Description Suggest change

A maze of canyons with incredible rock.

The main climbing area is called Mascun. This is just one small section of canyon in a area known for it's cayonnering. There is tons of rock around depending on how long one is willing to hike.

The rock is mostly blocky with tuffas and very steep. Stuff that looks like choss is often times very high quality stone.

LOGISTICS
Fly to Barcelona then drive, you could do public transportation but it would leave you about 25 km short of where you need to go and the buses may not run every day of the week so it is not really an option if your stay is short, though if you have unlimited time and no issue with hitch hiking it might work.

WHERE TO STAY
There are 4 main options and several other homes that you might be able to rent a room in.

  • Camping Mascun- the biggest scene and more expensive, camping and bungalows (the 4 person ones were pretty rundown, but the 6 person ones were nicer looking). Located on the right near the end of the road in Rodellar, no need to drive as you are only about a minute or two from the trailhead. Small grocery store and restaurant.
  • Camping El Puente- Quieter camping and bungalows (the 6 person bungalows were about the same price as the 4 person ones at Mascun and as nice) there are also "apartments" for 5 people which are small and cramped, not as nice. Located down a road on the left as you drive towards Rodellar about a km before town. You will need to drive daily as it is a very steep km off the main road down to the camping then another km to the trailhead.
  • Albuergue Las Almunias- Basically a hostel in the small town of Las Almunias 4 km before Rodellar on the left side of the road, small square building. There are 6 rooms with 3 bunkbeds in each and each room has its own bathroom. This is where we stayed and during the week we had the place completely to our selves but if the weather was nice the place was full on the weekends. There is a community kitchen that is small and a dinning area with sofas and tables. There is a restaurant downstairs. This is the cheapest besides camping.
  • There is another place right across the street from the Albuergue, it is a large building, the biggest in town. It is a hotel, albuerge and they also have apartments to rent. The one apartment I saw was pretty large and quite nice, full kitchen and laundry machine, though it was for 8. Don't know how this compares in price to the other options. There is a restaurant here as well.
  • There are several houses in Rodellar that you should be able to rent a room in though they never answered their phones when we called. Casa Orilla, Casa Juliette, etc.
  • There is also a large parking lot below the road on the left as you come into the town of Rodellar, it looked as though you could set up and leave a camper van here, don't know if you have to pay or not.

Getting There Suggest change

Head to Lleida then on N-240 (a new highway is going in called A-22) towards Huesca. After passing through Barbastro continue towards Huesca but turn off towards Abiergo. From Abiergo you can follow signs to Rodellar.
