Can Boquet is one of the oldest and most famous bouldering sites near Barcelona, situated only 30min from the city!
The climbing is on medium quality granite lowballs usually with flat landings. The climbing style is very technical with crimps and slopers. The granite is sharp so mind your finger skin as it won’t last many days.
Most of the crags are medium sized and very close to each other. This means that the approaches are short and the area is also family friendly. Majority of the routes are easy or medium level which makes it a perfect place for beginners. But there are some harder routes for the expert climbers too!
The weather is hot and humid due to the influence of the sea nearby so you’d want to climb during winter for better friction. The other seasons are less optimal but the boulders inside a forest provide some shade making climbing possible also during summer.
While at rocks, remember following:
· Don’t block the road while parking, use the designed places
· Don’t walk too close to houses or cross any fields, follow the paths
· Clean trashes and tick marks
