Hey climbers! I'm going to be Interrailing through Spain for about a month and trying to catch as much rock climbing and bouldering as possible (travelling with a friend that is not climbing). We're in Spain from August to September. Do you have any good ideas for weekend or day excursions out of the city? Would also love for people to join me, feel free to send me a message :)

Steffi, I won't be in Barcelona until another week or so :( but check my reply on the Valencia thread!

Diego, I have everything we need, how can we get in contact? My number is 0046703064138, maybe I can text you when we get to Barca? How exciting!

ok, when are you coming to bcn? do you have whatsapp? my phone number is +34 622647652
I m currently working so let me know when you want to go climbing...An eventually i can provide a couch, actually we have a free room at the neiborhood of Gracia.
The climbing areas i really like are casteldefels (can Roca), a little bit dirty, but nice rock, not so easy...Cabrera de Mar...in the forest, nice too, and behind Montserrat, collbató...i like this one, great place.
well, see you here, adios!

Hmm we don´t know yet but probably in a couple of days. I got your textmessage so now we can contact each other :) I will text you when I know the exact days so you can plan a little bit. It would be really nice if we could crash on your couch, thank you for the offer! However, a friend of a friend has already offered us a place, don´t know if he will be there during our stay though so maybe. As you see, we are not very planned travellers hehe. But we will keep in touch! I´m superexcited!

Hey Diego! We will arrive in Barcelona on Saturday and stay until the 12th. The Cabrera de Mar area looks really good, wish I could convince my friend to come to Barcelona earlier.

Cheers

Did you get the message I sent you earlier, not quite sure if it was posted or not, internet's a bit whacky here :)

Posted September 7th, 2012 - 8:35 pm by from Barcelona, Spain (Permalink)
Hi, I havent got any message...

Posted September 8th, 2012 - 8:00 am by from Porto Alegre, Brazil (Permalink)
Oh... anyways we just arrived in Barcelona, can climb any day, any time from now to Tuesday. We sorted out accomodation but thank you for the offer! I´m definitely not a professional climber either, I climb around 6a but didn´t climb in a while so we can start easy and just enjoy :) I have a beginner friend that wants to join as well! Did you go to Tonsai in Thailand?

Cheers!

cool, lets do it on monday then! but it would be good to meet each other first.. tomorrow ill be working from 5 to 11 pm, can meet you after or before. we can eventually meet in Plaza Espanya, then we go to the climbing area, wich is 10 minutes walk from there....And if you ve got any spanish number (a friend) send it to me, please..
Oh yeah, went to Tonsai for a couple of days: got stucked for 20...was great, living in a small hut in the jungle next to the best walls, and sorrounded by the best people...how I miss that!

Posted September 8th, 2012 - 4:57 pm by from Porto Alegre, Brazil (Permalink)
Sounds perfect! We can meet before work maybe? Plaza Espanya seems like a good an easy spot to meet up in. I don´t have a spanish number but you have my Swedish one right? What time would be good for you? Maan ever since I heard of Tonsai I´ve been wanting to go, sounds amazing!

See you soon!

Hi guys,

I'll be going to la foixarada this afternoon with rope and all the stuff and one or two friends.

Let me know if you want to join, will go around 19:30 or so. Sorry for the short notice, I never know when I can manage to go until pretty late.

I can pick you up in plaça españa, 15 min away by walk from la foixarda. I'll be going by moto with the equipment and I can bring up one of you : )

You can reach me here or 678370616

Salut!

Joan! Are you going to climb in Barcelona some more during the next 10 days? We will arrive in a couple of days and would love to go climbing.
