VR Climbing Guidebook for Spain
This guidebook provides information for Siurana and Margalef
Siurana is a big place that caters for any climber. for this project I only focused on three sectors: Siuranella East, L’Olla and El Pati, however there are lot more sectors out there.
The rock is limestone, featuring strikingly orange walls with black and grey stripes. Most of the holds are crimps, with climbing grades usually higher than 7a’s (23 onwards). The routes at Siuranella and El Pati are 30 metres high or more in average. Routes at L’olla are 25 metres in average. I would recommend a 70/80 metres rope if you want to enjoy the whole climbing gamut in these areas.
The ideal season would be spring and Autumn, however people flocks into the winter season due to the sunny and dry conditions. El Pati is shaded in the morning and sunny in the afternoon, while Siuranella East is the other way around.
The one thing that caught my attention here is the density of climbs in the area, basically everywhere you look is bolted.

Margalef is one of the flagship climbing areas in Spain featuring conglomerate rock, which means it is a pocket fest for climbers. There is a climb for everyone here, slabs, rooves, easy climbs to really hard climbs (some of the hardest in the world). Although usually the climbs are about 25 metre, some climbs in Margalef can go up to 45 metres, so if you want to enjoy the whole climbing gamut of this area I would suggest to bring as a minimum a 70 metre climbing rope. The ideal seasons to climb here are either Spring or Autumn.
