Situated 35Km northwest of Barcelona, Montserrat quite simply offers some of the best multi-pitch sports climbing in Spain, with its many towers and pinnacles of conglomerate mountain rock, providing a fantastic playground for rock climbers. Many of the routes are between 200m & 300m long, characterised with hanging belays, as the routes are generally steep with very few ledges.There is a great variety of rock climbing to be found at Montserrat from single pitch to multi-pitch routes. There are over 2,000 routes here with a good mixture of sport routes and traditional routes. With its nature of long multi-pitch routes at Montserrat it is advisable to use twin ropes as many of the dissents are via abseil. Twin ropes are also ideal for the traditional routes along with a full rack including nuts and cams.
