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

The premiere pitch at Siurana, and probably among the very best sport climbs in the world. This stellar route climbs a beautiful orange & black streak of amazing sinker pockets & is an absolute must-do for anyone capable of the grade.Scramble up to the exposed ledge. There is a manky belay bolt here, but it makes a lot more sense to leave the belayer on the ground. Blast up the 105 degree orange panel, making huge moves between ergonomic pockets. The holds dwindle towards the looming black b...[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.
