La Mussara is located at an altitude of 3000 feet on top of a steep hill facing the Mediteranean sea. It offers single and multi-pitch routes, mostly sport but also trad and aid, with route lengths varying from roughly 30 to 300 feet. There are about 500 routes with grades ranging from 5.5 to 5.13d, with a high concentration of excellent routes in the 5.9-5.11 range. The rock is a limestone very similar to that found in Siurana and offers a similar climbing style, although a specificity of La Mussara is cracks. The cliffs are south facing, and tend to be in the sun most of day although some shade can be found.
From the south/Reus: coming from Tarragona/Barcelona on the T-11, take exit 1 just after Reus toward N-420a. At the roundabout take the 2nd exit onto T-704 following signs for Maspujols/L'Aleixar/Vilaplana. Keep on following T-704 for about 6 miles / 10 km. You should be able to see the TV masts and the Antenes crag just under them for pretty much the entire drive. When you get close to the cliff, you should see sandy parking areas on each side of the road just before a sharp right-turn. Park here for the Antenes or La Isabel areas (if you see a sign for L'Albiol/TV-7046 at a sharp left turn, you have gone about 500 m/0.3 mi too far). Lo Raval and Lo Soterani are a bit further down the dirt road on the right side of the road. Continue for another 4 miles to the La Mussara village for Les Airasses or Les Campanilles.

A long and excellent climb that follows for a while a sustained crack with a not so straightforward crux, and then finishes with easier but very fun face climbing.Warning: 70 meter rope required....[more] Browse More Classics in International
