"Finestra" is probably Margalef's best crag. With over 60 routes, from 5.11a to 5.14d (not to mention several open projects with proposed grades in the 5.15b-range) this crag has something for just about everyone. While famous for its unparalleled concentration of cutting edge routes, this cliff's high number of "moderates" are what keep the crowds coming back. This cliff has more than 10 high-quality 5.11's (including Magrana, one of the best routes at Margalef), around twenty 5.12s, and ten 5.13s.
From Margalef, follow the bridge East across the river towards the "Fonda Tres Pines" Hotel. Heads up for the tree that is literally in the middle of the road! Veer left after the tree, heading up a steep paved road signed for "Ermita Sant Salvador". Continue winding up this road, passing several crags on either side of the canyon. After ~1.8 KM, park at a fork in the road in any of the small pullouts. It looks like there might be a new parking lot going in here.

This spectacular line of tufas & cobbles is, along with Rodellar's Roxy La Primera, one of the best 5.11a sport routes in Spain. The route follows a truly amazing curtain of mini-tufa drips, which has produced a menagerie of intriguing, excellent jugs.Begin a bit left of the groove and climb the slippery slab to a good flake. Traverse right to the corner and across to the good stuff. Crusie up the orange slab on unbelievable flowstone to a good undercling rest.
