After my last math classes on Saturday i just had enough time to get out for an afternoon of climbing in Garraf natural park. It is a very relaxing spot South of Barcelona, on the road to Sitges and with a nice view of the beach for added value:

First we did the Reversa route on Puig Martell, an easy 4-pitch undertaking mentioned in the 100 best climbs of Cataluña book. It said to bring trad gear along, but it was hardly needed as the route is well bolted today. This is the wall with the route going in the middle left of the picture, following the dihedral and than the obvious roofs:

We finished the day with one-pitch climbs at Penya Ginesta area, 5 min from the car (directions here) on very good quality limestone of moderate difficulty to please all involved! Last evening look at Casteldefels beach and time to go home:
