First visit to Sant Joan and a new home

Sant Joan de Vilatorrada
Me sending a nice 6B

Breakfast in the sun A couple of weeks ago we finally dropped by Sant Joan de Vilatorrada, the big bouldering area outside of Manresa and about an hours drive from Barcelona. I’ve visited a fair amount of bouldering areas around the world and my first impression was more than positive. There are some huge boulders out there! The rock type is limestone covered conglomerate and the climbing fairly athletic. There is a guidebook called E-Bloc that covers this area as well as 11 other Spanish bouldering areas. It will of course be sold in the on-line store when it opens, we are now only awaiting a deal with DHL or other distribution company, and also in our planned mini-climbing store in our house by Montserrat. House by Montserrat? Oh yes, we have now moved to a really nice house in the village of El Bruc right by the foot of the mountain. With this perfect location we easily can explore the Lleida-area and also provide guidebooks to passing climbers, have crashpads to rent, sell 80-meter ropes for our long routes or simply offer you a cup of coffee in the morning or a beer on our terrace in the afternoon. Let us know when you’re close by sending me an e-mail or giving me a call at +34649105141. We look forward to meeting you!

Anyway, back to Sant Joan de Vilatorrada. Here is a nice trailer from some local climbers. You can check out their newly opened blog Salvanebleau for more videos and inside information.
