CLIMBING HOLIDAYS IN CATALUNYA

Tim visited from NYC and we went climbing in the best climbing areas in Catalunya.face

On Monday at 9am i picked up Tim at a bar near La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona and an hour and a half later we were already parking the car in the parking lot of the El Duc sector, in Arboli

Tim is an experienced climber. He´s climbed for many years and now he had 5 days to climb in the area. The main reason for his trip was to climb in this region so known worldwide. So after a good warm-up, we started to climb little more difficult routes and, as I imagined, it was not a problem for him. Our first day of climbing came to an end and we went to the bar for a beer and plan the next few days.

The second day we went to climb in Siurana. We toured some of the most emblematic sectors, such as El Pati, El Aparador, EL Cargol and La Siuranella Este. Tim was able to lead all the climbs and we had a great day, full of laughs and good times. At the end of the day we stroll through the town of Siurana and enjoy the majestic views.

The third day we went to Margalef. The chosen sector was Can Pesafigues, which has easy climbing routes, but also some slightly difficult routes. It was very motivating to see Tim try harder climbs than the ones he usually tries and be able to send them.

On the fourth day we decided to practice some multi pitch maneuvers, since the next day we would go climbing in Montserrat. So we stayed in Siurana and we were able to refine and practice all the necessary maneuvers to safely climb the next day.

On the fifth and last day we started early. Tim had to be at the airport at 3pm to get on the plane. At 8:30 am we were parking the car in the Santa Cecilia parking lot in Montserrat. We arranged all the gear and started hiking. We would climb on the Punsola Reniu. A little later than 9:30 we started climbing. The first pitches are fast. At the 6b pitch, I climb first and belay Tim, who elegantly climbs the pitch. I lead again and belay Tim on the 6c+. This length is somewhat more difficult. It is a long, hard and somewhat polished, but Tim manages to resolve the movements and although he falls once, he manages to pass and we continue from there to the summit.

We take the mandatory summit photos and a couple of rappels leave us on the path that goes down the Cavall canal. At 13:20 we are back in the car. We have plenty of time to get to the airport.

It's been an amazing week with Tim, lots of laughs, long talks at the bar after climbing and good times shared on the wall. Thanks Tim.

Thanks Tim

Starting from scratch, my daughter and I have learned a lot of climbing techniques while having fun thanks to Santi, an experienced professional climber and a great teacher. I am glad we chose Southclimb and we are looking forward to the next lesson in the mountains!

Una experiència molt bona. En Santi no només encomana la passió per l'escalada, sino que a més contagia la seva cura per la natura. El seu bon fer i la relació amb tots els nens dels grup ha estat molt positiva. Hem après un munt de coses sobre l'escalada i hem fet un bon amic. Gràcies Santi! Fins aviat!

El curset ha sigut genial. L'Erik s'ha sentit molt a gust amb l'instructor i amb el grup. Creiem que ha millorat i ha madurat molt en escalada. Realment ha sigut una sort fer el curs.

Lo hemos pasado muy bien en el curso de iniciación, aprendiendo a escalar en boulder, de top... mediante juegos y explicaciones, sencillas y practicas :) Gracias a Santi x el buen rollo y ahora nos toca seguir practicando, un abrazo!

Excellent!

Desde principio de año que me he apuntado al boulderlleida y me tomo más enserio la escalada; de entre las actividades se organizó una salida a Margalef, para coger contacto en roca y salir del roco. Allí tuvimos el placer de estar con un técnico de southclimb. Era mi primera vez en roca y tenia el temor de hacerme daño y no aprovechar el día, pero me dieron la confianza de hacerlo y de superar mi nivel, fue un día fantástico y solo pienso en repetir a poder ser con boulderlleida y southclimb, son unos cracks y unos profesionales!!

– Noe, Catalunya.

Three days of sport climbing, two days of multipitch. Excellent experiences and beautiful environment at Montserrat and Siurana’s surroundings!

We had the absolute best time climbing with you in Spain. We will cherish these memories for a lifetime and hope to return to climb with you in the future.

What we loved about climbing with you:
- your flexibility with our travel plans and jet lag
- your excellent communication skills in English
- your knowledge of local culture, places to eat and history of the location (we loved going to the climbers bar, meeting your friends, climbing in Reus and visiting Siurana town)
- your incredible experience with both ski and climb guiding
- your climbing ability!! #mindblown
- your friendly nature and willingness to understand what we (as your clients and friends) need.
- LUNA!!!!

Thanks so much for an incredible time. We can't wait for the next one :)

Hugs
