    Hello everyone,

    Looking for some advice/input for a possible trip this summer.  My girlfriend and I are considering a trip to climb in Europe and are thinking either France or Spain.  Considering places like Monserrat, Bourgogne and Grenoble to name a few...maybe even some bouldering at Fontainebleu.  Any and all beta concerning climbing, sights, accommodation, etc is welcome.  Thanks!

    Hi Andy,

    Tons of places to climb in Spain. What are you looking for? Sport, trad? Are you focusing in the Northern area? When in summer? If you can tolerate the heat of the south, El Chorro in Malaga is highly recommended. I may even have some guide books.

    Cheers, Antonio.

    Have you considered going to Corsica?  Its on my top ten list of places to visit.  Classic and stunning.  Very popular place to go for Europeans but under the radar for most Americans since it takes a little more effort to get to. The GR20 is kind of a right of passage for many adventuring Europeans.  Here's a link to an article on Corsica in Climbing magazine.
