Busco compañero/grupo de escalada!
Posted July 5th, 2011 - 1:02 pm by from New Orleans, United States (Permalink)
Hola a todos! Estoy buscando alguien con el que ir a escalar en cualquier sitio (garraf, st. pol de mar, fuixarda etc.) Llevo sobre 2 o 3 meses escalando, asi que mi nivel no es tán fuerte (6a), pero me encanta y quiero practicar mas y mas! Tengo los zapatos, arnés, rapelador, magnesio. No tengo cuerda o chapas. He escalado en garraf (roca natural), st pol de mar (pared artificial)y fuixarda. Mi horario es bastante abierto, estoy libre casi todo el tiempo, y siempre con ganas de escalar.


Venga! escalamos!

Hey man! I'd love to climb with you. The thing is, I might be traveling at that time. I was thinking of trip up through France and maybe to Belgium, before the end of this month. I'm not exactly sure when this trip is going to happen just yet, so I might be back in BCN before you get here. In that case, yeah!

I'll let you know what happens.

peace

I'll be in BCN/Catalonia in July as well and I climb easy 6's so we all are somewhat at the same level. However, I think that I'll be there more in the beg/mid of July.

I have been thinking to go Cavallers(Val de boi) to do bouldering and hiking but if I we could find something out I can change my plans. I do have harness but probably I have to leave rest of the gear back home. I think one interesting place could be Rodellar (that would need camping in there but I carry a tent)...or do you have something particular in mind?

Rodellar its the paradise for climb but you should stay in a camping, also there is a free parking where people stay with theirs vans, but is not allow to put a tent . margalef its also a good place but really different of rodellar another kind of rock , but its possible to camp with tent and even prepare a bbq. if i have free time at the end of the month i´ll let you know and i would love to go in one of this places . also ihave the book about lleida climbing where there are many good places to go around 2 hours from barcelona .
ps: alex man this saturday there is a open solo deep water competition in montjuic (there is a big swiming pool close to the stadium , so they gonna put a wall of 9 meter overhanging over the pool), i´ll be there with some friends and we will be taking part in the competiton its 20 euros the inscription and you don´t have to be an expert , you can try so many times as you want . i´ll be there around 10 am . let me know if you wanna come

Hi guys...i am also looking for some climbing partners..but i will be more around Barcelona and will try to discover crags around here...from Montserrat to some other local climbing areas. I heard there is quite few of them around..

a friend from BCN gave me this link www.ressenya.net. I think we can find something good...what do you think?


Posted July 8th, 2011 - 9:48 am by from Barcelona, Spain (Permalink)
i konw very well the area around barcelona but some of the places are not good for climb now because of the sun .and montserrat for example the north side its good for summer but most of the route in that area are long routes around 300mts .then in the south side there is a area called vermell del chicarro where is great in summer time but just from 2pm when the shade its , the place its a amazing for sport climbing with routes around 20 and 40 mts from 6a till 8a . also there another place in the north side for sport climbing and long routes called san benet ,i don´t recommned this place cuz in some routes its very dangerous , like the first bolt around 4mts high with a really difficult step to pu it and then the next bolt 4 mts more .
maybe when everybody is here in barcelona we can

O great Andreas...i ll be going to Montserrat on Sunday 10th of July, i guess in the afternoon. If you are up for a climb it would be great. Thanks for this info...

i would like to go , but finally i´m going to tres ponts (close to andorra ) to spend the weekend , i´m coming back sunday night , but i´m free for monday

andres: thanks for the good advices!


I left also barcelona and moved to the mountains for a while. I will be at val de boi and refugi de ventosa until next friday. so if you are interested a bit colder weather, nice views and good climbing(though I havent seen it bymyself, heard there is boulderin, sport and trad, multi-pitch) I recommend to come here!

From Bcn bus to pont del suert and from there to Boi where lift/hike all the way up to presa de cavallers. When you see the only blond guy in the valley that's probably me and you have just fin yourself a climbin partner ;)
