So after about 6 days of being in Barcelona, I decided to find out if I could continue doing one of my favorite activities while I was in Spain. In the states it is called climbing, in Spain it is called Escalada.
Climbing can be an indoor and an outdoor activity, I do not have a particular preference, although my experience is with indoor climbing. Indoor climbing can be broken down into two different types of climbing: bouldering and route climbing. Bouldering is usually a shorter climb with more tricky moves and maneuvers, while route climbing is usually a little easier just longer time spent climbing to add to the intensity.
I usually try to go 2-3 times per week and if anyone is interesting in coming, you are welcome to take part. I'll do my best to show you everything I know and I always enjoy the company. I'm going to make a huge generalization here, but I believe climbers to be the nicest people I have ever met, so you shouldn't ever feel intimidated.
