Rock Climbing Manual

One of the best things about living and working in the mountain community is realising that it really is a genuine ‘community’!

We hear that word banded around to describe all sorts of different groups of people, but for me it has always meant a group that share what they have. It’s one of the core philosophies behind Crag Rats BCN and it makes me feel warm and fuzzy when I see others in this mountain world that feel the same way.

Access to education is also incredibly important as rock climbing becomes ever more popular and the cost of equipment comes down. My greatest fear is that a young adventurer will be inspired by a climbing video and head out on those mountains with no knowledge of the environment they will encounter or the second hand equipment they have slung over their shoulder. It’s a recipe for disaster.


Fortunately we have pioneers like Felix Carriedo who are willing to offer their experience and knowledge to people who don’t have the means to afford the climbing membership or lessons and aren’t lucky enough to have a mentor.


Felix has created a rock climbing manual that covers all the basics of climbing in fantastic detail and it’s available for free. It’s just a shame it’s only in Spainsh
