As it is still pretty hot over here especially for long multi pitches, I would probably go with the suggestion of Montserrat or at least keep it up North way. Many of the cliffs really do require a car to get to and from but others you could probably try - Siurana. Has a campground and you can walk to various areas. Lots of climbers so easy to pick up a partner. El Chorro in the South (where we are heading to in about a week and half) can be accessed by train and it is possible to walk to a number of the areas. Lots of climbers around so again can pick up partners or hitch a ride to the cliffs further away. But as I said - very hot. We tend to do short routes even though we love multipitches. I'm sure your friend will have an awesome time. Our second visit and even in this heat, we love it.
