L'Escletxa

International > Europe > Spain > Catalonia > Montsant

Description

Steep roof to overhanging endurance pocket pulling. The majority of the routes here are low to high 5.13, with the majority of the classics in that range. Additionally, there area few nice moderates on the right side of the wall. Not the most classic zone in Margalef, but a cool zone that you will most likely have all to yourself.

It is in the sun almost all day.

Getting There

A good bit away from Cornundella. It took us about 45 min from town.

From Cornundella de Monsant. Take TV-7021 West to the small town of Escaladei. Take the first right through the town on La Rambla de la Cartoixa. Drive past the ruin and on to the dirt road. Take a left at the fork and follow it for about 15 minutes. You will come to a small parking lot on the left side of the road and a cairn marking the well worn trail. The cliff is visible from the road. It is worth purchasing the Andrada guide for the GPS coordinates and detailed directions.

The dirt road has potholes and rocks, but we made it in a tiny car, just heads up while driving and take it slow.
