier grades as I have a pulley injury. 3 weeks to rehab it and master-plan this adventure! 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
