|Does anyone have beta on the best places to stay around Montserrat? Are there local huts or guesthouses? Thanks!|

I'll be traveling around this area (and Barcelona) alone from October 20th - 30th
I have a full trad and sport rack and would LOVE to find someone to climb with. Can anyone suggest a good way to find a climbing partner or even a guide here? I can't haven't found anything so far!
If anyone wants to climb while I'm out there I'd do anything from trad multipitches to bouldering.

Visited here this July and it was, simply put, amazing. Below is some up-to-date beta on the Monastery area!:
WHERE TO STAY/CAMP: You will need to park alongside everyone else (4 Eruo?) that's doing a day visit of the Monastery. They do not mind if you stay overnight, just make sure you pay (honor system until you leave, they'll for your ticket). Now once you've parked, you need to pack up and walk just about 20min to the campsite! You'll pass over the (obvious) bridge and you'll pass the Cremalera on the left, and the restaurant on the right. Just passed the restaurant (in the same building) you'll see the visitors' center, which is also below the giftshop, and they can point you to the campsite which just another 10 min walk or less up and left (they'll give you a map). KEEP IN MIND that ciesta is a big deal in Spain, and it effects the campsite hours, too. It's open from 8-2, then 5-8ish? (it's like 10 euro per person per night or something? Very cheap and has showers.)
Here you will meet Marcel Millet, a living legend in Spain. He'll give you your beta on climbing...as long as you speak Spanish...or interpret guidebooks really well. He's bolted 496 routes at Montserrat so he's trustworthy!
GUIDEBOOK: you will not find any guide covering the area in the neighboring giftshop...don't as why, they don't have it. But Marcel does!
FOOD/INTERNET: Marcel's campsites are very nice, and he even has a community kitchen with a fridge and a stove! So bring your own food, or eat at the few restaurants on the monastery. WIFI can be reached for free at the first main building on the left right after you park before you cross the bridge!
CLIMBING: It's so good. Color coded bolts...what more can you ask for? Seriously, just talk to Marcel. If you don't speak the language, just say "escalar". Hope this helps! Enjoy!

|Hi everyone. I've moved to Finland without my climbing partners ;). Heading to Barcelona Oct. 14-21 and looking for a safe, psyched partner. I have a trad rack and draws. Will probably be renting a car. For what it's worth, I'm an intermediate level climber. Usually OS 11s, sometimes get lucky on an easier 12, and project mid 12s. If interested PM me. Cheers, Mark|
