And then there are climbing trips that you do only because you happen to find cheap flights.
Johan & Rata arraconada 7a
This steep wall is the best part of Racó de Missa. Sadly, it's all pretty hard.
More Montsant, can you spot a climber on a 60 meter Camino del Rey 7b+?
Sector L'Obaga del Falcó in Arbolí
This was the crappiest crag we visited, even though Johan thinks it's "så jävla bra!"
A small ramp leads to a few steeper routes on the left side... no chalk on routes seems to be a good quality meter.
This is the best thing you can do in Falcó. You can take nice photos of Siurana
El Cargol, a cool pillar in Siurana. A climber on a 40-meter Populus 7a.
El Pati, this is where La Rambla 9a+ is located
L'Olla. For me, this was probably the best sector in Siurana (I don't like technical stuff)
Steep and juggy! Johan trying Bistec de Bíceps 7b+.
Me getting my ass kicked on Pota d'Elefant 7c+
Alexander Megos (I think) cruising up The Monster House (8c:ish project in the guidebook)
His friend wasn't too bad either, 8a+ on the 2nd go. "Yes this was a nice day, 8c, 8b+, 8a+..."
These guys again!?
Unknown climber on sector El Pati. La Rambla 9a+ is around the corner
Margalef, Racó de les Espadelles. This was easily the best crag we visited.
La Gomorra 7b+. One of the best routes I climbed.
Johan & La Drecera 7b
A 25-meter jugfest
Anu & Qué pasa Neng? 7a
Linus & Franja de Ponent 7a
Some crags around Margalef
Sector El Laboratori. Steep enough?
Linus & La Gomorra 7b+
Wtf is wrong with my fingers?
For some reason Johan decided to kick Linus in the leg. But no worries, Johan is a doctor!
Margalef offers also some easier climbing. Petra & Per Comencar 6a+
Magnus & an unknown 7a+
This seems to be the main hobby for climbers' kids
Margalef in the sunset, helt okej!
Back in Siurana. This sector is La Siuranella. You can see sectors L'Olla, El Pati and El Cargol on the right hand side.
Johan & Gruyére 6b
Looked like a nice warm up
Magnus & Filiprim 6a+
Siuranella was pretty windy, and a bit too vertical, so we decided to drive to Can Melafots, the upper sector in Siurana
Unknown climber & Boys don't cry 7c
If bacon breakfast is the best part of ice climbing, "myseld" with a cold one is the best part of sport climbing.
Our happy team!

Montsant from the other side
Mornings were cold
Cars didn't work
and sport climbing basically sucks.
Ok, it wasn't all bad.
Like eating in the sun was pretty nice.
Question of the week: wtf is this?
