Hi guys,
I am going to arrive on 11th of july in Barcelona and I want to check out the bouldering gyms in the city. Is there anyone who'd like to join me? I've been bouldering and sport climbing for almost 3years. I am quite flexible on the plan and i also need some suggestions about the bouldering gyms in the city.

Gracias.

Hey,
I would like to join, arrived here a week ago, so I don't know anything about the gyms in the city, but would like to check them out.

You must have a look to La Foixarda!

Foixarda is ok for bouldering and has a good community but for a serious gym try Free Bloc ( expensive but very steep and some agressive routes) or Climbat (cheaper and easier)
Question is why stay in the city?
Some excellent boulders close by, personal favorite is La Riba as you can get there by train ( 6.50 returning at 18.10 on Sunday I think from Sants Estacio) Also lots of shady sport there and a river to swim in so great for the summer!
Good Luck!
