Climbing Catalonia late April: Tarragona vs Lleida area

Hey guys, I've been drooling over Spanish limestone for a few weeks now but still can't decide where to go. I've got about 3-4 days to climb around Barcelona in late April. Mainly looking for 6c-7a. 

I'm leaning towards Lleida area (collegats, terradets, roca dels arcs) because it seems like there's more multi pitch which is cool and more moderate climbs.

Is there anything I should consider re: weather, availability of cheap accommodations, variety of climbing, etc. between the two areas? It might be possible to hit both but looks unlikely. 

Thanks!

I suggest a focus on terradets area:(cap del ras, bagasses, roca del arc), it's sunny. Collegat is noisy, then highway is bellow and sometimes cold

There is a convenient campground in ager (they rent bungalow).


Enjoy

Thanks Pierre! Anyone else have anything to add? If I do make it to the Tarragona area, does Margalef have the best collection of moderates?

Pull up mallos de riglos and checkout fiesta de biceps.  The climb overhangs 300 feet plus over 1000 ft.

Arc rock has a hostel 6 km below and a great deli in Artesia de sangre
