The philosophy of climbing on Montserrat is strangely similar to a dance or ballet. Most people who don't know this world might think of climbers as brave (or unwitting) people risking their lives amid shouts of euphoria and cans of Red Bull. But climbing is a much more subtle, refined, and mental activity, and, if you want to call it, sporting. With body and mind, climbers solve the challenge that the rock proposes at any given moment to progress with grace, cunning, anticipation, and sometimes strength and power. A sequence that may often seem impossible to solve at first glance, looking at it carefully, placing our feet well, and observing with full attention, we move, learn, adapt, and finally overcome the test. The impossible has become possible.
And why dance or ballet? If you ask a climber what he or she liked about a particular climb, the answer is sure to be: the aesthetic movements, the necessary coordination, and the fluidity. Also, the elegance, the beauty, or, in their case, the "dirty" climbing.
When we question a climber after climbing a specific route, he will always talk about the sensations he has experienced while progressing on the rock and also about the state of mental concentration he has reached.
Montserrat Mountain is probably the world's most famous conglomerate climbing destination and is located just 50 kilometers from Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia.
