Rock Climbing Jan 24-30?
Posted January 13th, 2013 - 11:48 am by from Vancouver, Canada (Permalink)
Hi there,

I am coming to Barcelona next week and looking to do a bit of climbing while I'm there. I am from canada and currently on a 7 week Europe trip. I love climbing and hoping to find some people to climb with and/or meet new friends. I brought my climbing shoes and harness only.

Experience; I boulder V2-3, top rope (6b+/ 10d), sport climbing ( lead up to 6a+/ 10b) I just got into crack/trad climbing this summer.. following only :) I am always up for trying new things and to challenge myself.

Shoot me a message if you want to climb or know of any gyms/ easy places to access.

Cheers!

I need a belayer during the week, i have equipment for sport, and i know some easy places close to Barcelona. If you want, you can find me on Facebook so we can coordinate a visit to Garraf when you are here.

Hi Karly,

I'll be most likely going somewhere to climb outside during the weekend. Not sure where or when but I let you know once it is more clear.

Besides that I'll be going the day after tomorrow(17th) (I usually go once a week to climb there or in the free area of la foixarda) to climbat la foixarda, indoor rock climbing place in montjuic, not so far away from your hostel. I am actually living not too far away from there. If you are interested in coming to the indoor climbing let me know.

Salut,

Joan.

Hey Joan,

That plan sounds great. I arrive at around 12:45pm at the airport then have to make my way to the hostel so i might miss climbing that day... maybe do a evening indoor session if your up for it,

And yes id love to do some outdoor over the weekend and do indoor :)

Ill be able to contact you via internet once im at the hostel then we can go from there. Looking forward to climbing!

Karly

Heyy!! How are you guys?
I've been seing what you posted and I'm going to Barna on the 24th and come back to Lisbon on the 27th and since I never climb in Barcelona I'd love to go clim during this week (to Montserrat, Garraf or whatever you advice)!

I don't have as much experience as you and the maximum that I climb "by myself" was 5/5+ but I'd love to improve or at least, try some Catlunya Rocks and to see other climbers do great stuff! (:

Let me know if you guys are up to it.

Saludos!
