DescriptionCan Torxa is a top destination for those in search of fun, high quality moderates. This cliff has twenty or so routes ranging in grade from 5.9 to 5.12a. The cliff is relatively high, with routes up to 70 feet or so. The cliff faces nearly due South, but with a good selection of trees and some large dihedrals, there is shade to be found on hot days.
Most of the climbs are less than vertical, though some involve a brief roof or bulge. Despite that, these routes are relatively steep for their grades, and therefore quite juggy & fun. There are a few climbs, particularly the stellar "Chachi qui Chapi" (5.11d), that are consistently overhanging. Other recommended lines include the steep & varied "Somiatruites" (5.11a), and the excellent pocket-fest "Freekando" (5.10d).
Getting ThereHead 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 the lot on the right, below the towers, or continue between the towers along the road to various parking spaces along the road. The Torxa cliff begins ~300yds past the parking lot, on the left (North) side of the road, just after a sweeping left turn in the paved road.
