This small cliff has a surprisingly large number of routes. With a Northeast-facing aspect, its also a great hang on a hot day. Although the twenty or so routes here range in difficulty from 5.10+ to 5.13a, the crag really shines in the 5.11-range, offering a number of popular, high quality lines, particularly on the left end of the cliff. This crag tends to be rather popular, perhaps because many of the moderates are relatively steep for their grades. The right half of the cliff is distinguished by a severely undercut base, that has resulted in a few burly, bouldery routes that finish with realtively easy slabs.
Head Northeast out of Margalef on the T713 for about 1.5 Km. Turn right onto a paved road signed for "Embassement", passing under large power lines. Follow the paved road down the hill a short ways to some small cobblestone towers & park at a lot on the right near a creek. Follow a good wooden bridge across the creek then turn left on the old dirt road on the other side. Follow the road for ~100 yds. Follow the second cairned trail up the steep hillside for ~2 minutes to reach the right end of the cliff.
