There are different types of climbing and different types of climbing trips. There are climbing trips that you plan for a long time, maybe even for years. You spend sleepless nights and train like a madman to be fit enough to stay alive.

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+..."

Brokeback mountain

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.

More Siuranella

 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!

Cornudella de Montsant

Montsant again

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?
