Description 

Southwest and west facing tuffa climbing on grey, orange and brown streaked limestone. About 200 routes from 5.9 to 5.14. The best climbing is from 5.11+ through 5.13+ grades.

Amazing features on mostly overhanging stone. Can be hot if the sun is out and it is warm. Best to visit during the colder months, October through March or so.

Getting There 

Find Ripoll north of Barcelona or west of Girona and head to Gombren. After passing through Gombren continue on the main road and follow signs to Sanctuario Del Montgrony, you will have to make 2 right turns and the road will get progressivly narrower to the point where 2 cars will pretty much not fit past each other.

Pumpy tuffa climbing. This route traverses a bit but is still of very good quality.There is a second pitch that is easier and can be linked with the first if you don't clip the anchor (for rope drag reasons) making it an 80 foot pitch or so. The second pitch is however sharp and not as good.A difficult start gives way to a good rest off of the huge tuffa/fin. Then tricky climbing leads up and left across the face to the anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
